Reviews - What do customers think about One Year Did You Know Devotions V1?
The One Year Did You Know Devotions 2 Feb 7, 2010
What bird uses a spear to catch its dinner? What miniature toy did almost every boy wish for in the 1950's? Why did people put Bubble Wrap on their walls?
Not sure what these answers are? Well, I wasn't either until I began using The One Year Did You Know Devotions 2, written by Nancy S. Hill, during devotion time with my boys. Following the same format as the One Year Bible, The One Year Did You Know Devotions 2 has a kid friendly devotion for every day of the year. Each day has its own page and begins with an interesting trivia question. In addition to explaining the answer to the question, Bible verses and applications/devotions are included.
This book is geared to children ages 6 - 10. I think the topics and devotions are very well targeted for that age range. I am reading these daily devotions with my two youngest boys, ages 6 and 9. They have been very interested and engaged in trying to `figure out the answer' to the trivia question before I can read it to them. But, more importantly, the Biblical lessons are sticking in ways that I would not have predicted. I'm sure this book would work great for girls, but the entries are very boy-friendly as well. Even my 13 year old has shown interest in reading the entries on his own.
I like this book - a lot. I plan to continue using it with my children throughout the year. By the way, the answers to the initial questions are woodpecker finch, electric toy train set, and some thought it was a modern looking wallpaper that would be easy to clean. Pretty neat, huh?

New Twist on Kid's Devotions Feb 1, 2010
Why do you get thirsty? Why is it easier to walk than stand still? How does a sponge hold so much water with all those holes? What's the largest living thing on earth? Why do we blink?
Any question that a child may have, will probably be in the Did You Know Devotions 2? written by Nancy S. Hill. It's a fun book that can be read at any point, without having to rely on the the previous days reading to make sense.
Each day has a new question, with the answer. Then it goes further. It draws in a verse, that was written under the title, and shows how the trivia presented can tie in to a child's spiritual life. As is written on the Tyndale site:
Kids ages 6-10 love trivia, and this devotional is chock-full of interesting and sometimes silly facts. Each fact is explained briefly; the theme of the fact is then used to share a biblical truth as well as a Bible verse. The Bible message and verses tie directly to the theme of the facts, providing a better opportunity for kids to remember and apply the biblical message. What car was the first car Henry Ford built? Why do we say o'clock? Which American candy was named after someone's daughter? Find the answers to these questions and learn a biblical lesson by reading The One Year Did You Know Devotions 2.
For families that have not yet begun the family tradition of daily devotions or for those that have, but are looking for something new, this Devotional book is a great addition to any family library.
Did you know Devotional 2 Dec 22, 2009
I recently received a devotional for Kids from Tyndale Kids to review.
this book has 365 days of Trivia, Memory versus and fun devotions that are perfect for all ages of kids.
I have 4 kids and the older 3 are perfect ages for this and they range from 3 to 7.
Each day starts with a question: "Are those birds really Humming?" Then a verse that fits the question and the half a page devotional.
These are fun and enjoyable for the kids plus SHORT so that it engages them and then finishes before losing their attention!
Pick it up at your Local Family Christian Stores.
Did YOU Know . . . Dec 21, 2009
This book might just be the one for the 9-12 year old in your life. Kids love trivia, and this book has it, wrapped all around Scripture!
Here are some titles from this book:
What can a snake's teeth tell you? What was the first book ever printed? What was one of the first video games? Why was Alka-Seltzer Invented? How many colors can we see?
Written by a former school teacher, Nancy S. Hill, The One Year Did You Know Devotions 2 has 365 days of trivia, Scripture and memory verses, geared for ages 6-10, (but I think the older kids will like it as well). This book would work great for family devotions, giving great discussion starters, since each devotional is only one page long.
This book was provided for review by Tyndale House Publishers and this review expresses my honest opinion.
Nothing Trivial About this Devotional Dec 18, 2009
I don't like devotionals. They are tedious, mundane, and generally not in depth enough for me; however, the author, Nancy Hill, has created a dynamic and entertaining book for kids of all ages, even me.
When my daughter (age 7) first picked it up, she was sorely disappointed when we told her she was limited to reading one per day. This has really become her book which she uses in her reading lessons and to read to her brother (age 5) daily. The 'did you know' parts are quite funny at times and causes daily rounds of laughter and delight from my children. They are learning, on their level, interesting facts and to connect even the silly things in their life to the things of God. It provides fodder for our conversations as well, in drawing their actions to more godly actions. Sometimes, parents need help to counter many of the perverse things in this world, and books like this help. Devotionals like this help children from a very early age to see the relevance of God in their own life.
And the best thing? It doesn't make the bible trivial.
The structure is this: On each day, a verse is given, a very interesting factoid is told, and then the simply and yet powerful devotional. It sneaks up on the reader and isn't overly dogmatic.
I would highly recommend this book for those of you with children, grandchildren, or who know a child who could use this to develop not only their reading level, but their interest in a variety of things as well as introducing them to daily bible reading.
