    This review was written for The Beginner's Bible Kid-Sized Devotions.
    Bedtime is a special time. It's that time of night when I get to snuggle down with my children and just enjoy being with them. One day they won't be this small anymore and spending time with Mom just won't be cool anymore so I try to enjoy this time with them while I can. We always try to read a bedtime story and if there isn't enough time for a full story, we always try to make time to read a devotional with them.

    "The Beginner's Bible: Kid-Sized Devotions" is a devotional geared for children 6 and under. It takes your child through the Bible in a year. It starts in Genesis with the story of creation and moves through the bible, one devotion at a time. It ends with a devotion from Revelation, where it talks about accepting God into your heart.

    Each devotional is structured the same. It starts with a scripture. This is italicized so that your child can immediately tell that it is something "special". The scriptures are taken from the New International Reader's Version (NIrV).

    Then it has the day number.

    The Lesson is the next. Each lesson is about a paragraph long and tells a bible story in a simple manner that your little one can easily grasp. I would have loved to see a little more detail in the story, but my children loved them just the way they were.

    Each lesson is accompanied by a short summary. I used this summary as a discussion point with the kids. We would focus on this singular point for a few minutes each night and explore the different ways that God shows his love to us.

    The illustrations are bright and colourful. They immediately felt familiar to us. When I looked closer, I discovered that they are illustrated by Kelly Pulley. We have read another book that he wrote and illustrated called, "Treasury of Bible Stories". Mr. Pulley has a distinct illustrating style that is fun and full of joy. He has the ability to show the seriousness of some stories (think of Jesus on the Cross) and showing it in a child friendly way.

    Finally each devotional ends with a one-line prayer. This is great way to end the night with your child. The kids sometimes find it difficult to start their own bedtime prayers, so I read this line and let them repeat it and finish it with whatever is weighing on their mind and hearts.

    There are 365 devotions in this book, one for every day. We found that we weren't able to really skip from day to day like other devotionals we have. The book runs in sequence, and each story before gives a little needed background to the next. We did jump to the beginning of the Christmas story during the Christmas season. We just flipped through the devotions until we found a good spot to start.

    The end of the book has "The ABCs of Salvation". I have often seen this done from A to C, but "The Beginner's Bible: Kid-Sized Devotions" goes from A all the way to Y, the letter Z appears to be missing. I'm not sure if this is an oversight or intentional.

    "The Beginner's Bible: Kid-Sized Devotions" is a great books for early readers. My six year old loves that she is able to read some of it on her own, and my son loves the bright pictures that go with each devotion. Each devotion helps my children develop a stronger relationship with God.

    This review was written for The Beginner's Bible Kid-Sized Devotions.
    The Beginner's Bible Kid Sized Devotions by ZonderKidz Illustrated by Kelly Pulley is a great way to introduce your child to devotions in general. It starts off with the creation of the world in Genesis and ends in Revelations. Kid Sized Devotions takes a child through the Bible through simple language and stories right out of the Good Book to help them grasp more firmly who God is and the great people of the Bible. Each devotional starts off with a short scripture then goes on with a short description of the passage and what is being conveyed. They all have a beautiful picture depicting the passage, which helps with the visual aspect of learning in small children. They then end in a short prayer for the child to read or repeat.

    At the very end of the book it goes through the ABC's of salvation, but this version is A-Z. My son loves the bright pictures and they are just long enough to grasp information regarding the Bible and just short enough to keep his attention. It is recommended for children ages 6 and under and I think that age is very reasonable. It is a 365 page book, so a devotion for each day of the year.

    We thoroughly enjoy reading this every night before bedtime and it is a perfect way to end the day. The illustrations are bright and relevant to the devotional and they capture a childs attention. I find it easy to engage my little boy in learning more abou the Bible with the simplicity of the message. I am very happy with this devotional for children and definitey recommend to parents looking for a great way to introduce their small children to the Bible and a relationship with God.

    My two youngest daughters are really enjoying this book. My 7 year old loves that she can read it by herself and my 3 year old loves listening to the lessons. I love that these lessons are clear about the reality of sin, redemption, Jesus' sacrifice and the consequence of hell for unbelievers. It's not presented in a scary or intimidating way, but it does clearly communicate the reality of the Gospel.
