Blurb: Say and Pray devotions with your little ones today!
Your youngsters want to be just like you. How exciting! Help them grow in their faith and learn more about God’s love with Say & Pray Devotions.
Say & Pray Devotions features short devotions and lots of labeled illustrations so your little one can practice identifying objects and words on their own! This book is a great tool to start a devotional time with little ones, as it will help you teach them about God, and the labeled pictures will help start a life of faith.
This is a nice complement to the bestselling Say & Pray Bible.
My Take: There is so much to love and enjoy about this book. The pictures throughout are colorful and engaging. While my little one is currently too young to focus much on the images in the book, I am excited that this book will become even more valuable when he gets to the stage where we can point to the pictures and read the words identifying some of the images on the page.
Each pair of pages forms a small devotional to read, whether about the morning or night, about pets, about grandparents, and many other simple yet important topics. Each one of these devotionals has a short sentence about that topic, a small Bible verse to recite and/or memorize, and a simple prayer to pray related to the topic. And, as mentioned before, there are about 6-8 images one the pages that have words labeling them to point and read as well. All of this works out to a nice, short devotional to use with little ones of all ages. I can usually do 2-3 of these with my 4-month-old before he starts to get too squirmy, and I like having so many options to choose from that can tie in with parts of his day.
I would definitely recommend adding this book to your collection for little ones. This is a book that they can grow into, and still could get use as they are learning to read words and will give them short and simple verses to memorize. I have a feeling that this book will eventually get worn from use in our house!
