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!  Continue reading

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.  Continue reading

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. Continue reading

Easter Stories and Prayers {Book Review}

978-1-4964-0280-6

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. For example, “What’s Easter really about,” & “Why is there a cross?” are questions that have come from the mouths of my own children. 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.
