Book Review: The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers 2

“The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers 2” by Carla Barnhill is a delightful devotional for children. It is illustrated with adorable Little Blessings children throughout by Elena Kucharik, the artist for Care Bears.

For each day of the year, there is a short verse followed by a paragraph emphasizing how the Bible, God and Jesus fit into a child’s life. This is followed by a two line rhyming poem.

I, along with my 2 children, ages three and five, find this devotional charming and very appropriate. The daily readings are the right length for little ones and it applies to their world. The girls look forward to reading it each day. It is a wonderful way to share the bible with your children.

We also love the illustrations. The children in the illustrations all have different looks, from color of hair, to color of skin, or race. Any child who reads this will feel comfortable. I also like the different colors/races because it helps expose my children to others who may not look like they do or live in our neighborhood. The pictures also show typical things that a child experiences in their life.

The size of the book is nice,  measuring 6" x 7.5".  Perfect for little hands to hold.

The only shortcoming I feel this book has is that it is actually named for “preschoolers,” when I really feel that it is appropriate for preschoolers and beyond, maybe up to second grade.

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. My review is my honest opinion. I did not receive any compensation for this review.
