Rhe's Bookshelf - My Mama and Me *giveaway*

Time or another Rhe's Bookshelf review.  This time, I am happy to give you all a chance to win a copy of the
book yourself.   Good luck.

take a look inside on Amazon!


Summary:

A companion book to My Grandma and Me, this book is specifically written for mother and child. My Mama and Me is designed around four questions: Can You Tell Me about God? Can You Tell Me about Jesus? What Does God Think about Me? How Can I Show God I Love Him?

Through 25 rhyming devotions and fun activities, Mom can answer these questions for the curious little one. It’s a great way to introduce kids to faith at an early age yet in an age-appropriate and understandable manner. Each devotion also includes a short Bible verse and a prayer that mother and child can recite together. Some of the activities include creating a card, making a heart wreath, and singing—all of the activities are directly related to the theme for the devotion. These devotions translate to hours of meaningful, faith-filled fun.

The book ends with a touching prayer every mother will want to pray for her children.

What I Thought:

 I have a couple different devotions that I've used with the kids.  I prefer ones that are interactive.  My kids seem to learn, engaged and remember better when there is an activity associated with whatever it is we are talking about.  Plus it usually gets a moving, or having a discussion for longer.  This particular devotion, beautifully illustrated by the way, is perfect for smaller children, probably about 3 I would say.  The devotions are short enough that your smaller children could sit and read and stay engaged as well.

The devotions are set up simply: Bible Verse, devotion (something that the children learn - God keeps us safe, God gives us what we need, God is your friend), prayer and an activity.  The activities range from simply going outside and looking for things, while some are more artsy.

4 out of 5 stars

This is a great devotional for very young children.  While I'm sure older children (my 5 and 7 year old included) wold enjoy this, I prefer a little more in-depth study, and one where they would sit for just a smidge longer.  The illustrations are sweet and this would make a great gift and/or heirloom.

  1. Thank you, Rheanna, for this beautiful review. It is my prayer that moms and children will grow closer to each other and closer to God as they share this book.

    You are a blessing!

  3. How sweet is this... I might have to check it out. The kids and I have been reading a chapter a day in the children's Bible, but an actual devotional would be nice.

    Keep up the good work Rhe!
