Overview

Kids ages 6-10 love trivia, and this devotional is chock-full of interesting and sometimes silly facts. Each fact is explained briefly; the theme of the fact is then used to share a biblical truth as well as a Bible verse. The Bible message and verses tie directly to the theme of the facts, providing a better opportunity for kids to remember and apply the biblical message. What car was the first car Henry Ford built? Why do we say o’clock? Which American candy was named after someone’s daughter? Find the answers to these questions and learn a biblical lesson by reading The One Year Did You Know Devotions 2.

The Nutshell: A devotional with lots of trivia and stories to make each day's devotional come a bit more to life. Pro's: Easy for kids to read and understand. Geared more for elementary age kids.  Con's: There didn't seem to be much guided discussion for each day. Also, I think more delving into scripture would be beneficial, like offering more verses to look up after each devotional. Of course, parents can guide this and take it much further than what is on the page. Tyndale House Publishers sent me this complimentary copy to review for them. Opinions are my own.

It was my pleasure to review this book for Tyndale Publishing. As a parent, like many others, who want to instill the teachings of the Bible in her children daily, this book was perfect. These devotions take your children through a year of God's Word in a way the captivates children's minds and inspires questions and conversations. My children have looked forward to reading this book daily and learing more about God's Word and God's amazing world. Children are inherently curious and egocentric. So, to grab them you need to not only appeal to their curiosity but show them how it applies to what they know or see in the world. Did You Know Devotions 2, hits that goal! Each day your child will read a verse and and learn something new while applying it all to their spiritual path. This book is great for family devotions. Discover with your child answers to questions like: Do all mosquitoes bite?, Could the tortise really beat the hair?, Why do we call it a Caesar salad? and more! This will get your family talking around the dinner table about God's amazing world through the lens of God's amazing Word. Well, I had to grab the book away from the kids to write the review and now they want it back...I suppose that's proof enough this book will make a wonderful addition to your home library.

I received a devotional from Tyndale (a complimentary copy) recently. It is one that I will hold onto--but I will definitely hold onto it, because I do like it--a lot! It is called "Did You Know? Devotions 2" by Nancy S. Hill It has 365 devotions, so it will take you through a whole year (you really get your money's worth =) ) and includes a verse, an interesting question and the answer and then a related thought about God for children to think about. I read several to my daughters yesterday and realized very quickly that they are too young right now for this book. It is listed as being for ages 6-10. I would usually recommend it for children 7-10 unless the child is a very curious or gifted 6 year old. I was surprised by how much I like this book and I do definitely look forward to reading it to my children when they are older. It would be a great devotional for a mixed group of children--both girls and boys. I think it's often harder to find good devotionals that will engage both boys and girls because they often have a lot of different interests (at least my daughters and son do). It reminds of something that a friend shared with me about why young boys are slower to become good readers. There has been some research done that has shown that typically men and boys read nonfiction and don't prefer to read fiction. Women, on the other hand, tend to read mostly fiction. In the past, most of the books for written for younger children and beginning readers has been fiction. Now, publishers are coming out with beginning readers that are nonfiction. It's wonderful--because that's what boys want to read! I think the same might be said of this devotional. The topics that Nancy Hill has chosen for her daily devotionals are things that would be interesting to both boys and girls--they are nonfictional, informational types of questions, but there's a lot of variety to them. What a great devotional book to share with our children!
