Reviews - What do customers think about My Happy Heart Books (3 Books)?

My kids like them, but I'm unimpressed.  Mar 3, 2009
This boxed set of 3 "Touch-and-Feel" board books was written by Victoria Osteen, wife of religious celebrity Joel Osteen. All three books are illustrated by Betsy Day. Some pages feature textures such as embossing, glitter and celophane. Others incorporate lift-the-flaps into the colorful scenes.

- "Hooray For Today!" follows a child throughout his daily activities. From waking to his mother's kiss, breakfast, then playing with daddy and friends to naptime, bathtime and bedtime, he offers thanks to God. Each two-page spread ends the same way, with a grateful prayer for the activity featured on those pages: "Thank You, God! Hooray! Hooray! Thank You for fun times today!"

- "Hooray for Wonderful Me!" focuses on the different attributes of children. Each two-page spread emphasizes a different skill or gift God gives us. "Thank You, God! Hooray! Hooray! You help me to be kind each day."

- "Hooray for my Family!" highlights various members of family and how each is special and important. The child narrator gives thanks for her mommy, daddy, sister, brother, grandparents, pets and aunt and uncle. "Thank You, God, for family! I love my sis and she loves me ... My brother is so good to me!

WHAT I LIKE: They're sweet books with a great size (8 x 8"). The illustrations are very nice: cute, but not cutesy. My kids love these books. I appreciate the focus on prayer. It's not just about being thankful, but about thanking God.

WHAT I DISLIKE: The rhyme and meter are off in several places, making it difficult to read aloud. (Were the author an unknown instead of an Osteen, I doubt the publisher would have accepted it.) In spite of being "Touch-and-Feel" books, they don't offer much variety in textures. While some pages do feature a rough, glittery sand or a hairy patch of dog fur, most only give reflective surfaces or a high gloss finish. Others have flaps to lift, but no new textures to feel.

Overall Rating: Good.

Tanya - Christian Children's Book Review
Three Great Board Books to Help Your Child Learn to Lead a Thankful, Blessed, Godly Life  Feb 25, 2009
Buy and read this book to all the preschool children you know!

When my youngsters were young, touch-and-feel board books were their favorites for reading time! They touched and felt so enthusiastically that each book had to be replaced at least once. I can still see my daughter's little finger touching the "mirrors" in those books with wonder.

Ms. Victoria Osteen has done Christian parents a great service by writing these books by using the power of touch-and-feel appeal to model how good Christians conduct their day. Let me explain.

In Hooray for Today! the right-hand pages contain expressions of continuing thanks to God for a child's environment and family. Here are a few examples:

"Thank you God!
Hooray! Hooray!
Thank you for sunshine today!"

"Thank you God!
Hooray! Hooray!
Thank you for my food today!"

"Thank you God!
Hooray! Hooray!
Thank you for my daddy today!"

In Hooray for Wonderful Me! are similar expressions with the first two lines being the same, but the subjects shifting to things about a child to be thankful for such as:

"Thank you God!
Hooray! Hooray!
You help me to be kind each day."

In Hooray for My Family! the theme of giving thanks is connected to things that family members do for a child such as:

"Thank you God!
Hooray! Hooray!
My mommy takes good care of me!"

I think it's terrific that children can learn from these books to be grateful for what they have and to continually thank God for those things. To me, it was like having Joel and Victoria Osteen conduct a seminar for me in how to be a good Christian parent by teaching my child how to think about what God does.

The illustrations by Ms. Betsy Day are gorgeous, properly expressing the kind of Christian joy that Salvation can bring. The touch-and-feel aspects are brilliantly done. There are my daughter's favorite (mirrors), glitter-raised letters and sections, soft material to touch (fabric, hair, and "fur"), sparkling sections (the sun), and doors and windows and clouds and paintings to open (with different scenes behind them). Sometimes the touch-and-feel features are obvious and sometimes they are subtle. Your child will love searching out the subtle ones. The second book also contains the alphabet.

With these models of good Christian living, your family will live closer to Him. What could be better?

May God bless you, your family, and all you do in the name of Jesus!

Brava, Ms. Osteen!

Brava, Ms. Day!
