Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs...For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:1-2, 5

Good Morning, God!

I was given the opportunity to review this beautifully illustrated children’s book from Apologia, written by Davis Carman.

Good Morning God

The book is reasonably priced at $14.00. It comes with suggestions on how you can use the book…

*simply read the book

*read the story then ask the questions and do the activities that are at the back of the book or just pick some of both

* if you want to do a mini-curriculum, you can read the story everyday and do the questions and activities that are for that day of the week you are on…for example on Monday you would read the whole book, but maybe emphasize Monday then ask the Monday’s questions and activities.

I can’t say it any better than Apologia already did…                     
{Good Morning, God is a story about a four-year-old boy as he goes through a week with his family. This book is designed for children age one to eight years old. Ideally, this book will help your child fall in love with our heavenly Father by thinking about Him from sunrise to sunset. The hope is that this book will introduce children to the simple and wonderful ways we can worship God daily and inspire them to enjoy the Lord with their entire being all through the day. The prayers for each day are meant to encourage your child to consider his or her relationship with Jesus and respond with childlike faith.}

I, so far, have just simply read the book to the kids and they enjoyed the simple and repetitive text. I do plan on doing the other suggestions as well…                                                              
The activities and questions are different each day, such as, draw a picture of a heart, read Matthew 6:19-21, take a walk outside and look at all that God created, read Philippians 2:5-11 or questions like, What does it mean to be made in God’s image? Or What are some ways you can worship God?

The book is based on the Deuteronomy 6:6-7 passage, These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” The passage is woven throughout the book. It starts with Sunday going through each day of the week ending on Sunday again. If you want to see a sample of the book go here and click the sample chapter.

I love the the illustrations and the story of the little boy and how he goes about his day, how he thinks about his Heavenly Father and how his parents are impressing the word of God on their children. I would recommend this story to anyone with younger children.

I noticed that they have a coloring book that goes along with it as well for $4.00.
