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

*Hello Stars – Lena in the Spotlight

The book is about someone who likes to watch shows. She auditioned for a show one time and she became a star. I like that she is an aspiring star and in the spotlight. I don’t like the dog. It doesn’t go well with her outfit. But I like everything else. I recommend this to everybody who is over 6.  – Emily (7)

*The Berenstain Bears Friendship Blessings Collection

There were many lessons learned through the stories of Brother and Sister Bear when I was growing up. I think Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist was the very first book I got as a child. The lessons and stories of this bear family lives on! Friendship Blessings Collection includes five titles. At the end of Faithful Friends, Kindness Counts, and God Made You Special, there is a page with Activities and Questions from Brother and Sister Bear that relates to the lesson and story.  It is a sweet collection to read with your child, and if the characters are familiar to you, it would be fun for them to know Mom or Dad read about this same family when they were young! – Joyce (Mom)

*Princess Prayers

If you know me at all, you know that this book of prayers will most likely turn into a book of “raps” at our house because anything that rhymes needs not only to be simply read. :p But in all seriousness, this is a beautiful book with 15 prayers including the following topics: morning prayer, God’s beauty, happy times, safety, and being near to God. Each two-page spread includes a prayer, a verse, and a beautiful illustration. I thought this book would be too young for the girls, but Emily (7) really enjoyed it when it first arrived. P.S. I think it may have something to do with all the glitter on the cover. :p – Joyce (Mom)

*The Bible Explorer’s Guide: 1,000 Amazing Facts and Photos

Melody (10) – The Bible Explorer’s Guide is definitely suited for it’s title “Explorer.” If you’re someone who wants to dig in deeper and find out more about the Bible, then this book is for you!

The book is divided into different periods of time, along with detailed photos to help you picture the scene. The one I liked the best was the 1st century home one. I loved seeing how people from the ancient world lived, and I really can’t picture our family living back then!

There’s also maps to go along with the pictures, which is nice. Some of these things I don’t even know! But if you study the Bible more, you’ll recognize some of these amazing artifacts that, some, luckily, are still preserved in the ground for us to enjoy.

I would recommend this book to, like I said earlier, anyone who wants to dig in deeper and find out more about the Bible. I learned new things, too, while reading it!

Perfect for early morning reading sessions! 🙂
