Though I’m well aware of their existence, this is my first Sarah Young book to actually own and read. Adapted from one of her devotional books for adults, Jesus Today Devotions for Kids is a great addition to any family’s library.
In each of the 150 devotionals, there is a a word from Jesus (literally — it’s written as if He wrote it) and Bible verses that support it. The verses are all written out, but I always prefer to read Scripture directly out of my Bible so when we work through this book with our children, we’ll have both.
The back of the book has an organized index of Scripture used throughout the book. This is a great reference tool if you’re looking for a devotional based on a specific topic or Bible verse. The days are only numbered and not dated, so it’s not a devotional which requires you to read it chronologically; each day is a stand-alone.
From a Christian perspective, there’s not really anything more important in parenting as teaching your children to be in the Word every day — teaching and also exemplifying. This is a great book to help a parent do just that. Each day is short, so discussion afterwards can be as long as works for the family. If you’re looking for something like this, I definitely recommend this well-written children’s devotional.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
