"The Circle Maker for Kids" Review


Synopsis:
The Circle Maker for Kids, written by New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson and illustrated by Antonio Caparo, reveals the true legend of Honi the circle maker, a man whose bold prayer for rain saved a generation.
Book Description:
“One prayer can change everything.”
A terrible drought had hit the land. Gardens died, rivers ran dry; the Israelites had one last hope: Honi the Rainmaker. So they called upon him to pray, and Honi did something strange … something bold.
Would God send the rains and save the people?
Basing this story on his adult bestseller The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson shares the ancient Jewish legend of Honi the Rainmaker with children to teach them about the power of prayer.
My Review:
One aspect I want to teach my children and the children in my church is the power of their prayers.  This book is a great introduction to the power of prayer. 
I like how the story starts out by the towns people only trusting the prayers of this one person but by the end of the story people realized their prayers will be heard and answered too. 
The message is fantastic and the artwork is amazing.  I love the bright and bold colors from the sun and rain on each page.  
Thanks Zondervan and author Mark Batterson and illustrator Antonio Javier Caparo for creating a spectacular book with a meaningful message for our kids. The new challenge for parents is to start to model a good prayer life.   
I will leave you wondering why circles are a part of the title and story.  This story will be available August 6th, 2013 and retails for $15.99 for hard cover.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
