Review: I Can Learn the Bible by Holly Shivers

In this 52-week devotional for children, author Holly Hawkins Shivers adapts The Joshua Code (written by her father, O.S. Hawkins) into a devotional that will help kids learn and live the scriptures. Using kid-friendly language, I Can Learn the Bible teaches scriptures in a way children can understand. Each week, kids will commit a new scripture to memory by reading a fun, engaging devotional that’s doable for a child. Matthew 7:7 will remind kids to always ask God for help. Philippians 1:6 will teach them that God is always working in their lives. And 50 more scriptures will continue to write the truth on their hearts so that they will remember it forever.

I got this devotional to do with my 4 year old daughter, but it was actually a little too above her.  It was fabulous for my 8 year old son.  Although it says that it is recommended for ages 4-8, I would say that it leans toward the older ages more than preschoolers.  

That being said, it is a wonderful book and a great way to get kids interested in reading the Bible.  I also loved the emphasis in learning verses and the repetition of “God’s Word is FOR ME and TO ME, it is IN ME and working THROUGH ME, and just like His love, it goes on and on forever!”  If you are interested in an inexpensive devotional book for early elementary schoolers, this would be a great choice!
