Oh, wouldn’t the world be so much more amazing if we all took the time each day to remember all the abundant blessings we have? We get so caught up in the trials and the trivial irritations that we forget just how much God has given us.
I long to help my children not make this same mistake as often as I do. If we only take the time to really look at all that surrounds us, we can’t help but bear witness to God’s goodness and graciousness towards us. Having that as a daily reminder can help anyone get through the tough times of life. I pray that I can set a better example in this arena and show them that living a full and meaningful life means appreciating what really matters.
In Really Woolly: 12 Little Blessings by Bonnie Rickner Jensen, young children are presented with twelve simple blessings that God has given us. Using simple rhymes, this 40 page board book made just the right size for little hands showcases the simple blessings that are around us every day like how God always cares for us, provides for us, gives us rest, and more.
Each two page spread features a Bible verse, a rhyming blessing, and a simple prayer that is perfect for young ones. The illustrations are fun, whimsical, and appealing to children and include the sweet Really Woolly lambs and friends.
On top of all of that, this book is a great way to help teach your child how to count to twelve. Every blessing contains a specific number and children can point and count the designated animals to their heart’s content. What better way to get them counting and to encourage number recognition than to weave it in with God’s Word and lessons?
Retailing for only $7.99, this sweet book would make a great addition to Easter baskets this year!
