Welcome to JoJo’s Corner.
Today I have 3 great books for kids from ZonderKidz:
***Special thanks to the publisher for sending me a review copies.***
Grab your spyglass and compass and set sail for adventure! Like a map that leads to great treasure, this revised edition of the NIV Adventure Bible Book of Devotions takes kids on a thrilling, enriching quest. This yearlong devotional is filled with exciting fictional stories about kids finding adventure in the real world. Boys and girls will learn more about God and the Bible, and be inspired to live a life of faith—the greatest adventure of all. Companion to the Adventure Bible, the #1 bestselling Bible for kids.
This devotional is perfect for kids!!! I love love love that there are devotionals for the entire year, so this really is a gift that will keep on giving. Each devotional has a unique title and starts with a Bible verse. Next, there is a short story about kids that I think all readers will be able to relate to. Basically these short stories allow your children to see a situation from an outside perspective and think about the Bible verses in a completely new applicable way! Then, the next section ties the story together with the Bible verse or theme for that devotional and often ends with a challenge or take away.
There are super fun facts throughout the devotional at the end of each day, these include…
Did You Know?
Words to Treasure
Life in Bible Times
People in Bible Times and MORE!!!
Again let me say, this is a FUN DEVO that kids will LUV! Liven up your kids quiet time & get them excited about God & His Word!

Based on the eye-opening best-selling series, this 90-day devotional for kids ages 9-12 explores the life of Jesus and what it means to be a Christian, while also tackling tough questions kids ask about God. For kids who want to learn more about their faith so they can share with others, this devotional uses light-hearted prose, illustrations, historical facts, research and true stories to bring to life the miracles, ministry and way of life of Jesus.
Lee Strobel is great! And I love that he has provided this 90 Day Devotional just for kids!!!
Kids are very inquisitive at this age…they want to know- WHO? HOW? And especially…WHY???
But I think sometime us adults just really don’t know where to begin to answer all their questions without massive overload on their ever-learning brains and God-hungry hearts.
Thankfully, there is help.
Lee digs to the heart of the issue concerning who the really JESUS is.
This devotional is perfect in that it takes it one day at a time, explaining and confirming the things that we believe.
I would recommend reading this DEVO every night with your child…I think it will spark some really awesome God-conversations!!!

The popular Everyday Zoo series for young children by beloved and New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer continues with The Christmas Pageant, a heartfelt and humorous story about the true meaning of Christmas. When Hayley Hippo is asked to direct the annual Christmas pageant, she decides this will be her Christmas gift to Jesus and she sets out to make everything perfect. However, after a series of disappointing mishaps, Hayley and her friends learn that they don’t need to be perfect. They realize that Christmas is not about the glittering lights, the perfect setting, or an impressive show, but about Christ.
I just love this book!!! I had read any of the others in the Everyday Zoo series, but I definitely will after this!!!
(I mean…I’ll read them to my 2 year old son…of course!)
This book is super colorful and super fun.
As soon as you open the book, there is a colorful map of Everyday Zoo, as well as a list of characters and their pictures.
(My son loves pointing out who everyone is and them recognizing them throughout the story)
But this is SO MUCH MORE than your typical kids book!
What I love is the strong message of faith displayed throughout the story and this one in particular that expresses that Jesus is what CHRISTMAS is all about (a message that can get lost this time of year).
