grandma's bookshelf - My Grandma & Me - I'm Giving One Away

If you are like me, you make a practice of keeping your eyes open for resources which you can use with your grandchildren to help them know, love and follow Jesus. If you do, you may want to take a look at the new devotional book, My Grandma & Me.

My Grandma and Me
Author - Crystal Bowman
Illustrator - Katherine Kirkland
Publisher - Tyndale Kids
Ages - 0-5

Favorite Features -
  • 26 Rhyming Devotions and four Passing Down the Faith short "studies" for grandma to use with her grandchildren
  • each devotion includes a Bible verse, a rhyme and either a prayer or a song with a familiar tune
  • illustrations of children and grandmas
If you and your grandchildren like poems and rhymes, this book gives you some simple devotions which you could use with young preschoolers covering topics including creation, God's love, trusting God, prayer, the Bible, helping, sharing, loving others, being thankful, praising God, telling others and more. The "Passing Down the Faith" studies cover the Ten Commandments, Psalm 23, the Lord's Prayer and a prayer for grandmothers. Simple and short this book will give grandmas some ideas about how to have important conversations with her grandchildren.

Not only did Tyndale send me one book to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you would like to be included in this give-away which will be on October 9, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win this book and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
