A Charming Book for Preschoolers

Do you remember the "Care Bears?" They were adorable little bears on Television. The illustrations were by Elena Kucharik. She is extremely talented and knows how to bring joy and happiness through her art. Her latest project is, "The One Year Devotions for Preschoolers 2." Elena has done the illustrations. The accompanying text was written by Carla Barnhill. The combination is a charming book for children.

There are 365 entries. One for each day of the year. It is a thick book with good quality pages. The colorful artwork made me smile again and again. Each entry includes a short verse (not exclusively KJV), simple devotion, and a heartwarming rhyme. Here is an example from August 6th:

"When someone is mean, I pray that I'll find
Love in my heart and strength to be kind."

You could easily entertain a small child by just looking at the pictures. They are endearing, precious and heartwarming. There are 365 different illustrations and they are all delightful.

*I received this book for free, from Tyndale House, for the purpose of sharing my opinion.*
