Children’s books written by celebrities usually don’t impress me. But if your kids are familiar with the Duck Dynasty family (and even if they’re not), they will love Duck Commander Devotions for Kids.
And you will too.
The 100+ devotions are a good mix of focusing on God (who he is and what he does) and on our response to him (the actions that he says are right). Mother-and-daughter writing team Chrys Howard and Korie Robertson explain difficult concepts on a child’s level with great clarity.
Each devotion provides a Scripture, a humorous story or about someone in the Robertson family, a well-worded prayer, and a “Duck Commander in Action” section with additional application or activities.
The book’s design has lots of kid appeal, and Holly Conger’s illustrations–from the alligator end papers to the colorful, contemporary childhood scenes on every page–are just wonderful.
I passed up purchasing this one several times this year, but I’m REALLY glad I bought it and can recommend it to you now. (If you visit the book’s page on amazon.com, you can see some of the devotions and listen to a sample of the audio book too!)
Each month I buy a book to support retailers and other authors and to recommend to my readers. You can find this year’s picks for January, February, March, April , May, June, July, August, and September at those links and find a roundup of the books I bought for 2014 here.
