I feel weird writing a "normal" blog post after the past two weeks of chaos. Sometimes normal is exactly what you need, no matter what is happening.
The book Bible Stories That End With A Hug created by Stephen Elkins is exactly what we needed at this time. I thought that it may be good for all three kids but is way too young for Jacob and Becca so it has become Joe's book. He brings it to me every night and we read it together. This is excellent because with all the changes happening in the family recently it seems to have affected Joe the most. He has been acting out and getting an attitude and having a little quiet time with mommy each night before bed seems to relax and reassure him.
Each Bible story is very short and while I am reading Joe loves looking at the illustrations, which are very cute, colorful, and nicely done. At the end of the story comes hug time, which is Joe's favorite part. I have even found him reading this to his baby doll and he always says "Hug time!" and hugs his doll at the end.
This is such a sweet book, perfect for bedtime or morning devotionals with the littles. It would especially make a great Valentine's Day or Easter gift for the special little person in your life.
This book was given to me by Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
