ABOUT THE BOOK
I'm always on the lookout for books that I can share with my eight-year-old granddaughter, and this is now at the top of my list! Author Max Lucado has adapted his best-selling book, You Can Count on God, into this version that has 100 devotions just for kids. Each two-page entry begins with Bible scripture, and it's followed by a short devotion with even more scripture. The second page has an appropriate closing, and this may be a question, a prayer, or something for them to remember. As I thumbed through the pages, I noticed the catchy titles, the easy-to-understand text, and the different topics that are especially appropriate for young readers, with a variety of Bible stories and life lessons that will keep them from being bored. Titles such as 'Tucked Under God's Wings', 'More than a Little Lunch', and 'Best Brother Ever', along with reminders that 'God Cares for You', 'Jesus Prays for You', and 'God Can Use You'.
This book is a wonderful way for parents or grandparents to share their faith with their children and grandchildren, but I can see it being a wonderful resource for Sunday school teachers and Youth Group leaders. This hardback copy with its navy-blue ribbon bookmark is perfect for gift-giving but do plan to keep a copy for your special young person. Help them to better understand God's Word, and to grow in their Christian faith.
I received a copy of this book from FrontGate Media. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
