Every bit as sweet and kind as Jen Hatmaker is saucy and sassy, Becky Thompson has published a lovely book here, perfect for mothers who are in desperate (or not so desperate) need of HOPE. Becky's style of writing makes you feel like you're sitting next to her in your living room with a big ol' mug of some comforting drink, just talking together about live, love, and the wonderful grace of God. I didn't want to put the book down, and cannot wait to lend it out to my girlfriends! You won't regret it. Buy two so you can gift one to another!

Great book. I bought it a few years ago but it was published by Penguin Publishing in 2005. This is published by another. Wish she'd write another new one.

Getting the little ones to sit still while we share God's Word with them can be daunting at times. So we resort to imparting God's truth to them with various tools. These can either be too dense and wordy or either too short and trite. With the My Toddler Bible I found that the size of the book is just right for toddler's hands. The illustrations clear, bright, and enticing to the young child. Now the meat of the book is really what it says or the truth it imparts, isn't it? Well, Juliet David again does a fabulous job of giving enough, well worded text that the story is told with enough detail to gain the attention of that little listener and yet not bore them. The clincher is this..... at the end of each little story, the truth of the story is effortlessly stated so that not only is it "story-time" but it is also "truth-in-learning" time. Wonderful! For example: with the story of the lost sheep, the last lines are... How pleased the shepherd was that he'd found his lost sheep again. God is happy too, when Jesus finds lost people and they return to Him. And the parable of Sowing the Seeds.... Jesus explained this story to his friends. "Sowing the seeds is link sowing God's message," Jesus said. "Some falls on the path, or on rocky ground. People get excited by God's message - but soon they give up. But some falls on good soil. People hear God's message, and keep it in their heart. The stories are separated into Old Testament and New Testament and follow the same sequence in which they would be found in the regular version of the Bible. Each of the 20 stories is several pages long with several lines of text and a picture on each page. The text flows effortlessly in "story-time" style. An ideal little book for toddlers and one that they will fall in love with and ask repeatedly for "Bible Time." The toddler probably will still love this book when they begin reading on their own. And families with several children will find that this is a great way for the older children to read to the young ones. About the book: Fans of Chris Embleton-Hall's cheerfully distinctive artwork will be eager to see this new Bible! Twenty stories--nine from the Old Testament and eleven from the New--are retold in a concise and friendly manner in a rounded, easy-to-read font. Very, very bright, and very, very fun!

There are some very good recipes in this book, but a lot of them are kind of familiar if you cook a lot of squash. Beautiful photos and layout by one of my favorite publishers.

The Milepost is published every year in Alaska. It tells you everything you need to know about traveling there...which everyone should do at least once - and not on a cruise ship. Drive around the entire state with this book!!

This was a delightful book. It was a sweet story and I fell in love with Tippy as well as the human characters. Cal and Gina were opposites but they were just what each other needed. I laughed and cried while reading it, which is always a sign of a good book. I would definitely recommend it. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and was asked to write a review.

My kids have loved this book to death, so it needed to be replaced for my grandkids. I was excited to find it again! It took forever to get here, but I think that is because it was a being reprinted by the publisher.

The "Puppy" cupcakes alone is remarkable, but wait to you see the other creative ideas in this book. It's worth gracing the shelves of your library! There are also a few other books by this author that is worth purchasing, as well. If you're hesitant...visit the library first...then, purchase the book later. But, remember...OVERSTOCK.COM offers an excellent "discount" on the publisher's asking price!
