My Review:
Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.   All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.   

Over the last couple years I have had the opportunity to review some great children's bibles and stories.  This one keeps standing out the most!!! As soon as I opened the book I fell in love with the artwork by Jago!  I feel like his artwork truly is hard to express in words so I included a couple of them below...pictures of the picture truly don't capture the beauty.  




I think they way the illustrator uses shadows and colors just somehow create the perfect emotions for the devotionals.  

Since I have read several Bibles to my children this devotional is taking some of those stories an helping them apply the messages in a more personal way.   The devotionals are short but can provide several minutes of discussion for a family.  

The deluxe version comes with CD's to listen to each devotional.  I personally still prefer to read them with my children but I can totally use the CD's during play time for extra listening to them.  This devotional is a great tool to pair with the Jesus Storybook Bible.  You can read my review of the Jesus Storybook Bible  HERE.
