Here’s a look at some new resources from Zondervan this month for your family:

*The Legend of the Sand Dollar

The lesson that I learned is that it is related to God. The sand dollar is a special part of the sea. It is worth happiness and joy. He created everything and did everything for us. I like it because I like the beach. I like the drawings and the sunset on the cover.  – Emily (7)

*The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Pets

The animals ran all over the place. The preacher said, “Peace!” and the animals listened. That’s funny. – Emily (7)

It is not surprising to see dogs in our church worship service because we have some families in our community who help with guide dogs for the blind.  But a whole congregation filled with all sorts of pets would be quite the sight! This book is a sweet story of how God created all creatures, and anyone who has a pet can agree how they can become part of your family. The book has the familiar illustrations I grew up seeing, but this book has an added bonus in the back – a word search, which is always fun. – Joyce (Mom)

*Faithgirlz Promises for You Coloring Devotional

This devotional, Promises For You Coloring Devotional, has coloring pages for each day and a devotional to go along with it. I like this because I like coloring myself, so this would be a nice change from a regular devotional. I would recommend this to anyone who likes art, but also wants to grow closer to God and spend time with Him. – Melody (10)

*Let’s Be Real

Most people who know who Natasha Bure may just refer to her as Candace Cameron (of Full House fame) Bure’s daughter, but as I have followed Candace on social media through the year, I can see how Natasha has stepped out to be her own person. And she shares that story in her book Let’s Be Real. In a world where we see things through “filtered” lenses of phone apps and just seeing snippets of others’ lives, she gives young women encouragement for living out their lives being true to themselves. My girls will probably not read the book for a few more years and it has been years since I have served as a youth leader, but I’m sure so many things have changed since smartphone have come onto the scene and I’m glad to have this to give me an idea of all things youth-related. Natasha talks about real friendships, real convictions, guys, family, health, beauty, and faith. I love how each chapter is broken up with her story, tips, practical advice, and inspiration. – Joyce (Mom)
