Book Review: The Circle Maker Devotions for Kids

Book Description

Based on the New York Times bestselling The Circle Maker and Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson, The Circle Maker Devotions for Kids encourages kids ages 8 and up to pray circles around their biggest dreams.
Boys and girls will learn the story of Honi the Circle Maker, who drew a circle in the sand and didn’t budge from it until God answered a seemingly impossible prayer. Kids are encouraged to be brave and bold in their prayers and dreams just like Honi, and to see how God answers prayers in big and small ways. Featuring 100 inspiring messages and a beautifully designed interior, this devotional makes a perfect gift for young readers.
My Review:
I was super excited about this review.  A couple years ago I read Mark Batterson's adult book and then also did the video series with our ladies group.   Hearing his testimonies was awesome and encouraging.   Since it was a couple years ago it was time to get in the habit of making my daily circles.   I even remember going on a walk and making a big circle like Mark did.  I also have the kids storybook about praying for the rain by making the circle.   That story was a good introduction to this devotional.   The legend of Honi the circle maker can increase anyone's faith and prayer life!   
This devotion for kids is a hard covered book.   Each day is two pages but it leaves you half a page with a big circle to write your prayers.  The daily devotion starts with scripture and then more information to go with it.  It also has other scripture references so you can look up more scripture as well.   Then it has a prayer on top of a blank writing space to circle your own prayers.  
This book is age appropriate for probably 8 years and older or when your child can write their own prayers.   We are reading this together as a family and we each add our prayers together.
