His Mighty Warrior, a child's map and message

With 2 little boys who love reading and listening to stories of pirate ships and dragons, I was very excited to find His Mighty Warrior by Sheri Rose Shepherd  .  Thie little daily devotional  is written at a early reader level and is just hard enough that my 3rd grader can read it but easy enough that my 1st grader will still and listen while not feeling like he isn't getting it.

The colorful pictures including a treasure map give add a fun element that helps keep the boys' attention. The book is a smaller size book which helped Cameron on a recent road trip. He was able to pack the book in his book bag still leaving room for his school work.

Each daily devotion is written as a letter to the boys, building on the child of G_d connection. There is a relevant scripture and then a prayer they can pray.

I really appreciated everything being right there for us. I didn't have to go look up an additional verse for them and the simple prayer was one we could pray together.

One day we were reading it and the boys were having one of those very fidigity days so I had them draw a picture to go with it. Nathan tried to copy the colorful pictures in the book while Cameron dreamed up a continuation picture that could have been set along side the book and blended right in.

This has been one of the best devotional we have tried with the boys.  Since it doesn't have days or dates we can use it daily or weekly and not feel like we have lost tract or failed some how.
If you have a little boy or boys this is a great gift book devotional.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion of the book. No monetary compensation was received.
