Let the Little Children Come

Let the Little Children Come aims to provide gospel lessons for children. Rather than just a boring verbal lesson or a plain picture / colouring page they help to keep children’s attention and to convey the message to children living in the “golden age of technology and visual inputs”. The gospel tracts are all specially designed to capture and hold the attention of children, while not distracting them from the core message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Here is a sample video from their website to show how these gospel tracks could work.

Here are a few photos I took from the samples I received that will be donated to a local church in my area:

 

There are pop-up books, bracelets, and these “moving” picture books as well as many more things. If this is something you would like to know more about here is the link to their site.  Each package has 10 different things within them, or they can be ordered separately.

**MommaKauk received this sample package free of charge. I was asked to share about this product but was not paid in any manner other than the free samples.

AND… speaking of letting the little children come, if anyone was wondering where I had disappeared to this past year… we have begun another adventure. My little bundle of sleepless joy was born 5 months ago. This time pregnancy was not so wonderful, but I am back and starting to feel better, though lacking sleep!

 

 

Christmas is quickly approaching. . . be sure to spend a little time with your loved ones. The physical presents do not matter, its about the feeling of Christmas and spending time with those close to your heart. Let the little ones come to you, spend time with them, love them… and smile. Even in my lack of sleep delirium I know that this too will pass – and far too quickly.

VeggieTales

I was offered this book in exchange for my honest opinion AND to give away on my blog! There is one story for every single day of the year which has a Bible passage, short message and prayer. My toddler is only 2.5 years old and he is able to repeat the prayers after I say them. Each page has a different veggieTales character at the bottom as well. My son loves seeing the new pictures each day, and it’s short enough that it keeps his attention. I have the book for boys – not sure if there are different stories / characters in the one for girls as I have not seen that one.

About the Book by the author:

Every Day with God is the latest 365-day devotional (one for boys and another for girls) from VeggieTales. The updated content and art offer the perfect opportunity for parent and child to share time together each day. Each entry includes a Bible verse, short devotion, Thought of the Day, and prayer. The content will help children learn more about God and develop a daily practice to keep Him close in their lives. The book is perfect for bedtime reading, family devotion time, or as a fresh way to start each day!

The Baby Sea Turtle

This is a fantastic little book, targeted at pre-school aged children, that I was sent in hard copy, in exchange for my honest review.

It has amazing textural pictures with lots of detail I found, exactly the type of book I used to read to my grade 1-2 students in art class when demonstrating a certain textural element I wanted them to try and reproduce in a picture of their choosing. I especially love how they illustrated the wet water droplets on the Momma Turtle.

This story shows a little bit about the reproduction cycle of turtles from swimming to a beach, laying eggs burying them, and then hatching 8 weeks later. It also shows what can happen if a baby turtle gets spun around, away from the sea.

Here is a quick video I made, let me know what your thoughts are about this book from the beginning few pages (and the new style of video review I’m trying!)
– and I REALLY need to review a tripod or something for iPhones for better camera steadiness I think!!!!

When We Cook Together #bookreview

This is what the FIRST page says: Jacob is six and loves to cook. He loves being in the kitchen and using the pots, skillets and utensils. Jacob loves the aroma of fresh ingredients, spices and something good baking in the oven. But most of all, he loves spending time with his Mom.

Except for being six years of age, this sounds EXACTLY like my son! Just from this page, I am in LOVE with this book. This could totally have been written about us. Even the son having blond hair, and mom having reddish brown could totally be us in 5 years (does anyone see the resemblance? I do have blue eyes.. but other than that?)
