If you want your children to connect their daily lives to Biblical principals in language your preschooler will understand, then this is the book for you. The author, a speaker and writer for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) grabbed my son's attention from the first sentence. The beauty of the short, but sweet devotions is that they are interactive. Simple questions get right to the heart of the day's story and offer a chance for your child to share their feelings.

Here's an example from December 27th's devotional titled, "Win or Lose"

"Parker and Jack are having a snowball fight. Each boy hopes he will win! Do you like to win when you play games? Everyone likes to win. But when you play games, everyone loses now and then. Did you know there is something you can never lose? You can never loes God's love. No matter who may be against you. God will always be on your side."

Notice that this is a Winter story? I've found that the more relevant the situation the more my son get's out of our devotional time. The day about "Working for Fun" caught his attention since he loves to bake cookies:

"Kaitlyn, Jack and Parker are making Christmas cookies. It will take a lot of work. But when the cookies are done, they will get a reward - they'll have cookies to eat together! The Bible says that hard work often brings happy rewards. When the kids eat their cookies, do you think they will be happy they worked so hard?"

Seeds are being planted in my son and that makes me one happy Mama! But what about actual scripture verses, you ask? Not to worry! At the bottom of each page is a Bible verse and a prayer. The prayers rhymes, which I love. I have my son repeat every few words after me.

"Lord, when there's work that needs to be done, help me remember that work can be fun. (December 18th's Working for Fun devotional)"

This book is awesome. I like this one even better than the original 365 Blesssings for Young Children. This book has different daily stories and devotions all with the same charactors as in the I'm Zoey, I'm Kaitlyn, I'm Parker... books. Very sweet. Excellent for 3 year olds.

We have a 3-year-old who, I'm sure like every 3-year-old, is stretching his wings and testing boundaries and the patience of his parents! It seems like a constant drum beat of telling him the importance of obedience, in one form or another. One night, after I was at my wit's end of trying to put him to bed, I thought to myself that I've got to do something different. The nightly ritual of 2 "regular" books + our prayers had been working, but I wanted to end the day with our 3-year-old having Jesus in his thoughts, and in his heart, knowing that with our Creator, He can do great and mighty things--even in a pre-schooler. After tucking the lil' guy in bed, I searched online for a good devotional Bible, and came across this one. I like the One Year Bible (I myself have one and find in it's simplicity that it's very profound), so I felt comfortable purchasing this book for our son. I'm so glad that I did! We now read it every night before he goes to sleep. It teaches so many Godly, good principles. I love how it has short Bible verses and prayers to conclude the "day"...our son has already memorized a couple scriptures, which is so cool because we draw upon them when the going gets tough. Highly recommend this book for any parent and youngster!

We end each night's book reading with the daily reading from this book - my girls love it they ask for more each night. The stories are relatable to children (and adults, alike) - there are questions within the stories that you can choose to ask your preschooler or not - and the pictures are just right for little ones. We end by reading the short Bible verse at the bottom of the page and our girls "repeat after me" the small rhyming prayer at the end, that also relates to the story. We are finding this is a wonderful way to introduce the Bible to our small children (3.5 years and 2 years).

Utilizing the One Year Bible by Tyndale, Devotions for Preschoolers is a great introduction to daily quiet times with God. The Little Blessings collection features four children: Kaitlyn, Zoe, Parker and Jack. This book is no exception. The book is organized by dates and includes 366 (one extra for leap year) one-page devotions designed specifically for preschoolers. Each offers a short story about one or all of the main characters followed by a Bible verse (or two) and a prayer. All the stories are highly applicable to children in the target age group. The prayer is told in rhyming verse, usually just two or three lines.

Crystal Bowman, the author of this book and numerous others, is a former preschool teacher. She is also a writer and speaker for MOPS International. The illustrator, Elena Kucharik, has over 100 children's books to her credit including the entire Little Blessings collection. She was also the lead artist for the Care Bears.

What I Like: The format is great! It's short and sweet, perfect for kids this age. The stories are of high interest to preschoolers. They talk about what they want to talk about: playing dress up, painting, sharing, animals, books, toys, friends, family... then tie those topics into elements of faith. The Scripture applications are age-appropriate. I love the illustrations! They are so tender and very colorful.

What I Dislike: I found nothing wrong with the book, but did feel a void in content. I would like to see an introduction for parents explaining the importance of daily devotions and how to use this book.

Overall Rating: Very Good.
