Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids by Sarah Young

Since the entries in this kids' devotional are dated, I plan to give this to my son (who will be 5 years old) as a Christmas present and start it with him on January 1st. We recently started homeschooling, and his first task every day is to read from his Children's Bible, which he loves! The first thing I noticed about this book was that the cover was adorable! I also like that the pages inside are colorful, but simple... and not overly childish. The wording is much the same way – not geared towards babies, but also would not be too confusing for young children with some help from mom or dad. It is written as if the LORD is speaking to the reader (ie. “As you begin each day, talk to Me about it.”). This collection of daily devotionals would be great for boys and girls of varying ages up to the teenage years. The short, concise reading is broken down into the scripture focus, a short blurb of text which expounds on the scripture or theme and then an additional verse or chapter is suggested to “read on your own.” Sarah Young has done a fine job providing some relevant, thought-provoking commentary on Scripture for kids, to keep them steady in their walk with God.
