Book Review: God's Promises for Girls

My daughter squealed when we opened the package containing my latest BookSneeze book, God's Promises for Girls by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker.  She carried it around with her, and insisted I read the first few sections immediately.  I was happy to comply.

It's a small book -- roughly 7" by 5" and only 128 pages.  Perfect size for Trina to be carrying around, and perfect size for me to not worry about having time enough to read.

Each two page spread talks about a promise and includes a short rhyme, an adorable illustration, and a few Bible verses.  One that hit home, as Grandma is visiting right now, is God's Promises About... Praying for Your Family:

Brothers, sisters, uncles, and aunts, 
Grandmommies and granddaddies too --
Pray a prayer for your family,
And thank God for giving them to you!

Verses such as Micah 7:7, Job 22:26-27, Acts 10:4 and 2 Thessalonians 3:3 and 3:5 follow, and the illustration has Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, two kids and a teddy bear around the table praying.

My daughter adores this book, and I'm quite pleased as well.

Disclaimer:  As Booksneeze Blogger, I did receive this book for free from Thomas Nelson.  No other compensation was received.  The fact that I received a complimentary product does not guarantee a favorable review.  It does guarantee a review. A fair review. But I am not going to praise something unless I think it deserves the praise.  If I don't like it, you'll hear that.  And hopefully with enough detail as to why so you can decide for yourself if what I hate about it makes it perfect for your family.  For more about my take on reviews, visit my blog post here.
