e've used three books from the One Year series now. The stories are entertaining, and there are some good lessons. However, my daughter frequently complains, "I've heard this story before", because we read it in another One Year devotional. C'mon Tyndale ... you can do better than that!Also, some of the stories are sub-par in their handling of Scripture. The texts are stretched to fit the application, or just used as proof-texts. Some days I have to pause to keep from either laughing or exploding. The exegesis is just not good in places. Cute stories don't compensate for sub-par handling of Scripture. Even kids deserve good exegesis.These books are easy to find in our area, and are easy to use, so we keep buying them; but the more I read them the less satisfied I am.
My 6 year old reads this devotional on her own. It is very appropriate and addresses the kinds of issues that this age group finds difficult. it has a memory verse and a thought for each day. it is an excellent way to get a young girl to develop a daily bible reading habit. I would definitely recommend this for 6 years +
