In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.

Ken Ham and Cindy Malott. Answers Book for Kids Volume 5: Space and Astronomy.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, September 27th 2013. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Looking for a book on space for young kids that’s written from a Christian worldview? This volume in the Answers Book for Kids series by Ken Ham is on the topic of space and astronomy!  My kids really liked this and when I asked them to describe the book in one word they said “Cool,” “Fun” and “Awesome.”  One of my daughters enjoyed the discussion about the Black Hole which was new to them while another said they enjoyed the illustration.

Jocko Willink.  Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win.  New York, NY: Saint Martin’s Press, October 20th 2015. 320 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

How well do you own up to your own fault and flaws?  Do you often blame other people and your circumstance when you should be admitting your own fault?  This was a good book on leadership by a combat leader in the Navy SEALS.  It wasn’t only just a good book on leadership; it was also a good book of how to be under leaders as well.  The title of the book captures the subject of the material well; it is a book on taking personal responsibility of what you do.  Taking responsibility is a big important mark of a good leader versus a bad leader.

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of Children’s books.  While this week’s review of children’s books aren’t Christian works they are still something homeschool kids and parents would appreciate!

Here are two small works that my wife and I enjoyed for our devotionals together.  You might find them edifying as well.

Michael Reeves. Enjoy your prayer life.  Leyland, UK: 10Publishing, March 10th 2014.  46 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Are you looking for a good book that would increase your appetite for prayer or maybe a work that would encourage you to think more biblically about prayer?  Personally I think most people can always grow in prayer; I know that’s certainly true for me.  This book is what I would recommend!  Michael Reeves have written other helpful spiritual books for the general reading audience and this work is no different; it is biblically solid while being practical but practical in a worshipful and God reverential way.

A lighthearted weekend reading review…because sometimes Pastors need a break from heavy reading also.  This evening’s book is on..reading!

Maryanne Wolf. Reader, Come Home: The Reading Brain in a Digital World.  New York, NY: Harper, August 14th 2018. 272 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a book about reading and the medium one uses to read (digital, print, etc) and how it affects our brains.  The author Maryanne Wolf writes in a rather informal style of “letters.”  No matter the format the content of the book and what she has to talk about is fascinating and worth reading.

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.  This book just came out last week and its currently #1 in Amazon’s category of New Release for Children’s Bible study.  At this moment it is relatively reasonable in its price too!

 

Harvest House Bible Inforgraphics Team. Bible Infographics for Kids Volume 2.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, May 7th 2019.  56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a fun and informative book for kids concerning the Bible published by Harvest House Publishers.  I went through this book together with my kids at night and they enjoyed the pictures, graph and facts.  The details include truths that are more like “fun facts” but at times there were some very good instruction concerning more weighty matters that was extremely helpful.  The artwork is well done and really reinforce the content being taught.  After reading this volume I’m considering getting volume 1 which is my vote of approval for this book.

Barry G. Webb.  Five Festal Garments.  Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, March 26th, 2001.  151 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This book is on a Christian examination of five books in the Old Testament that are most neglected in the Bible: The Song of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes and Esther.  If you want to learn more about these five books and gain rich insights on them then this volume is worth getting.  This work is a part of the New Studies in Biblical Theology series edited by D.A. Carson.  Personally it was the second title in the series that I read which I looked forward to with much anticipation since the first book I read Adopted into God’s Family left a strong impression.  Five Festal Garments didn’t disappoint.  In fact it exceeded my expectation!
