I love finding books that will teach them and touch their hearts. My two children love to read a story at night and my son is beginning to understand the joy of reading. He is seven and just learned how to read in the last six months. I have two books to share with yall this week.
ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL
About the book:
First published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848, this favorite hymn has become a mainstay of churches and Sunday school classes everywhere. Here artist Katy Hudson brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”
About the artist:
Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in her spare time.
I remember reading this book as a kid in Sunday School growing up and now I am so thankful my kids will get to enjoy this wonderful and how Katy brought the art up to date. This is a perfect addition to any kid’s book collection. The book is very short and will take no time to read. My son loves to read this one to his sister, I am so thankful for this book making such wonderful memories. If you would like to win a copy for your little ones, comment below with your favorite kid’s book.
GIVE YOUR CHILD THE WORLD
This is an excellent resource book for parents with kids of all ages. It is mainly geared for kids aged 4-12. It is important for children to learn about the world and how other cultures live. I think it is especially important for kids to understand how luck they are to live in a country that is so blessed.
The book is broken down into 2 parts. The first is Falling in Love with the World and is filled with simple ideas that make a big difference, including ten ways to build a story-solid foundation for your family. “Practical Ways to Invite the World Into Your Home” includes introducing foods with an international flair, exploring a new country each month, starting a positivity bean jar, learning more about ethical spending, turning your travels near or far into a learning opportunity, and more.
The second part of the book is Read the World. Here is where you find Jamie’s book recommendations broken down by region, country, and age range (4-6, 6-8, 8-10 and 10-12). Sprinkled throughout part two is Global Perspective: How do you give your children the world in your home?. Here parents have answered with unique and sometimes inexpensive ways they incorporate learning about other cultures and spectacular places around the world without really going around-the-world. Jamie includes books highlighting Africa, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and other regions.
