    I received God's Promises for Boys by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker. The book is 127 pages of pictures, poems, and scriptures. Each page deals with a different subject such as God's Promises About God's Grace or God's Promises When You are Worried. Each page has a short poem and several verses pertaining to the subject.It seems that the book is meant more as a gift book instead of a devotional appropriate for helping to exhort, instruct, and disciple your child. That, to me, was a bit disappointing. Anyone can go to the back of their Bible and find verses on a certain subject, but this didnt seem to appeal to a childs heart. Instead it is a cutesy concordance. However, this could be a great book to use as just that. If you want to teach your child how to use a concordance to look at what God says about certain subjects, this book with poetry and pictures would be very appealing to a child. Children need to be taught to search the scriptures to answer their questions instead of taking an adults word for it. If this is your goal, use this book as a tool, but teach your child to use his actual Bible to look up the verses in context.I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com bookreview bloggers program.

    Jack Countryman and Amy Parker present a small volume of verses in one of the latest entries in the "God's Promises" series: God's Promises for Boys.The formula is simple: create a list of scenarios that a boy might encounter, add relevant Bible verses, sprinkle with whimsical illustrations to attract the eye and speak to the heart. The result is a charming book that makes a nice gift for an older preschool or young elementary-aged boy.Each 2-page spread focuses on a different topic. For example:God's promises when you are happy, when you are worried, when you are angryGod's promises about the man you'll grow up to be, about being a good brother, about being a better friendI shared this book with my own preschool-aged boys, who looked at the pictures while I read selected verses that I thought they might grasp. Whether they understood or not, they sat thoughtfully looking at the pictures as we talked about God's promises when you're afraid and when you need to be a good sport. I like that this book celebrates and uplifts boys (God Needs Boys, Stay Strong, Wear His Armor) while teaching Biblical truths that apply as much to parents as to children.I plan to leave this on their bookshelf: to pick up when we need a discussion starter or an encouraging verse to help them navigate the sometimes rough seas of childhood.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.

    God's Promises for Boys was written by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker. My son and I have been reading this book at bedtime. He really enjoys the pictures on each page, and the little poems at the beginning of each "Promise".I also enjoy the poems and the pictures buy what I truly like about this book is the way it is divided up. It may be more appropriate for boys a little older than my three year old, I would say maybe first or second or third grade. The book is divided into seven sections, each section being broken down into a particular subject such as: "God's promises of help when... you don't feel important, or nothing is going right. Each promise has it's own poem and that poem is followed up by an excerpt from the bible to reinforce the promise. I think that for a young boy this could be a great reference. He can just flip through and find the appropriate section and find words of encouragement. Also a great reference for mothers and fathers as they encourage their children through the tough times that children face while growing up.I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it to any mom with a young boy.

    The book is broken down into seven sections of promises that are close to the hearts of little boys. Each of these sections is further broken down into two page topics that have a title, a catchy couplet, and three verses. Some of the topics my son got the most excited about were God Wants You To Wear Your Armor and God Wants You To Stay Strong. The front of the book has a gift page so you can mark giving the book to the special little boy in your life. The promise verses are all taken from the International Chiildrens Bible, so they are easy for children to understand. That differs a bit from what we use in school, so the ones Isaac has memorized were different, but he really liked reading them in this version. The couplets are cute and easy for children to remember as well. I has been hearing the one about putting on your armor a lot around here!
