A new school year is starting and it seems like the perfect time to start with some new devotional materials so I was thrilled when this book came up for review a little while back! My girls (almost 5 and 3) love having our "chapter time" at night and each night we read from a "chapter book" (right now we're working on the Charlotte series of Little House books) and usually either a picture book or, right now, a devotional. This cute volume is PERFECT for reaching little hearts and we are LOVING it!
The One Year My Princess Devotions (Preschool Edition) by Karen Whiting is a dated devotional with short bursts of biblical knowledge perfect for sharing with little girl hearts. Each day has "Royal Words" (the bible verse for the day), "Princess Thoughts", which are a short 2-3 sentence devotional relating to the verse, a short prayer and then a "Princess in Action" activity for them to do. My little girls love talking about the verse and what they might be able to do in relation to it in the coming days and they look forward to hearing the new devotional each night before we go to bed. I like that they are short enough to keep their attention (recommended ages for this book are 3-5) and that they are easy for them to understand without a lot of explanation which can be difficult to get into right before bed :) All in all this is one of our favorite devotional, right up there with my other recent review of the Princess stories. If you have 3-5 year old girls like I do, I think you'll really enjoy this time with your girls!
