Sally Lloyd-Jones wrote Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing with the intention of it being used to guide children into a daily devotional time. Her words combined with the artistic talent of Jago and the life-giving Word of God make for the perfect tool to help your little one begin that life-long habit.
In the Deluxe Edition the daily thoughts have been recorded on two cds by the distinguished British actor David Suchet. I can think of so many wonderful ways to use this valuable set. I know the objective is for a daily reading, but it would be a perfect companion on a long car trip. When my kids were little it was popular to do read-along books with tapes. This book and cd set would work well in that same manner. Your child could follow along in the book while the narration was being played. It would not only help increase their reading skills but they would also be soaking in valuable principles from God's Word.
I do have a small confession to make . . . as an adult I love this for myself. Listening to the cds is like having a blessing being spoken over you by a beloved grandfather. For the past several days I have popped one of the cds in as I've gone about my business around the house. It has been a beautiful time of worshiping and communing with my Savior. As that soothing British voice speaks, I find myself pausing just to soak in the truth that is being put forth. We are loved with an everlasting love by an all encompassing Savior. Hallelujah!
I encourage you to get this for your little ones, but also to take the time to bask in it yourself. Let the Word and truth spread over you and cover you with an assurance of love like no other.

Excellent children's devotional!
Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing is a beautifully written and illustrated devotional type book for youngsters. I thoroughly enjoyed it myself! The writing is creative, easy to understand, and saturated with lessons in understanding the Gospel and God's love for us. Everyday items found in nature are exquisitely utilized, the messages beautifully conveyed by the author, and illustrated by the artist. Illustrations are colorful and delightful! The CDs that accompany this deluxe edition are a bonus! The entire family can benefit from this beautifully packaged set. I was very impressed by this gift package of devotions and the CDs that accompany the book. I highly recommend Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing!
