4. What Happens When I Talk to God: The Power of Prayer for Boys and Girls

5. Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series by Joey Allen

"I Can Follow Jesus"

Ideas in this book include:

God made everything. He made people unique and we exercise dominion. The Bible tells us about God’s power. He’s “in charge.” He’s also eternal and we can live with Him forever. God Is holy. I am sinful and sin even when I don’t want to. I commit sins of commission and omission. God loves and wants me to love Him most (no idols) and people. God is a good judge and disobedience to His rules brings punishment.

This book also includes information about the life, ministry and substitutionary death of Jesus, the Bible, grace, faith, repentance, lordship, and new life in Christ.

What’s commendable is:

This is really a comprehensive resource and yet, as my 5-year-old noted, “It’s (relatively) short.”

The number of pages with text is: 14

The number of sentences per page is about: 5

The number of words per sentence is about: 12

The writing style is: This is told in first person singular, “I can follow Jesus forever!”

The writing style is:  “Now tell the world what you have seen. Let everyone know that their sins can be forgiven if they turn to God! It’s possible because of what I have done.” (page 346)

"I Love My Bible"

Ideas in this book include:

The Bible is God’s book. It is the best book and it is true. It tells us about Jesus. It will last forever. It fits together though there were 40 human authors over hundreds of years. These are God’s instructions for us. We can memorize it. We can support missionaries who translate it. We can read it anytime and anywhere. We can obey it.

This book communicates much truth about the Bible in a straightforward manner and via examples.

The number of pages with text is: 21

The message and design are excellent.
