Book Review: "Bible Gems to Remember" Illustrated Bible


About the book: 

Scripture is filled with “gemstones”—concise statements of five words or less that hold great value, meaning, and power. Bible Gems to Remember Illustrated Bible, written by Robin Schmitt and illustrated by Kris Aro McLeod, takes children through 52 stories from the Bible, each featuring a powerful gem from Scripture to memorize.

God can accomplish amazing things with just a few words. Imagine what he could do in the heart of a child who memorizes and meditates on these short “gems” of wisdom from the Bible.




Bible Gems to Remember Illustrated Bible:
-Offers 52 stories from the Bible, one for each week of the year, enhanced with beautiful gemstone photos that encourage children to memorize Scripture
-Includes more related gems to ponder at the end of each Bible story above and beyond the featured gemstone verse
-Is creatively based on Scripture “gemstones” that are concise statements of five words or less that hold great value, meaning, and power
-Features a gorgeous cover


My Review:
My children and I are loving the easy memory verse for each story with some pretty pictures of gems on the page!  Each of the verses is so short we all cam memorize it on the spot as we recite it together a couple of times.  
There are 52 Bible Stories in this children's picture bible.  So you can use this book one day a week for the 52 weeks in the year or like us just read it daily until you finish it.  
My favorite feature of this bible is the push for memorizing.   I will admit I am not always very good at taking time to do so but with this they are super easy to do!  If you are like me you can agree that even the 5 words or less of memorize scripture can do mighty and amazing things in our lives!   

A few Gems;
Job 19:25- My redeemer lives
Galatians 5:13 Serve one another
1 John 1:7 Walk in the light.
Matthew 13:43 The righteous will shine
Romans 10:9 Jesus is Lord
Psalm 121:5 The Lord watches over you

See easy and powerful!   :) 

Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

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!
