With Love, From Me to You {Children’s Book Review}


With Love, From Me to You By Dr. Mary Manz Simon is an endearing tale for children that helps them to understand what love is and what it can look like.  It’s the perfect book to pick up for both boys and girls ages 2- 6 years old during not just the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday season but year round.

In this book, we are introduced to a postman bear that travels here and there on a train. On, this train, we meet several different characters both young and old as the story unfolds. The postman sends good cheer by waving to someone that is alone, stopping to share kindness with someone that is sad, reminding someone who is angry that God loves them, and so forth.

ALL FISH FACES: Photos and Fun Facts about Tropical Reef Fish

I love learning about the ocean and all the creatures and plants that make it their home. I used to live on the Coast when I was a child and was quite taken with learning about all the wonderful things it gives back to people.  I love that the sea is so vast with many undiscovered species we’ve yet to even lay our eyes upon. Life is more interesting when some things have left a mystery. Today, however, we are actually going to take a look at the many fish that have been discovered in Tam Warner Minton’s latest book “All Fish Faces“.

These things include dancing in the rain, spring planting, and puddles! Speaking of puddles, we’ve been enjoying the book Puddle Jumpers – by Anne Margaret Lewis (author) and Nancy Cote (illustrator)!

I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God {Book Review}

51uuktBthHL

 

I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God is a book that I am happy to have added to my families collection of Bible story books. This book is like none I’ve come across before. It focuses on the many names of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and spends an adequate amount of time explaining each through scripture found in both the Old and New Testament, a devotional, and ties it all together with a prayer. I can’t think of a better way to learn about the Greatness of God in all of his marvelousness but through his names! My children ages 7 and 5 years old have begun delving into a deeper understanding of who God!

Elwood Bigfoot: Wanted: Birdie Friends! {Giveaway, Review & Author Interview}

elwood

Elwood Bigfoot: Wanted: Birdie Friends! is a cute book. Both my 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter  have enjoyed having this read to them. I’ve caught them during our weeks picking this book up on their own and gazing at all the colorfully interesting illustrations. The illustrations perfectly capture the feelings of characters!  The main character in this story is seeking friendship and his ways in going about it are interesting to witness. This book can open up conversations with a child about making friends . The story mainly is about  perseverance and not giving up. I believe at one point or another there’s been a bit of this Bigfoot in all of us.
