My Review:
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine. 

I would have never thought to connect the fruits of the spirit with animals.   It truly gives children a better picture and understanding of the fruits of the spirit by relating it to a dog and the dogs behavior.   The dogs are all very adorable which makes the pictures pop out and keep the attention of many age groups!  Reading this story will allow parents to discuss each fruit of the spirit in a more personal way with using a humble heart in admitting areas in which we as parents need to grow too.   My kids and I set some goals we each are trying to work on one of the fruits of the spirit this week!  :)   I imagine we will have to go to this book often this week to keep it all fresh in our heads.  
The only thing I do wish would be edited in this book is capitalizing "he" in the book.   When ever we are talking about God I have been taught and want to teach my children that if the "he" is God it should be "He!"  I remember a few years back when I did not but a capital h on it and I had a close friend explain it to me and I am now hooked on making sure I capitalize it!  Overall this book is great and if you are trying to work on those fruits of the spirit this is a great book to add to your list when teaching it!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. 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! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
