I often agree to doing reviews for books I think my children would like. So, when the opportunity arose to review Hello Stars, I immediately thought of my daughter. Truth be told, once I started reading the book, I found myself drawn into the book---me, an adult! Even though the audience is clearly young girls (likely tweens), I was personally blessed by this book.

I recently had the privilege of reviewing an absolutely wonderful devotional for girls called Brave Girls: Beautiful You. Although this was my first time reading anything from the Brave Girls series, I'm certain it won't be my last. Devotions in this little gem of a book are told from the point of view of one of three different girls: Gracie, Hope, and Glory.

Because I know my kids like jokes, I thought it would be fun to review Lots of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids. Some of the jokes were cute. Some, typical of knock-knock jokes, were kind of silly and pointless. However, I have to keep in mind that they ARE knock-knock jokes.

I am always looking for a good devotional for my children. Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids definitely fits the bill. This 365 entry devotional is a perfect way to start out the New Year with the kids. The layout is aesthetically pleasing because it stays simple--without the busyness often found in children's books.

Initial Thoughts: I decided to review the NKJV FaithGirlz Bible because I wanted to see if it was something young girls like my daughter might like. Not only do I think that they would like it, but I also personally enjoyed looking through this Bible. The colorful "girly" pages with occasional splashes of pretty light pink, purple, or fuchsia were fun.

Eileen Spinelli has written an absolutely delightful book: Thankful. The description on the book jacket says the following: "Beloved children's author Eileen Spinelli and illustrator Archie Preston inspire children of all ages with Thankful, a whimsical picture book that celebrates the everyday blessings we find in our lives." This book is, indeed, whimsical and inspirational.

Sometimes I find that it takes me awhile to truly delve into a book: the plot might be slow moving at first or somewhat complex/confusing from the start. However, that is not the case with Colleen Coble's A Heart's Obsession, which is the second book in her “Journey of the Heart” series. I was drawn into this story from the first page. In fact, I was so intrigued by this fast moving story that I read it all within a twenty-four hour period.
