MY TIDBITS


Love, strength, comfort and hope fill every page.

This is a sturdy, thicker little board book, perfect for small hands. The cover and pages can survive small accidents and are robust enough for little fingers. The cover is slightly padded, making it a joy to hold. In other words, this book is built for young readers/listeners.

Each two-page spread holds a short, yet meaningful glimpse into daily life and helps center thoughts on God. There's a short title, which is followed by a Bible verse. Then, a two verse poem (4 lines each) makes it clear how the thought from the verse can fit into life. At the end, is a short prayer.

The poems are easy to understand and are directly related to things which happen in the intended age group's lives—fort building with blankets, story time, swimming, a day at the park and more. Everything is meaningful and kept super short, insuring something for even those very small attention spans.

Sweet illustrations accompany every two-page spread, and these are what catches younger listeners' attention. Woolly is accompanied by two friends, a rabbit and a duckling, as they head from what fitting adventure into the next. The atmosphere is always cheerful and filled with hope. To add a little more fun, little details are dropped in, which are sure to catch the eye.

In other words, this is a cute book and great for daily readings to help young listeners learn more about their relationship with God in daily life.
