Hugs & Kisses, God from Kids Around the World *Review*

Hug's & Kisses God Around the World

Following the success of her previous multicultural children's book Thank You, God, Nolan again captures the spirit of god's grace on every color splashed page.  With her signature rhythmic text, Nolan has an international lesson: recognize life's every day delights as gifts from God.  Her examples include everything from yummy pancakes and daisies on a hill to pink skies and fireflies.

The vibrant illustrations of artist Miki Sakamoto enhance the spirit of Nolan's story, and a special surprise awaits young readers behind lift-able flaps on every eye catching page as children eagerly count their blessings.

My Review
It is always fun to learn a something from other cultures and this book helps with that.  :)  Not only does it share a bit a bit about culture but it reminds of us several ways we can show God's love or give God Glory.  I do not have many books that have flips and my daughter has a fun time on each page flipping the flap to read it.  :)

This story is a great book to add to your collection.  It is always nice to have a book that is encouraging the principles, morals, and values that we learn from the word of God, so any book to help remind our children is awesome.  

This would make a wonderful gift for any expecting parent, child, Sunday school teacher, or home school family.  :)

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
