Book Review: Dinner for Dinos


If your little one loves dinos as much as mine, they'll love this adorable board book, Dinner For Dinos by Ben Whitehouse. This is a very well made boardbook with padded covers and solid pages. The illustrations are so adorable. I like that it promotes healthy eating and good manners. This is perfect for my little guy. I would recommend this book for all dino loving toddlers and preschoolers. The best part is, it's a super quick read for bedtime!

Book Review: I Prayed For You


I Prayed For You  by Jean Fischer is the prefect book for a mom to be! It'll encourage the mom to be to pray for all the wonderful things to come with her new baby. This book is a nice hard covered book with beautiful illustrations. The book goes through each baby stage and has a little prayer for it.

The book starts off with:
Before you were born, I asked God for something special, I asked Him for you.

"Dear loving Father in heaven above, send a sweet baby for Mama to love."

To first first steps, first soccer game, to first day in school... this will make you tear up as you pray along with your book for your little one. This will be a great reminder for you to pray as a mom. My preschooler loved the pictures as well.

Book Review: Night Night Jungle


We were excited to add the Night Night Jungle by Amy Parker to our Night Night collection! Like all the other Night Night books, this has really adorable illustrations and we loved identifying the jungle animals. I personally loved the sloth! The story itself isn't wonderful, but your preschooler will most likely not mind since the pictures are entertaining enough. As with all the other Night Night books, this has a nice puffy board book cover, and the pages are solid board book material. I would recommend this book for babies and preschoolers.

Book Review: I Can Only Imagine

Since "I Can Only Imagine" is one of my favorite songs, I had to get the I Can Only Imagine: A Friendship with Jesus Now and Forever by Bart Millard of MercyMe. This book is a nice hard covered book. The pages are good quality. The size is perfect for a preschooler. The story is basically talking about all the favorite things the little boy enjoys and asking if God would love them too. It encourages a relationship with Jesus now as well as looking forward to what wonderful things heaven will entail. I love that this book talks about pets in heaven. I would recommend this book for preschoolers and for parents who really like the song!

Book Review: Jesus Calling


This Jesus Calling adult coloring book is a absolutely beautiful. I got it as a gift for my sister, who's really into drawing and coloring. One thing I really liked about this specific book the quality of the pages! The pages are nice and thick. You can use various coloring mediums on the pages. The pictures, inspirational sayings and patterns are great for some coloring therapy! I recommend this coloring book for all adults who enjoy crafting, and doodling!

Book Review: Jesus Loves the World


I can't help it... I just love the Beginner's Bible series, and so do my little ones. The Jesus Loves the World is the story of Jesus, his ministry, his death, and his resurrection. I didn't realize when I first requested this book that it would be the Easter story... but it's perfect for Easter. Unlike many of the other Beginner Bible series, this one isn't the padded board book. It's the thinner type. The cut of the book is fun and as all the other series, the Jesus Loves the World has the classic illustration style. I am glad my preschoolers have this to add to their collection. I would definitely recommend adding this to your child's Easter basket.

Book Review: In the Middle of the Mess


I recently started reading In the Middle of the Mess by Sheila Walsh. This book is not for the faint of heart. The opening chapter of the book is a letter from Sheila to her dad, it's full of emotions and darkness. For those who don't know, Sheila Walsh has battled with depression and thoughts of suicide for her entire life. She is very open about her struggles but also gives hope in knowing the goodness of God. I started this post by saying "I recently started reading...". This book at this time in my life is a little bit too intense on the emotional side. I was hoping for something just encouraging, but this book is much more than that. It was too sad for me and I struggled to read it. It may help other people who are struggling with some difficult situations in their life, but it wasn't the right book for me.
