Book Review: I Can Learn the Bible

I got to review this cute book from Thomas Nelson Publishers.  This is a great little hard backed book, an excellent devotional to work through with your kids!  Each devotional centers around a verse, explaining its meaning and encouraging memorization. It is intended for each devotional to be used over the course of a week, and in the introduction, the author gives suggestions for each day's activity.  The illustrations are darling, and the pages are thick and sturdy.  The verses chosen are excellent, encouraging our faith and walk with God.  I will definitely work through this with my children, these are excellent verses and devotions for children as well as adults! I would recommend this for families that want a devotional good for a range of ages, as it is simple enough for younger children, yet can spark discussion and conversation with older children.  It could easily be used for a child's personal devotions as well.

I recieved a copy of this book from the publishers in return for my honest review.

Book Review: Sabotaged

Sabotaged (Alaskan Courage #5)Sabotaged by Dani Pettrey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sabotaged by Dani Pettrey is the last book in the Alaskan Courage series which follows the McKenna family siblings. This book follow Reef McKenna, the black sheep who returned to the fold in a previous book and his childhood friend Kirra as they delve into the mystery of the disappearance of Kirra's cousin Meg.  Kirra and Reef are volunteering for the annual Iditarod race when they find out that Kirra's uncle is being forced to forget the race and complete another mission in order to save his kidnapped daughter, Meg.  Reef and Kirra team up to find Meg and discover what Uncle Frank is up to, with the help of Reef's siblings. I enjoyed this book, the mystery was entertaining.  The romance was a little over the top for me, as the interest is already there for both and they are a little sicky sweet from the get go!  The conflict in the romance comes from a bad experience Kirra had in college which she hasn't really gotten over.  I enjoyed this entire series, this book was a good clean easy read.  I'd recommend this book (and the series, though I'd say it isn't completely necessary to  have read others in the series, but it does make this book more enjoyable) to those who are looking for clean mysteries with a great message of faith. I will say that if you are used to more in depth, intricate plots, this may be a bit simplistic.
