The language is easy for young children to understand. The illustrations are subtle and relevant to the daily devotion.
About the Author-
Juliet David lives in London with her family. She has written Bible activity books and children’s stories. She enjoys traveling to Israel and other Bible lands.
About the Illustrator-
Jane Heyes currently lives in the South of France. She has established her own publishing company. Her artwork has been in children’s books, ceramics, textiles, wall art, and more.
This flip calendar is perfect for young children to begin to know the Bible. Each day they can either read or have the story read to them while they look at the illustration. I think that it would have been nice to have if each day had the relevant Bible verses next to it. Some children might enjoy knowing more about the story.
I also would have enjoyed a day of the month not just a number of the year. My daughter and I had to use the computer to find out what number matched our date.
I enjoyed reading the text and looking at the illustrations in this book. I think the young children in your life would like it too. It would make a good present.
