Overview From polliwogs to humpback whales to prickly porcupines, here are short stories that are perfect to read to even the youngest of children. Each two-page story tells about a different animal and its outstanding trait - from industrious ants and innovative sea otters to compassionate dolphins. Autho Pamela Kennedy has provided questions to discuss and a relevant Bible verse. Parents can use this book as an introduction to topics like truthfulness and kindness. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
Publishers Description This delightful devotional is perfect for bedtime, dinnertime, or anytime. Each short devotion includes a story about an animal illustrating its dominant trait as created by God. That trait is then related to a child. Questions at the end are fun for the young child to answer, such as picking out something in the picture, asking what the animal is doing, and asking what God wants us to do. Each devotional concludes with a short bible verse.

Holds My Son's Interest Feb 26, 2007
I find that a lot of devotional books for children do not hold my 5-year-old son's attention for very long. This book is an exception to that rule. He loves the stories about animals, pays close attention to the details, and understands how the themes relate to the Bible verses. I would highly recommend this and hope to see many more editions written in this style in the future.
Wonderful -- Must buy!!! Feb 19, 2007
My 5 year old and I both really enjoy this book!!! Great way of connecting the animal world and Gods plan together-- easy to understand and I love the questions at the end of each that tests a childs reading comprehension as well as gets meaningful conversation going between us. A must buy!!
Great Product - Great Service Feb 3, 2007
The books that I ordered came quickly and in pristine condition. Thank you
Our favorite nightly read! Jan 10, 2007
We all love this devotional book- especially my four year old. It is perfect! It has met him exactly at his 4 yr.old level and asks him ideal questions to help him think about God's plan for his life. We can't wait each day to read about the next animal. Tomorrow night is Grizzlies... I am thrilled there is another book in this series now! If not I wouldn't know what to do when we were done. I highly recommend this devo. book to anyone with young kiddos around!
Our children really like this devotional . . . Dec 1, 2005
We bought this book to do with our kids aged 5, 4, and 2. It is the perfect length devotional for them. They all get excited to read the next story when its time, and even the little guy (2) sits for the pictures and question time following. We try to talk a little more in depth about each topic and the questions are an excellent jumping-off point. The Bible verse is also great as the kids are getting old enough to memorize scripture too now. The only thing I wish it had was a little prayer for the kids at the end like I've seen in some other devotionals, but we just create our own which is just fine. I'm pleased to see there is a next book too because I was already wondering what we would do when we ran out of devotionals in this book! :)
