AmyL4 Stars Out Of 5Big and Little Coloring DevotionalNovember 13, 2017AmyLQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This devotional is a great way for mom and child to share some time together focusing on scripture! My daughter is 3 and is definitely not the right target age for this book. I think it would be perfect for an older elementary child who can sit for an extended period of time (I think a great time to do this would be on a mother/child date for hot chocolate or a meal where you're sitting across from one another).
I do wish there was a question prompt to further the conversation with your child. The devotionals are short little thoughts on the verse and will be easily translated towards any child.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great for Quality time with your kidsNovember 8, 2017Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It was so cool to read about how this coloring/devotional came about. A mom with an idea, an artist with a prayer, and God at work!
I am so excited to use this with my daughter who constantly demands mommy attention and hands on activities! This is the coolest. We can color with the book laid flat - at the same time. The Bible verse on one side coincides with the short devotional on the
opposite page. One page is a bit more simply done, so the younger ones can color, while the other has more detail to be filled in. There are some truly beautiful verse and illustrations in this book. The pages are relatively thick so the color shouldn't bleed through, although my recommendation is colored pencils.
My daughter is ten, and I think that is the perfect age for this book. Maybe a little younger if they are artistic or love to color. This book could truly be something to treasure for years to come. I was impressed to see if even included one of my favorite verses: For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21. Includes over 50 double-sided devotionals.
I received this book courtesy of B&H Bloggers and Lifeway. I was not asked or required to give it a positive review. All opinions are my own.
PollyGirlTexasAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for my kids and me!November 1, 2017PollyGirlTexasAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My youngest son (who is 10) loves to color. It is so hard to find a coloring book that a 10 year old boy would enjoy coloring. So I was thrilled when I received the Big and Little Coloring Devotional. There are so many pages inside this coloring book that are perfect for a boy!
This coloring book is made so that the two people can color at the same time. There is a devotional on one page and a Bible verse on the other page. The page with the devotional is the slightly more intricate page while the simpler page has the Bible verse. This a fun way to have a devotional time with your child, learn a verse and color together at the same time. It makes learning the Bible so much more fun and easier.
Once my son colors the more boyish pages my daughter is ready to color the more girly pages. I am enjoying this time I spend with my kids and with Gods Word and I know my kids are too.
I was also pleased that different kinds of coloring pencils and techniques worked well in this coloring book. We tried out three different types of coloring pencils and I also used the Gamsol blending technique and our pages turned out beautiful!
This book would make a wonderful gift!
Jolene5 Stars Out Of 5My five year old and I enjoyed it!October 21, 2017JoleneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Big and Little Coloring Devotional, written by Rachel C. Swanson and illustrated by Jacy Corral, is my first experience with a coloring book designed for sharing between parent and child. I love that the book marries an enjoyable childhood activity with a calming adult activity. Not only does it set the stage for some quality time, but it inserts Scriptures and spiritual truths that mom and child can discuss while they color.
My five year old daughter and I sat down this afternoon to test out the new coloring book. The pages are set so that mom and child can sit opposite each other and the child can work on one page while mom does the other. Well, we decided we wanted to share a page and work together. After about thirty minutes of us both coloring, we nearly completed the page. She said the background should be colored in, but she was tired of coloring. (And truthfully, thirty minutes was plenty for me too.) I was beyond pleased with the experience. We talked, we colored, we made up stories, we spent time together. There were smiles, thoughts, and a bright coloring page to remind us of it all.
Of course, I can not leave out my two year old daughter who also likes to color and it occurred to me that this would be a great morning activity since she gets usually gets up at least an hour earlier than her older sister. Entertaining my young child while starting the day with a relaxing activity.... I'm looking forward to trying that out tomorrow morning.
