Review: God's Promises ... For Girls by Jack Countryman & Amy Parker

Thanks to BookSneeze I got to review God's Promises...for Girls... by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker, Illustrations by Rachelle Miller.

This is a children's religious gift book. That is what it is supposed to be. There are verses from the Children's Bible on when you are lonely, angry, sick, etc. They are trying to get the message across that through any fears, feelings, any of these things, you are never alone. That God is always with you and won't leave you.

I think the message is clear if you are a girl of 12 or older. I do not think this is a book for an actual girl. I think if I had been given this as a little girl, I would have found it as confusing, as the actual Bible. The illustrations are beautiful, as are the messages, I just don't feel is it for girls. Maybe 10 and up, but that is as low as I think it could go and those are for exceptional girls who really think. This is not a children's book as much as the author may have wanted it to be. Children need thinks broken down into even simpler ideas. These were thoughts, I, as an adult, found inspirational. I would recommend it for other people, just not children.

Sounds and looks like a cute religous book for pre-teens, as you said.

The thing is though, sometimes children are more intelligent than people give them credit for. And you could find that what you don't feel that a child could understand, he or she actually could. I'm not saying your wrong or anything - after all, I haven't read the book, and probably never will - but just saying.
