Our family has the Jesus Storybook bible and we love it. The pictures from Jago and the beautiful narratives from Sally Lloyd-Jones are works of art in their own right. Well now the two of them have teamed up again to bring you "Thoughts that make your heart sing."
Basically it's a devotional for young kids, and I would say kids between 6-9 years of age. At first glance, the drawings might "look" like it might be appropriate for younger kids, but Sally Lloyd-Jones uses a lot of flowery and descriptive words (almost poetic) that would be lost on a younger child.
The book starts off much like the Bible does with the stories of creation and makes its way through the scriptures and at over 200 pages there is a devotional for over 70 readings!
Each reading is a page accompanied by a stunning picture - the reading is typically a question about faith or about how we see life and it's shortly followed by a passage of scripture.
This book is a wonderful read, sure to be appreciated by parents as well as their kids. In a world where wholesome Christian literature is needed - this book comes as a breathtaking surprise.
The initiation leather binding is what Zondervan calls "Italian Duo-tone" and it pretty much is a "leather-look" made from rubber and paper. It feels and looks like leather, but it's not made from animal products.

Beautiful in every way
IÃ¢ÂÂm really really excited about this book!
"From Jago and Sally Lloyd-Jones, the creators of the bestselling Jesus Storybook Bible, comes this gorgeous and innovative collection of 101 simple-yet- profound thoughts on faith. Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing shares profound spiritual truths from the Bible told in a conversational toneÃ¢ÂÂdrawing insights from creation, history, science, the writings of great thinkers and preachers and writers, and moreÃ¢ÂÂto turn the readerÃ¢ÂÂs eyes toward the God who loves them with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love. Perfect for family devotions, bedtime, story time, or even as a companion to The Jesus Storybook Bible, this accessible yet theologically rich book reveals biblical truth in word and image-all working together and designed to do one thing: to make the readerÃ¢ÂÂs heart sing."
Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing is a beautifully illustrated and written collection for children about spiritual/biblical truths and faith. When I worked with the childrenÃ¢ÂÂs Sunday School at my church, I loved The Storybook Bible (which is a best seller) we used and when I found out about this newest collaboration between Sally Lloyd-Jones and artist Jago, I knew it would be a success. And itÃ¢ÂÂs awesome! Like I want one for myself awesome. I canÃ¢ÂÂt wait for my nieces to be old enough to enjoy both!
If you have little ones and are looking for a book to use in your young oneÃ¢ÂÂs growing faith, I definitely recommend this one!
