Once a month, the boys get a little devotional book in the mail. Kind of like a My Daily Bread . . . except for kids called Keys for Kids.
It comes from Children’s Bible Hour Ministries.
But we got something in the mail that I like even BETTER. Only because I REALLY enjoy books. These aren’t just ordinary books. These are QUALITY books, with neat watercolor pictures, a GREAT message, and they come complete with a soundtrack of the story!!! Yahoo!
The books are from CBH’s new book series titled, Seasons of Faith, designed to
encourage children to learn about their faith in God. Based on CBH Ministries’ treasure trove of radio scripts, these stories teach core truths of the Bible so that kids can easily apply them to their lives. Each book focuses on a season of faith-developing topics.
After you have read the story with your child (or listened to it) you can download a series of questions to further reinforce the meaning of each book.
Here is a little preview of each book to wet your appetite taken from the CBH website:
Becky spends spring break on her cousin Sarah's horse farm in Montana. Taking horse rides amidst the beautiful mountains and valleys, Becky tries to share her faith with Sarah as she talks about God's creation. Will Sarah listen?
Adam and his new friend Zack decide to build a tree fort one warm summer day. After zooming down a hill and falling into a muddy pond, Zack asks Adam about going to church and salvation. Will Adam be able to explain his faith to Zack?
Batter up! When Brad accidentally breaks the ice cream shop’s sign, the owner forgives Brad. But when his best friend Doug ruins Brad’s favorite baseball cap, will he be able to forgive Doug?
When Thomás moves away from his neighborhood and into a mobile home in his grandparents’ backyard, he misses his friends. There’s nothing to do around the apple orchard with no friends, his dad works a lot, and his little brother was hurt in an accident. All his sister wants to do is play with her dolls. Will Thomás be able to rely on God to get through the difficult times?
Each book is $10. That seems pretty fair to me considering you are purchasing a nice book AND a CD. Perfect for Quiet Times . . . as you can see. They listened to all 4 books in one sitting!

As a member of The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew, I was given these four books to review, and I do not have to return the product to the vendor. I was not paid for this post. All opinions expressed in this post are delightfully mine.
