This devotional workbook was just about everything we were looking for in a devotional book for our son. My daughter is using the one for girls 9-12. It offers a scripture reference, then a short illustrative story, a few questions, suggestions for prayer time and an activity to reinforce! We LOVE these books and hope to find another one for this coming school year.
I subtracted one star because the questions are sometimes very hard for an 8 year old boy to answer. They really make them dig deep and often need an adult's help. This can be good or bad. I was trying to encourage a personal quiet time for my kids and if I wasn't looking over their shoulder sometimes they would give shallow answers because they were frustrated with their inability to dig.

We love this book. We gave it to your son for christmas and are using it as bible time in our homeschool. Our son is 7 and really enjoys the stories. Each devotion has a bible verse, a story that relates to the bible verse, a your turn section where it ask questions, a prayer, and a activity.
Very nice book!
Spiral bound.

We used this as part of our homeschool curriculum for a year. This is a great devotion for kids who are really in tune with God, or for parents to do with their kids. It asks a lot of questions about tangible ways God works in the life of the child ("How has Jesus shown himself to you?"), & though these are all great questions - I feel like they're a tad old for 6-9 year olds. Our son is 8, & is a believer on his own, but has a very difficult time answering these questions by himself. Definitely a discussion-type devotion. It's also disheartened our son a bit - he wants to physically SEE Jesus, the way The 12 did. When this devotion uses Bible stories about Jesus & his friends (surprising his friends while they were fishing - after he was crucified), & then the follow-up question is "How was Jesus surprised you with His presence?", my son's heart hurts & longs for tangible relationship with Jesus, the man. I know a lot of people will probably say "You should have done more" or "What are great opportunity to talk, heal, disciple your child", & yes, that is true. We may come back to this devotion in a year or 2, but for now, we are finding another option, something less subjective.

Bought this as a gift for 8-year old grandson. Very pleased with content and learning activities. Should be a way to have fun while learning more about God's Word

Easy to follow, really designed for boys. The flow of some of the stories seem to be more challenging for a 6yr old (my son is 6) and more appropriate for a 9year old i dont think that is a negative. My son reads the topic for the day and attempts the follow on questions. When its beyond him most times it represents an opportunity to challenge him to the next level. He is really learning more about God while challenging his brain at the same time. Still love it!

I purchased this for our 6-1/2 yr old grandson. He thoroughly enjoys the interaction and the lessons in the book. He is able to respond to simple questions in his own handwriting. The book has places in nearly every lesson for him to write an answser or complete a task. He is learning about God's love for him, his family and for creation. I plan to purchase the next volume, as well!

Purchased this for my 6-year-old, however I now use it as a bed-time devotional for him and his 4-year-old brother. They both enjoy the devotionals and discussing what is in the reading, but their favorite part is the activity that goes along (usually an activity done inside the devotional on the provided pages.

I bought this for my nine year old son. I found it very age appropriate with good stories that help the child relate the specific Bible passage with their own life. I would definately recommend this book.

I really do like this book but I think some of the devotions are more for 7 or 8 year olds. My son is 6 1/2 and I'm not sure he quite gets the concept yet.
