Spiritual Sunday: God's Little Princess Devotional Bible

I am always on the lookout for books that will teach my girls to love the Lord and others. Let's face it: it's hard to find good spiritually-focused books for kids. I've become a reviewer for Thomas Nelson, and hope to occasionally bring you books I have found through them (and others) that make the cut.

God's Little Princess Devotional Bible by Sheila Walsh

God's Little Princess Devotional Bible: Bible StorybookLike most children's Bibles, this book paraphrases selected stories starting in Genesis and ending in the New Testament (in this case, 1 John). Unlike most kids' Bibles, a fun application activity or devotional follows each story. These application portions vary greatly, from skits to scenarios to beauty tips (that always focus on becoming beautiful inside and out). Clipart and illustrations of Walsh's Little Princess character decorate the pages throughout.

I like the variety of activities in this Bible, which allows me to pick and choose what I want to do with my daughter. The skits, for example, are fairly useless for early and pre-readers,  and some of the suggested activities - like having your child polish your silver - are laughable. Yet there are enough excellent ideas to make me excited about reading this with E. The writing is appropriate for young girls and avoids speaking down to them while encouraging them to love God unashamedly and follow Him without fear... exactly what God's word should do for us all.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
