It features 365 daily readings on a promise of scripture, carefully written so that kids can understand. Author and illustrator Phil A. Smouse has created an engaging way to introduce youngsters to the unchanging goodness of God."

Excerpts from one of the editorial review:
"The Everyday Promise Book is a full year of daily devotionals for children.  Each day contains a Bible verse which is paraphrased by the author so that the child can fully understand God''s promises for that day.  Along with the Bible verse is a short paragraph of instruction and uplifting direction.  Everyday Promise Book is perfect for reading to a small child or for a young reader to read aloud. Both will find a perfect devotional for the day. The devotions cover a variety of subjects from salvation to behaviors, and the art work in the book is beautiful, colorful and soft.  The text is spaced well and readable."

I'm attracted to the cute cover page!

When I saw the page with a note to the parents, I smiled... There's a verse there (Read: Isaiah 40:8 (NIV)) which reminded me why I opted to review this book. I wanted us to have a closer relationship to God and hoping that this book can help.

I love the idea of a book with daily verses which we can flip through and read. Each pages is dedicated for each day in the calendar, with the daily verse and a very cute illustrations and a brief paragraph to accompany the verse.

I also love the index sections! It's categorized into sections such as "Anger", "Courage" and so on, followed by the days which is related to it, making it easy to look for the verses.

If you are planning to get a Christian gift book for a child, you should consider this book! I think this book is a good choice as it is written in simple and easy to understand words and even for Ben who is still young to be reading, at least I can show him the cute illustrations and make up my own version of story for each verses.

You can purchase My Everyday Promise Bible book from Amazon.
