Each of the fifty-plus devotionals contains a brief narrative-style lesson and illustration that hammer home the main point. A math or word game follows, then a behavior checklist, and a group of applicable Scripture verses and quotes. As an adult, I found the latter section to be most interesting and beneficial. However, I suspect a young boy might prefer the story and games. By including all of these, O'Neal successfully balances the book and broadens its appeal.
Depending on age and reading experience, parents might expect a child to read the book on his own, or with the aid of the father (remember, No Girls Allowed). I am certain God can speak to a young heart through the words of these devotionals, for "The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him" (Ps. 103:13). O'Neal, with master's degrees in both counseling and communication as well as a doctorate in strategic leadership, certainly qualifies as an effective conduit for the gospel.
The book's strengths lie in its content's relevance to boys and its practical advice about how to live out biblical principles. Because of its solid foundation in the Scriptures and personable attitude, I think it can be nothing but a positive influence on its audience. I recommend it for boys ages 6 to 11.

I have my son complete daily devotions so that it becomes a habit that he will have for the rest of his life. This book was supposed to be the one he did nightly. After a month, he was all done! Praise God I had bought him 2 different devos...he enjoyed this book but he needed more. He LOVES Superheros and the title No Girls Allowed is perfect!!

Wendy Winans5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for 11 yr old boysAugust 18, 2011Wendy WinansQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased this book for our 11 yr old's birthday. He loved it so much he started reading and doing the work book section immediately with all his buddies that were over for his birthday.
It is full of good, age appropriate godly advice, written with boys in mind.
Erin M.5 Stars Out Of 5September 30, 2010Erin M.I recently received the book No Girls Allowed: Devotions for Boys from Tyndale for review. I think the book would be very appealing for young boys. I believe it is aimed at boys over the age of 6, but I think it's even appropriate for younger boys. My son is 4 and he can relate to the characters such as Batman and Spiderman and the choices they make. I think the authors have done a great job of understanding the characters young boys like to read about. Most people wouldn't think to ask "What would spiderman do" and then compare that to "What would Jesus do?" What a way to grab boys' attention! The devotional also has occassional games, word puzzles, and word searches for older boys. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has boys ages 5-8 years old!
