God's Promises for Girls: Review
I have enjoyed using my Bible Promise book and other topical scripture books over the years, so when I saw that there was a similar book concept for kids, I knew I wanted to check it out.
What I thought:
I originally thought we would use God's Promises for Girls as a reference when certain situations occurred, but I found that it was difficult to locate where to find the topic in the book quickly without skimming through the table of contents. This book is divided into sections such as God's Promises When, God's Promises About, God Want You To, etc, not topically or by keyword, so it takes a little getting used to (at least for me.) After showing my daughter, I found out exactly how we would use the book.
My 8yr. old daughter was excited to find out that this book was for her. We sat down and paged through the book together. We both thought the graphics were very cute and the book seemed sturdy. We read a couple of the entries, and I was surprised at the conversation opportunities it opened up between my daughter and I. I loved that we were reminded what God said about that particular topic too. I plan to continue using this book as a short devotional to read with my daughter before bed. This book would be even more valuable to me if it were in the translation we normally memorize our Bible verses, but it still is a wonderful tool that we will use.
I think God's Promises for Girls would make a great gift book for girls ages 8-11. It's a perfect way to teach young girls exactly what God says about situations and topics relevant in their lives.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
