Book Description

READ and HEAR edition: Jago and Sally Lloyd-Jones, the creators of the bestselling Jesus Storybook Bible, present this first volume of gorgeous, simple-yet-profound thoughts on faith taken from their book, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing. This edition of the first eighteen thoughts (“Dance!” to “Glorify!”) uses a conversational tone paired perfectly with the illustrations to look at profound spiritual truths—drawing insights from creation, history, science, the writings of great thinkers and preachers and writers, and more—to turn the reader’s eyes toward the God who loves them with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

Perfect for family devotions, bedtime, story time, or even as a companion to The Jesus Storybook Bible, this ebook edition gives you an opportunity to make your heart sing, no matter where you are.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Illustrated with dramatic, soft-edged digital artwork, the 101 free-verse poems in this spacious collection present Christian messages from the Bible to talk about at home and in church groups. The frequent question-and-answer format adds to the conversational tone, starting with lines accompanying an image of a huge horse leaping across the end pages: “God loves the horse / how much more must he love you?” “Dance!” shows “the whole universe dancing around the sun.” In contrast is “Cataclysm!,” which discusses planets that are in uproar because “we sinned.” Some entries are lighthearted: just as you don’t put porridge in a car engine, the Bible says don’t put anyone except God in the center of your life. Most, though, are serious and may disturb some, even as they stress forgiveness: God transformed murderers such as Moses and St. Paul into heroic leaders—“what could he do for you?” At the bottom of each page is the biblical passage on which the poem is based, and appended sources are paired with “more things to think about.” Grades 1-4. --Hazel Rochman

As a Christ following mother of three, I became familiar with this author because of the fantastic Jesus Storybook Bible. I am thrilled to see that this book has the same characteristics that led my family to enjoy the Storybook Bible so much. It is visually pleasing with gorgeous illustrations and a great feeling hardback book. The content is equally pleasing-- theologically sound (foreward by Tim Keller) and well written prose.

My children enjoy this book, but some days it functions as a devotion for me too.

Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every child should have one...grownups too! October 15, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with the most joyful, deeply meaningful, and encouraging messages...each page is a separate pearl, containing a wonderful thought, and a bible verse. The icing on the cake is the absolutely stunning illustrations. I cannot decide which is more captivating, the words, or the gorgeous artistic accompaniment. The truth is that each stands up to, and enhances the other. I have enjoyed reading this book myself; have purchased it for each of my children (ages 12-21) and nieces...and had to send one to my 74 year old mother, to read to her step-grand-babies.
I'm sure this book will inspire many evenings, and be a treasured favorite.
Well done Sally! the Jesus Storybook Bible was exceptional, but this is another realm of inspiration altogether...

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Devotional Book for Children November 25, 2012
THOUGHTS TO MAKE YOUR HEART SING is the follow-up to Sally Lloyd-Jones' groundbreaking JESUS STORYBOOK BIBLE. What the previous book did to give children a Christ-centered narrative covering the whole Bible, this new book acts as a collection of devotional thoughts to guide children to cultivate their relationship with Jesus. Combined with the beautiful artwork of Jago, THOUGHTS TO MAKE YOUR HEART SING is a great companion to the JESUS STORYBOOK BIBLE in drawing children into a growing knowledge of and relationship with Jesus.

The foreword to the book was written by Timothy Keller and he describes the book as "the best, first introduction for children to have their own time with Jesus." I love this book because of its focus on encouraging children to have their own time with Jesus. I have three small children, and this is something my wife and I want to cultivate in our children early. This book is the perfect resource and really meets that need in our lives.

My children love THOUGHTS TO MAKE YOUR HEART SING, and my daughter calls it her "very own Jesus book." The devotional thoughts and the artwork included with each one are great for drawing my children's attention. If you have children, this book will be a great addition to helping you disciple your own children to know and love Jesus.

We got this a few hours ago and I"ve already read several stories to my kids. We love her Bible for kids so we ordered this without hesitation. Worth every penny and as you can see my kids love it. Thank you for your work Sally.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT THE WHOLE BOOK June 8, 2014
By Brooks
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

Even though Amazon lists this as the "Kindle Version" of the Hardcover, this is only the first section of the book. Amazon should NOT list this as a "Kindle Version". If you want the whole book, you need to buy the hardcover. Very deceptive advertising. This is the first time I have ever had an issue like this with Amazon. Very disappointed. I have always found Amazon to be the most trustworthy of retailers, so I was shocked that they allowed such a deceptive advertisement for this Kindle pamphlet (which is what it is because it is not a book).

After searching I found the full Kindle version is ASIN: B00A69DSHM. Amazon needs to change the link for the Kindle version on the hardcover page to this one instead to avoid this happening to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful children's devotion December 4, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sally Lloyd-jones and the illustrator do not disappoint in this book! My only wish? That each day's reading were longer and that more scripture was printed right with the devotion. Overall, definitely recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sally knows how to deliver theology to children! October 15, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sally has done it again! Although I did not enjoy the artwork in her Jesus Storybook Bible, it's the best children's Bible I've ever seen (I looked for a really good children's Bible for 35 years before hers was published). Her new book, "Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing" reveals the heart of God to children in a more personal way. Sally knows what children need to hear and she has done a masterful job of allowing God's Word to speak to them right where they live. The book is exactly the right size for children to hold; and it uses words children can read without talking down to them. AND the artwork is beautiful - it's soft, colorful and fun. Perfect!
Don't save this book for children, enjoy it for yourself as well.
