Disclosure: Mama Buzz and reviewers, received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.

Jeremiah is at the age where he is starting to ask more questions about God. I love that he is wanting to know more and "figure it all out."

The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers 2 has been a wonderful starting point for these discussion for us. Each day has a Bible verse, a short devotional and a cute rhyming saying to help sum up the lesson. Here is an example from today...

January 4 - Fantastic You

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31, NIV

Have you ever felt like nobody likes you? We all have days when we feel ignored or picked on or left out. But do you know who thinks you're amazing every single minute of every single day? God does!...

When God looks at me, He likes what He sees.

Isn't that precious? This devotions book is geared at children ages 3 to 6. Each devotion is short - only one page, so no attention span problems here! And the illustrations are adorable!

I asked Jeremiah what he thought of this book and he said, "It's good!" So I asked him why he liked it. His response?

"It's cool."

Quite the endorsement from a 3 1/2 year old!

As for my recommendation: I think this is wonderful daily reading material with your preschooler. It is WELL worth the $14.99 price tag to have these meaningful, spiritual moments with your little ones!

Thank you to Tyndale for providing this book! Our family loves it!

  1. I had a chance to review this and my youngest promptly laid claim to the book and even goes to bed with it; It's a very cute and amazing devotional book to help encourage preschoolers to start a daily quiet time with our Father.

    The illustrations are amazing and even encourages the kids to use as story starters for schooltime as we talk about what the kids in the illustrations are doing and how does it relate to what we just read.

    I second your review; This is highly recommended to anyone who has preschoolers and makes for a great gift.
