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.

The Adventures of Pajama Girl and the Coronation of the Cupcake Queen is a cute story. My six year old daughter told me she really likes this book since it features two of her favorite things, pajamas and cupcakes. Even I was drawn in by the illustrations of a dream land filled with sugary sweet treats. But all sugary goodness aside, there’s a very important message to be learned in this tale. The lesson is a very pertinent one about not stealing, remembering to include others when possible, forgiveness, and not to ruin other people’s day just because your feelings got hurt and you got left out. These lessons are important to learn as children will certainly encounter them in their own daily lives.
Easter Stories and Prayers (Little Blessings) is a special edition! Children by nature are curious and have many questions when it comes to just about anything.

In recognizing this the author answers and explains the who, what, when, where, and why surrounding the story of Jesus’ resurrection in a way children ages 3-6 years old can easily understand.
Bible Favorites One Sentence Storybooks by Nancy I. Sanders is a darling collection of beginner readers. I was drawn to these right away to begin using with my four year old son. Oh, how I wished these were around when my oldest was learning to read. After beginning use and evaluating thoroughly, I feel this is a wonderful way to present the Word of God to young children. These have the ability to fill little hearts with the truth of God and the love He has for us. I believe children will gain knowledge & understanding as well as a sense of accomplishment memorizing these stories word by word.
