Read with Me

The Play-Along Bible is the perfect book for my 1 and 3 year old. 50 stories are provided in short, beautifully illustrated pages. The pages are glossy and the pictures are cute. Correlating Scripture is provided for each story. 

The story has short, easy to understand sentences. Each sentence is followed by an action in parentheses and in red ink. For example: "In the beginning, everything was completely dark. You couldn't see a thing. (Place you hands over your eyes. Shut them tight.)"

My kids both enjoy when we read from this book. It allows us to get some wiggles out as we learn about popular stories from the Bible. At the end of the stories, my kids often ask to repeat the one that we just read. And that is fine with me!

I love books that encourage creativity. Whatever is Lovely is a beautiful coloring book promoting "reflection and worship." 45 illustrated pages offer beautiful square pictures that can be framed as is (black and white) or colored. It would even be fun to give a page as a gift in place of a card.

Some pages have verses of Scripture. Others have words to a song or an inspirational quote. On the back of each coloring sheet additional words to songs or Scripture are written to provide further reflection. 

The pages are thick and sturdy, allowing for markers to be used without bleeding through.

The Life Giving Home was an encouraging book to browse. Divided into smaller sections, I was able to easily pick this book up to read a little in the midst of hectic days. 

As a stay at home mom, I often get bogged down with the details and tasks of the day. It was great to be reminded of the gift I have to be able to make my home into a place that my family loves to be. I set the tone. It has encouraged me to get our home back to be the refreshing retreat that it once was. Some tips were practical help the home run more efficiently. Other tips are encouraging and inspiring.

I have loved reading Sarah Young's devotionals for myself and was excited to see that she had written some just for kids. Jesus Today For Kids is a cute little hardback devotional for kids to use daily to learn more about their relationship with Jesus. The devo is written as if Jesus were speaking the words directly to the child. And each devo is followed by several Scriptures to reflect on. 

I look forward to using this in family devotion time and then teaching my children to have a personal time with the Lord.
