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)"

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!

This one's hit or miss. There are several devotions that are decent, but it's not consistent. If you're looking for a biblically based devotional for your preschooler, this is *not* it. You'll be skipping parts or altering what the author wrote because she occasionally espouses a works-based view of salvation. In other words, you need to do something for God to respond favorably towards you. This isn't the God of the Bible. If you're looking for a devotional that teaches you that you can save yourself with good works - this is the one for you, but that is not Christianity - it's religion. The one thing that sets Christianity apart from *all* other religions is that Jesus did the ultimate righteous deed of dying on the cross for our sins so that we wouldn't have to "work" for salvation, as Crystal Bowman espouses at times. Ephesians 2:8,9- "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not of your own doing; it is the gift of God, not the result of works, so that no one may boast."

Cons:
-Inconsistent theology throughout devotional
-Espouses works-based theology which is unbiblical and unchristian
-Encourages the view that you need to be good for God to help you or love you or be happy with you
-"The more you read the Bible and pray, the more God will help you." - no God will help you if you call out to Him, period...not if you read your Bible more and pray more.
-"But God doesn't want us to worry about riches. Being a good person is more important." -Being a good person is more important? Actually, having a relationship with God is *most* important. Being a good person isn't the goal. Knowing and loving God is the goal. Loving others is a natural outflow of knowing and loving God.

Pros:
-Nice pictures
-Cute, rhyming prayers
-Dated so you know where you left off

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.
