This is a Tommy Nelson publication in hardcover. Inside are devotionals divided into 4 categories- "How I Feel", "What I Do", "Where I Go" and "Who I Am". An index at the back of the book helps to locate devotions for specific Bible heroes, songs of praise, scriptures and subjects. This book is different from the devotionals I have used in the past as it incorporates activities into the lesson. For instance, the first section of each lesson "Praise" may be a song or a poem and may involve clapping or other activities. The next portion of the lesson will introduce the child to a variety of types and styles of prayer. This is followed by a Promise section which includes a quoted scripture. Next the lesson introduces a Bible story illustrating the main point of the lesson and this is followed with a "Please God" section. This final section includes an activity such as a finger play or a simple craft to help the child remember the lesson. While it seems like a lot, each lesson is only 5 pages long and nearly every page contains both text and a large colorful illustration. This book really is intended to appeal to a young child and to keep them engaged in the lesson. I think it would work well with my 3 year old and my older child would still be interested as well.

Note- some of the activities require you to read music or make up a tune. Some of the songs are common children's praise songs that you will recognize. The crafts may require supplies such as construction paper, paper bags, straws or a shoe box. So you won't want to just start reading the day's lesson without a little pre-planning and gathering of supplies. Also, there are suggestions of activities for cooking and blowing soap bubbles so if you have a child with allergies or other special needs, pre-read the lesson or be prepared to skip the final activity. (I will probably just skip the activities that don't fit our family.)
