Book Review: A Very Thankful Prayer

A Very Thankful Prayer is the perfect book this fall. With it's adorable pictures and a great list of fun fall activities, you can use it as your check list as you teach your little ones to be thankful this fall. It also reminds me of all the things I enjoyed as a kid during the fall season, which I look forward to sharing with my little ones.

"I'm thankful for 
the colored leaves...
the farmer's fields... 
my family...
pumpkin patches...
the friends I have...
the juicy apples..."

As we enjoy the fall festivities, we'll use this book as our Thankful prayer. I would recommend this board book for babies, toddlers, preschoolers.

Book Review: Night Night, Train

We've gotten almost every single one of Amy Parker's Night Night books. We absolutely adore the Night Night, Train book. The first night we got it, my preschooler wanted to read it 4 times. It's a great little bedtime book... quick. My favorite kind. I also like that it's a sturdy board book. If your little one loves trains, you'll definitely want this book.

Book Review: Jesus Loves Me!

We loved this classic sing-along book Jesus Loves Me! This sturdy board book with padded covers has the lyrics to one of our favorite songs and adorable illustration. This is a great gift for babies and preschoolers. They'll love singing along and looking at the cute animal pictures.

Book Review: The Lucky Few

I have to begin with a warning first if you decide to read The Lucky Few. You'll want to be sure to have a good solid couple days and a box of tissues as you read this book. If you have a heart for adoption or fostering, you'll definitely want to read Heather's story. I have to confess, I couldn't even get through the forward without getting teary! I loved seeing Heather's heart as she shares her story of becoming a mother. I want to share this book with all of my adopted friends, friend who've fostered or adopted. Be encouraged and share the joys and tears with this amazing family.

Book Review: All things Bright and Beautiful

All things Bright and Beautiful is an adorable board book with a handle. It's a very chunky board book with padded covers and a cute little red handle. The pages have adorable illustrations and are textured with glitter, bumps, etc. The bright colors and textures will keep your baby entertained at least for a few minutes. It's a quick read and your baby will love touching the pages. It's small and light. I would recommend this for babies and even toddlers. They'll love carrying this sweet little book around!

Book Review: The Beginner's Bible Carry-Along Treasury

Take your original The Beginner's Bible, cut it by 1/3, add a magnetic flap and a handle. That's your  The Beginner's Bible Carry-Along Treasury. When I selected this book, I wasn't sure if it was going to be the complete Beginner's Bible or not. I wish it was, but I'll still settle for this one. This still has both old and new testament stories. The stories and illustrations are the same as those from the Beginner's Bible. If you already have one, you won't need this. However... this would be a great little first Bible for 2-3 year olds who like may want to take a Bible to church or carry it around the house. Some of the other reviews didn't know why the magnetic flap was necessary, but I like it. It's adorable and what 2 year old doesn't like magnets? Recommended for toddlers and preschoolers.

Book Review: The Beginner's Bible for Little Ones

If you haven't noticed a theme in my blog... I really really love The Beginner's Bible series. The Beginner's Bible for Little Ones is very similar to the Stories About Jesus version in design. This is a smaller sturdy board book. It has the classic Beginner's Bible illustrations (some very much the same). This board book version include both New and Old Testament stories, including the creation story, Noah, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lion's Den, Jesus' Birth, Jesus Feeds Thousands, and the resurrection story. This is perfect for babies and young toddlers! Especially if they are anything like my little T-Rex! I highly recommend this!
