My Mama and Me by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley (children's book review and GIVEAWAY)

"My Mama and Me" is a "Rhyming Devotions for You and Your Child" by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley. Phyllis Harris made some really beautiful illustrations for this devotional.

Each devotion rhymes, so it's easily entertaining for children. The sections speak to telling children about God, Jesus, what God thinks of us, and how to show God that we love Him. I'd like to share an example of the devotions:

God Keeps You Safe
The LORD is the one who keeps you safe. -Psalm 91:9, NIrV

Our Devotion
God keeps you safe all through the day.
He watches you as you run and play.
When you're at home or in the car,
God is with you where you are.

He keeps you safe all through the night.
His moon shines down to give you light.
Even through a thunderstorm,
God will keep you safe and warm.

Our Prayer
Dear God, thank you for protecting me and keeping me safe all the time. Thank you for always being with me and watching over me. In Jesus' name, amen.

Then each devotion has a fun idea for "mama and me" that shares and activity or song that you can do with your little one(s).

This is a really great book for moms with small children. A very simple devotion to get them ready to have their own quiet times with the Lord as they grow. I try to have some devotion time and time to read the Bible itself with my kids every day (although, as any mom knows, not much happens as regularly as we would like). My boys enjoy the time and I am encouraged as they have grown in knowledge about the Bible and love for the Lord.

Oh I have so many favorite times during the day. If I had to pick just one I would say dinner time. When we are all together and get to talk about our days. Thank you for another great review. I would love to read this with my little ones.
