I have read this with my 2 daughters twice when they were 9 and 10, both times we thouroughly enjoyed it. Although some of the stories were difficult to read due to the emotional content, it was a great tool to teach compassion to my daughters who lead a very sheltered homeschooled life. We were able to glean wisdom from every story. I loved the Checkup Time (personal reflection), things to do, Bible Verses & Quotes. My daughters & I all wish there were a second one. I grew in my walk from reading this with them, because we all need to be reminded of the basics...Love one Another & God is Always with us. Great Book!
I gave this to our middle school age girls so that they would be able to have daily devotions. The feedback so far has been that the girls have really liked the readings and feel good about reading. They say that the stories are relevant.
