Book Review-Streams in the Desert for Kids


Streams in the Desert for Kids
By:  L.B. Cowman
Publisher:  ZonderKidz

365 Devotions of God’s awesome Love!

From the back of the book:
Life Isn’t Easy, Just Because you’re a Kid. 
 “You know how tough it can be! Bad things happen that make you feel sad, afraid, lonely, or confused. In those times, you need encouragement, wise advice, and help trusting in God. Streams in the Desert for Kids is a year-long book of devotions to help you when things seem hard. Based on a famous book written many years ago, this book combines timeless wisdom with modern stories, sports info, cool scientific facts, and more.
Best of all, it shares amazing insights into God's Word from the classic Streams in the Desert in ways you can relate to, and it helps you apply those insights to your life.  All it takes is a couple of minutes reading each day to help you deal with life’s difficult issues and be refreshed, like drinking a cold glass of water on a hot day.”

My Review:
With life’s busy schedule parents often find it hard to help their children with their daily devotions. These devotions, which vary in length from one-half page to a full page, make it easy to find the time. 

All scripture quoted, unless otherwise stated, is taken from the NIV.  Each of the devotions begins with scripture, followed by the discussion of a topic that correlates with the scripture and ends with a prayer. 

This is a wonderful way to help your tween become rooted in God’s Word.  It can be used to either start or end your day in God’s Word and many of the topics covered in the devotions could easily be used to initiate discussions on situations at school or daily stresses.  Yes even children have stressful events in their lives. 

I loved these devotions.  They are perfect for ages 8-12.  I would highly recommend them. 

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book, by the publisher, ZonderKidz, for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
