God's Promises for Boys - book review

God's Promises for Boys by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker, Illustrated by Richard Watson.

This is a children's inspirational/devotional type book written mainly for boys. It covers a variety of topics that kids deal with every day. Each topic spans two pages and includes a short poem and three to four verses. I would say this book is most appropriate for school-aged children.

I don't have any boys, so I started reading this book to my daughters each night as our devotional. After a few pages, I told them that was enough for one night. My older daughter asked if she could continue reading on her won. She understood the message and liked the way it was presented. She loves the pictures and thinks they show what the verses talk about. I think this book presents a strong spiritual message because it is infused with scripture. Though we (my daugher and I) would recommend it to boys as some topics are written specifically for them, but girls (like my daughter) might enjoy it too as most of the themes relate to things all kids deal with.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com http://BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.
