* Mama Buzz, and reviewers, were provided with a complimentary copy of this book for blog tour purposes*


Big Thoughts for Little People by Kenneth N. Taylor

Ages 3-7

Hardcover retails for $14.99

From back cover:

With all-new art, Big Thoughts for Little People is an updated version of the best-selling picture book by renowned children's author Kenneth N. Taylor. Using the alphabet as a learning tool, this beloved picture book connects Bible themes and verses with engaging art.

Children and adults will enjoy learning biblical concepts and verses while searching for lessons (and hidden ladybugs) in the art. Learning has never been so much fun!

My Thoughts:

I once again had the privilege to review another childrens book. I was so excited to open this package when it arrived. The format is wonderful to say the least. Each letter is associated with a word (obviously...LOL) and a phrase follows that helps to remember what the letter stands for. Like a is for asking, b is for behave, etc. Then there is a paragraph talking about the corresponding illustration. Not only does it draw attention to certain aspects of the illustration, it also draws the child's attention to our Heavenly Father.

There are also a few questions to prompt the parent (or caregiver) to have a discussion with the child(ren). It helps the child(ren) to think outside of themselves and to focus on what they can do for others. It's so much fun to hear all three of my older children give ideas on things they can do to help others. :-) They get so excited coming up with all the ideas!

Who wouldn't want to read this book to their children? I highly recommend it to anyone that has a child they can read to. :-) Thanks again to Tyndale for allowing me the privilege to review this book.
