You have all heard the stories time and again. Jonah and the whale, Daniel and the lions den, David and Goliath and so many more. But have you heard them in a fresh new voice? And accompanied by beautiful illustrations? Well here is your chance to do just that.!
As you are looking for an opportunity to delight in the same great stories that remind you just how amazing our God is, why not have an all out visual feast?
Don't forget to lift the flap on each page, where there is a letter written to you from God to go along with each story! What a great way to learn Gods word, no matter what your age, but especially for the young who still hold so much wonder for all things great!
This book is great! Really well done. I just love the illustrations. And the letters from God are such a nice touch. Especially the line given to write in a child's name. My children were thrilled when I added their names to the letter. They loved the picutres and sat still through each story, as it's just the right length. The corresponding verses on each page are a great way to get scripture in your kids hearts in a fun way. I Definitely would love to give this book as a gift to all the other children in my life.

Great book! I got this for the whole family to learn. I can see already that I'll be able to greatly improve my drawing skills. As well as my almost 4 year old. It's simple enough for kids, but complex enough for the adult trying to improve. I love the way it's laid out. And my kids like it when I read all the text as we go along. Great informational book for all ages that can hold a pencil!

Get out there and fall in love! And do it for only ten dollars. Whether it's dreaming of home renovations at the hardware store, planting flowers together in your back yard or acting like tourists in your own city- everyone will find something in this book that will help them reconnect with their spouse. You can choose from a number of stay at homes dates, get out in the city dates, dreaming and scheming dates or cozy coffee dates, and many more. And because child care often costs more than the date itself, you will also find a number of child care resources. So grab ten bucks and go have fun!
There were a lot of cute ideas in here, some stuff we already do just in daily life, and some stuff I'd not like. To do, like stay at home dates unless the kids were away. Just for me personally, I can't have a true date if the kids are present, even of they are sleeping, we still feel like we are on duty. A lot of these dates are just not do-able if you do not live near family or friends, as child care would make any of these 5 times the price. But if you are in a great community there are a lot of cute ideas to try out. I do think it would be fun to a t like newly weds again, talking to each other like we are just discovering each other for the first time. S maybe these will he is do that one day when we have the babysitting resources we need.

Kelly Maines feels anything but hopeful. Eight years ago her newborn baby was stolen right from her home. It's been eight years of dead ends. And it's been that many years she has held onto her private investigator and the dream she may yet find her daughter. Another chunk of money and yet another lead. Could it really be that her missing child has been this close all along? This is where she meets Jack Livingston, who has been raising his niece the past eight years. Is this just pure coincidence, or is this the bog break? Drawing near to Jack and Natalie (his neice), she now finds herself torn in between telling him the truth of her initial visit and keeping it hidden to just enjoy what is right in front of her. Long kept secrets come to the surface as everyone involved starts asking questions and looking for answers. Will her search end in vain.. Will she find what she was looking for, or will she see she wanted something different all along? This book really had me excited to see what would happen next. I will say, there was a little bit of cheesy dialogue that I didn't care for at times. But as the story goes, very intriguing. Twist and turns I didn't expect. I liked all the character contrast and was very pleased with this books ending! I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
