My Bible Adventure is a great way to introduce children to the concept of devotionals. This book is a weekly devotional for children targeted towards age 8 and up. Each week, 52 total, introduces scripture from the Bible, the concept/topic that goes along with it, illustrations, a “Today’s Adventure” page and a “Pray With Me” page. For example, Week 1 is entitled “God Made Everything” and presents Genesis 1:1-15. The entire scripture is printed in the book, followed by the “Today’s Adventure” page, which is the equivalent to an adult”s devotional page, discussing the scripture presented. Following this is the “Pray With Me” page which presents a short pray, followed by a “Take It With You” passage helping children further connect the scripture discussed with their own lives. As the synopsis describes, each weekly devotional is written by someone different, including pastors and children’s ministers.
Overall I think this is a great book to introduce children to the concept of devotionals and I think that the weekly devotional is a good place to start. I think that this is marketed towards the right age range, as it does still contain colorful illustrations along with the text. This would be great for personal use, as well as in a Children in Worship or Sunday School setting.
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy of this book.
