REVIEW:
As I read each of the devotions in this book, I felt uplifted by the author's positive words, his relevant anecdotes from life, the scripture he chose for each devotion, the Bible stories he shared to illustrate the theme of the devotion, and the prayer or other tip he included at the end of each devotion.
 
The best elements of this book are the simplicity and candor with which these lessons and thoughts are shared with children ages 6 to 10. The lessons focus on what concerns them, wherever they are at in the life and spiritual walk with God.
 
As to be expected, many of the chapters deal with being bullied, feeling alone, feeling different, feeling abandoned, and worrying about things that are out of their control. I was struck by how many of these issues are concerns for teens and adults, too.
 
The devotions are reassuring, and I believe they will help youngsters realize they are not that different from everyone else in what they are feeling. More importantly, they will come to realize that they are created in God's image and that God loves them unconditionally.
 
The practical side of these devotions is that each one has a theme, a short scripture, a narrative about the theme which may include anecdotes from real life or the Bible, and an 'action' step  (Pray, Remember, or It's Your Turn) at the end of the day's lesson.
 
The book is formatted in a user-friendly manner with clear graphics and a consistent layout for each day's devotion. The hardcover style will stand up to the wear and tear a child who uses this book on a regular basis will give it. The book launches with 'A Letter From Max'--a heartfelt, warm, friendly note from the author to welcome readers to the book.
 
Highly-recommended to parents, grandparents, church libraries, youth group leaders, Sunday school teachers, and adults who wish to be uplifted by the positivity presented in this book.
 
I received a print copy of this book from the publisher through JustRead Publicity Tours. All of my opinions and thoughts shared here are solely my own.
