Kiddy Korner Review: God's Promises for Girls

Title: God's Promises for Girls
By: Jack Countryman & Amy Parker
Genre: Christian Childrens Book
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Books
BookWhisperer Rating:

Book Description:
An easy way to help young girls see God’s promises and how they can rely on His love in their daily lives.

The promise verses in this book are selected from the best-selling International Children’s Bible® to offer comfort and encouragement when a girl is feeling afraid, lonely, worried, angry, dissatisfied, discouraged, sad, rebellious, impatient, or sick . . . and when they need reassurance of God’s protection, love, forgiveness, help . . . and that He listens when they pray. It’s a great way for children to hide God’s Word in their hearts.

Very useful tool in teaching children about the right and wrong in God's Eyes. This small book carries a huge amount of information that is specifically written for young children to grasp and understand the basic and most important concept that God is always there for us, and always loves us. I loved the structure of the book portraying questions such as: are there times you feel lonely, or are there times you really want something that you have been told no. Each question is followed up with scripture that is paraphased into sentences or paragraphs that young children can easily understand. It is easy to tell this book was directed toward young girls. I think that the authors beautifully wrote this book to cover very important lessons that are problems spot with most young girls. As a one time read I don't feel that the significance of the book will be truely appreciated. This should be a repetative reader; with reduance I think this book could easily become a life handbook for our young readers. God Promises is a amazing books with illustrations and lessons that children can relate to themselves. I hope to also have a look at God Promises for Boys; these books in my eyes are just truely extraordinary. I love that even the literary world is beginning to understand the impact and importance for religion in children's lives.
