Dare You to Open this Book is a 90 day devotional that is filled with activities. These activities allows your child to learn scripture and retain the content. This devotional is geared towards tween aged young boys. My son who is almost a tween did like the format of the book and the Biblical content. I will say that as much as my son liked this book, both my son and I found one thing we were not crazy about. It seems to be written for the stereotypical young boy who likes or find gross things funny. Maybe my son is just different, but calling Jonah a dude and saying he was covered in ‘fish vomit’, wasn’t something he cared to read about. I think it is possible to show humor without being gross, and my son agrees. Overall, Dare You to Open this Book is at its core a great devotional and would be a good choice for a young boy. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Dare U 2 Open This Book: Draw It, Write It, Dare to Live It is a devotional book by Carol McAdams Moore for boys. I also reviewed her one for girls titled Just Sayin’: Write ‘em, Draw ‘em, Hide ‘em in Your Heart. Since my girls and I were so excited about her devo geared for girls, I thought I should check out this one too. My son isn’t old enough yet, but I’m planning ahead. :) Again, Carol McAdams Moore has created 90 engaging devotions that will appeal to a range of ages and personalities as they explore God’s truth and different ways to put them into action. Along with a topic, quote, and Scripture summary, other fun and creative activities are include, such as puzzles, doodles, quizzes, and other unique activities. The author prays that through Dare U 2 Open This Book and her other devos the kids will “discover Jesus and find Him more amazing than ever imagined!” I LOVE her heart for kids and her willingness to think out of the box in these devotions. I pray that these will help kids grow in their faith as they express their thoughts and feelings in creative ways. I received a free copy of this book from BookLook in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.
Dare U 2 Open This Book is for BOYS. It is set up in the same format as it's companion book, JUST SAYIN', but the questions, graphics, and activities are more for boys’ tastes than girls. (This is probably why the girls book is pink and the boys is red.) Again it is set up in the same way, with a Bible verse, more reading or explanation, and then an activity for kids to do each day. Take for example, number 46: “In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.” Ephesians 4:26 Then Carol writes, “Mad. Sometimes you feel it. You know when. Sometimes it’s people. Sometimes, it’s you. Y-O-U. Sometimes it’s things or maybe nothing exactly. Then she asks boys to doodle how they feel when they are mad. And then tells boys to think about what it would look like instead of mad-thinking to pray, and of course to doodle it. I think these books are perfect for kids who want to learn more about God, the Bible, and Christianity. It’s perfect for parents and youth leaders who want these lessons to be fun and to compete with everything else out there: video games, TV, etc.
Dare U 2 Open this book: Draw It, Write It, Dare 2 Live It by Carol McAdams Moore is marketed towards boys but my daughter LOVED this book! The interaction with the reader is wonderful and encourages deeper thinking of what was just read. This devotional gives lots of room to doodle and write which is great for a little girl who loves to make her pages look pretty! My daughters favorite day was Day 8 where the devotional challenges you to think about the mountains clapping and singing songs of joy! G thought this was a silly idea and definitely fell under the No way this could ever happen category. But then I challenged her to think about what limitations does God really have? If He wanted to make the mountains clap and sing, could He? This book get's a definite two thumbs UP from G! She absolutely loved the book and it now lays on her bedside table to read at night before bed. And that makes me love the book! I did present this book to my son, J, who is G's twin brother. They are both 7 years old. Though he would listen to the devotions, he is anti-color anything right now! That is why I decided to hand the book over to my daughter and let her have fun!
