I continue to be reminded just how awesome this version of the Bible is for young children as our daughter doesn’t want to put it down!
If you are looking for a Bible that your child will truly enjoy reading, this is it! Set up using a graphic novel format and featuring beautiful illustrations, this Bible has been a real winner in developing a desire to read the Bible daily for our daughter.
The unlikely friendship of Bear and Bitsy makes for a delightful story which features quiet acts of courage. The illustrations in this book truly enhance the text. This one is a winner!
In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to feature The Wump World. This book highlights the value and importance of being kind to the environment within a story that is engaging and enjoyable.
I really enjoy well crafted wordless books for children. The Girl and the Bicycle is an absolute delight. This story highlights the powers of persistence, hard work, and self-sacrifice and provides the opportunity for a great deal of discussion.
I was recently asked for independent reading book suggestions. This was one of our daughter’s favorites because it featured so many cute animals.
We are always on the hunt for independent reader books that feature colorful pictures. Our daughter is delighted with our newest find ~ The Frog and Friends series. It features Frog and his friends: Rabbit, Raccoon, Squirrel, and Possum who enjoy spending time together and highlights their adventures. Each book is made up of three short stories and the text of each story is enhanced with the use of colorful pictures.
The cover of this book immediately caught my eye. We have a little lady at home who enjoys fantasy stories and actually looks a great deal like the young lady featured on the front cover. The fact that the plot of the book features a young girl who is challenged with becoming a knight and using her courage and skill in order to save her kingdom instantly grabbed our daughter’s attention and interest. Igraine the Brave has quickly become a favorite and has now been re-read multiple times all in the course of a few week.
Brave Girls: Faithful Friends ~ A 90-Day Devotional for Brave Girls Like You! is an terrific devotional book for girls 7-10. I had reviewed another devotional in the Brave Girls Series, and I was excited to have the opportunity to review another. The one page devotions are filled with great insights about being a good friend and developing strong friendships. The questions and activities coupled with each reading reinforce the important lessons presented and are well done. This is another winner!

13 Art Movements Children Should Know is a good introductory book featuring key periods in art. The text is very accessible, and the representative art work featured from each period enhances the reader’s experience. This is a worthwhile resource for introducing children to art from a historical perspective.
I hope the Easter Bunny hops by with a few new books for you!
Reading this book has become a special Easter tradition for our family.
The Flowering Cross was a very quick favorite for our daughter. As soon as I finished reading it she wanted me to read it again! It is a touching Easter story which focuses on the transformational power of God’s love.
Katie is a six year old little girl who truly loves God. She displays her unconditional love and kindness to her neighbor Jack who is known throughout the neighborhood for being “mean”. Soon her kindness not only brings out kindness and gentleness in Jack but also a willingness to accept God’s love.
The illustrations in this book are amazing. They bring the story to life with the use of vivid color and detail. They truly enhance the story for the reader.
Bible verses as well as faith imprints which include discussion starters are found throughout the book and provide a terrific addition to the story. Additionally, directions on how to create a flowering cross are also included at the end of the story. This was particularly appreciated by this reader since our daughter’s second comment after asking me to read the story again was a request for us to make a flowering cross!
