Book review, “100 Read & Sing Devotions, 100 Bible Songs,” Stephen Elkins author

100 Read & Sing Devotions, 100 Bible Songs, created by Stephen Elkins and illustrated by Tim O’Connor, is an excellent tool for younger children. It comes with two CDs that include 100 songs, one for each devotion. The padded hardback cover and thick pages make it sturdy for little hands to maneuver.  Also, the incredibly beautiful illustrations draw and hold one’s attention.

Each of the devotions includes several parts. They begin with a song from the CD, listed by both CD number and song number.  Then they move on to a short devotion, written in simple terms that children can easily understand.  There is a “Word Watch” Bible verse to remember and a prayer for each day.  The
entire devotional time should not take more than about fifteen minutes, great for even a child with a short attention span.

I was quite impressed with this book and the music.  It will be perfect to use with young ones at home or church.  The music includes some familiar tunes as well as some that were new to me. It is definitely a recommended book, a blessing to all who open it.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
