Hate to be a party-pooper, and happy that the book fits for some, but 'forewarned' for others who may find it like me.
G. Hill
It has a situation for every day of the year with a multiple choice question to get your kids thinking about what is the right way to respond.
Jessica M. McGuire
I read it with my kids every night and they look forward to the little story and they take turns guessing the correct behavior.

This book presents a relevant situation (in story form), gives a multiple-choice option for resolving the situation, then applies the Scripture to the situation.
Great tool for stimulating discussion with your children! It's concise, interesting, and relevant. My husband is a pastor and thinks this book is a jewel! Hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Format: Paperback
I have to agree with previous reviewers. This book is based on a really good idea, however, I find a lot of the entries are not really appropriate for my 8 year old. He does understand the concepts, and it makes it a lot easier to help "expand" on the idea and open up further discussion, but most of the situations presented aren't relevant to any child under 12 years old.

The book is divided into 365 different devotions - organized by date only. It is difficult to determine what each story is about without reading a little bit of it (each average 18-25 typed lines)--you can't simply go by the title of the story. An index of 'situations' would be nicer. There's also no actual Bible verses listed in the back of the book as previously mentioned in other reviews. There is an "Index of Verses" organized by Old vs. New Testament, and each verse has the corresponding daily devotion listed. You still need your own Bible to actually look up the verses.

Appropriateness - it depends on each child - but this book includes a lot of situations involving 'youth groups' at church, babysitting, being on sports teams at school, the child working at VBS or in other 'leadership' type roles. Like I said - I'd say this is geared more towards middle school or jr high age kids.

It's still got a lot of great information in it and provides us with a good opportunity to discuss every day situations and to use our Bibles on a daily basis!

We have been using this book for about a month with our 7 & 9 year old. While the concept is great (short story presenting a problem then kids pick from 3 multi-choices after reading a scripture), I often find it frustrating for a couple reasons.
First the 3 choices are often 2 ridiculously obvious non-choices followed by the third obvious answer. Second the scriptures used are often either irrelevant or such a stretch fit to the situation presented as to be irrelevant.
It seems to me that the author had a great idea but got caught mass producing 365 situations. Hate to be a party-pooper, and happy that the book fits for some, but 'forewarned' for others who may find it like me. Strongly suggest a pre-read prior to purchasing.

Format: Paperback
We enjoy this book purely because we love laughing at the stupid multiple choice answers where it's so obvious which one you should pick. 99% of the time it goes something like this:

Bob's friend broke a promise. Should Bob:

a. Scream and hit his friend.

b. Run away from his friend and never speak to him again.

c. Forgive his friend.

Yeah, pretty much just a waste of time.

To add to that, the scripture references often don't even relate to the situation at all.

Good idea, but falls ridiculously short of being even close to a good use of time.

Format: Paperback
I purchased Sticky Situations as part of the expectations for a kids small group. I am wanting to teach them the importance of daily devotions and also help them to think on their own when they need to make decisions. This devotional provides a situational story and then gives the reader several options of ways to respond. After they make their choice the reader can then confirm their answer through the scripture reference. Kids are faced with many choices aside from the one made at home and this book should help them make right choices.

I have been searching for a way to do devotions with my children for several years and finally had a revelation that we would be wise to do them in the morning rather than at night. It seems we are always late getting to bed and in a hurry to get there in time for early rising the next day for school. It dawned on me that the kids sit down together each morning for breakfast and this would be the ideal time to direct their attention to daily devotions. While the kids eat, I read the devotional and they share and participate in those few moments before we disperse to our busy daily lives. This book is a FABULOUS asset to us and after trying numerous books have found this one to be most intriguing and applicable to their lives - they are ages 11(girl) and 13(boy). The stories that have been written are very age appropriate and usually the kids have had first hand experience with the topics discussed. At the end of each story, the author asks the kids "What should he do?" and lists several choices. This makes the kids listen carefully and just like in life, realize they have choices and that the best choice is usually not the easiest or most appealing at the moment. There is then a bible passage to read followed by a short commentary of why the "best" choice is indeed the best. This book has sparked many conversations within our family and I feel we have grown spiritually as a result of it. I would endorse this book whole-heartedly to anyone wishing to advance the spiritual growth of their family!
