This BIBLE GEMS TO REMEMBER DEVOTIONAL FOR KIDS is a lot deeper than I expected for a kids devotional. They are written simply, so even a younger child can understand, but yet they contain more meat than a lot of adult devotionals. I was pleasantly surprised! There are 52 devotions, if you want to do one a week (like for a short kid's lesson at a Christian club or backyard club) or you can use them for daily devotions. The verses are considerably edited, to make it simple memorization. Like "There is a God." "Trust God." They are designed for today's kids with short attention spans and no ability to memorize long passages. However, I do not think the cover sparkles and shines. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

“This book offers a year’s worth of inspiring, encouraging Gems–one per week–paired with insightful devotions to help readers understand the Gem and relate to it,” the note to parents states in Robin Schmitt’s children’s book, Bible Gems to Remember Devotions for Kids: 52 Devotions with Easy Bible Memory in 5 Words or Less. ~ What ~ This one-hundred-and-ninety-two-page paperback targets young children from eight to twelve years old who like applicable devotions gleaned from the Holy Bible. By using less than five-word “Gems,” the topics are easy to remember and memorize. The New International Version of the Bible is referenced, and colored photographs with highlighted areas that include pictures of gemstones are added. After an ownership page, table of contents, and introduction, the book contains fifty-two devotions to be read one a week. Covering two to four pages, each chapter begins with a short title that can be memorized, followed by a written out Bible verse or two. Several paragraphs relate to the topic, whether about the Old or New Testament, a Biblical character, or current day event or object. The subject correlates how the reader can be closer to God or learn more about Him. Two to three Gems are at the end with corresponding verses to look up or research. Some of the chapters are titled: Christ has set us free, The last will be first, Come near to God, Fight the good fight, Guard your heart, Set an example, Rejoice in the Lord always, and One person sharpens another. ~ Why ~ Teaching vulnerable young adults about God can be challenging, especially when they want to take a step further and do devotional reading. I like that this one is easy to read and relate to by its age group while using the concept of memorizing short “gems” from the Bible. It is thoughtful that the author has written an illustrated Bible in the same manner for younger kids, while this one is geared toward those older. An example of one chapter I enjoyed is “There is Only One God” with Romans 3:30 written out. The contents explain how Elijah from the Old Testament was in a contest with the prophets of Baal to start a fire, and he won when he called upon God. The section challenges the reader to be convinced of God’s existence and power. The two ending Gems are “You alone, Lord, are God” from 2 Kings 19:19 and “There is none like you” from Psalm 86:8. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not want to promote teaching a tween or pre-teen about God and the Bible will pass on this book. It appears the book is mainly for those who already have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It may be too advanced for younger readers. ~ Wish ~ I could not find the eternal plan of salvation at the beginning of the book and wish Jesus dying on the cross for our sins was mentioned before the 48th chapter. I prefer all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. ~ Want If you are looking for a book for older kids of devotions from the Bible that can be read one a week throughout a year and contains memory words related to them, this would be an good choice for a young Christian who wants to get closer to God. Thanks to Z-Blog Squad for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
