I wrote the review below for this book over five years ago. My boys loved the book then, and we occassionally pull it out to go over beloved tales. The book is wonderful. We have since added its sequel to our collection. More than anything, it enabled us to establish a family devotional time when the boys were school-aged. That is priceless. This is an excellent book if this is what you are trying to develop. The stories are well written, current, and hold the interest of the listener.I highly recommend the book for the values it instills,as well as for the ambiance it provides."I purchased this book 'sight unseen'... some months ago. I was interested in adding some spiritual content to the nightly reading sessions that I have with my two sons (ages 7 and 10.) I had originally intended to merely 'tack on' the daily page-long devotional to the end of our sessions. I found, however, that my boys are so eager for this type of instruction, and the little stories are so compelling, insightful, and contemporary, that our 1/2-hour long sessions have been converted completely to the one page, its corresponding scripture verse, and the 'How about you...' discussion questions provided. The kids actually remind me if I forget, and beg me to read them the night's selection when I try to defer if I claim I'm too tired!"
