The dictionary defines creative as: cre·a·tive 1. having the quality or power of creating. 2. resulting from originality of thought, expression, etc.; imaginative: creative writing. 3. originative; productive (usually fol. by of). 4. Facetious. using or creating exaggerated or skewed data, information, etc.: creative bookkeeping.

Who Are You? - A Little Book About Your Big Identity

Releasing today!

Three things I really like about this book: the important topic of where our identity is found, the additional ideas, activities and Bible verses included at the end to assist caregivers in teaching kids even more beyond the book, and the illustrations depict a variety of children including ones with needs such as wheelchairs or glasses.

Christina Fox addresses the issue of where our identity lies in a simple manner and yet with a far-reaching goal. It begins with the questions – “Who are you? What really makes you…you?” This book teaches kids their identity is not found in what they can or cannot do, the things they have or like, what others say, or even how they feel. Who we are is grounded in our relationship with God. He created us to be His child and reflect His love. The author briefly includes the Gospel message along with God creating us in His image.

The repetitive question, “Is that what makes you, you?” will stick with the reader beyond the read and help them see not only their own special identity, but that everyone they meet has been uniquely created by God too. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this for my grandkids!

Thank you to NetGalley and Crossway Publishing for the advanced copy to review with my honest impressions.

Helping Littles Not Be Afraid

Hoo’s There? by Kristi Valiant is a fun, short read perfect to help small children deal with being scared at night. But it is also…so much more!

This little board book gives a great model of friendship! The cute characters, an owl and a pig, demonstrate it’s okay to share how you feel with others; we don’t have to face our fears alone. They find a way to work together and solve the problem of the mystery monster.

The fun rhyming words, synonyms, and lots of sound words (onomatopoeia) are great to build a child’s vocabulary. This makes it a wonderful book for little ones to grow with. I really like how the author has many of these words stand out with varying colors, fonts and placement on the pages. As you read aloud, you can use your finger to follow the words moving across the pages; in this way, it will help little ones develop text awareness which is a pre-reading skill.

The illustrations are bright, colorful and whimsical. Kids will enjoy pointing out fun objects and colors or using their fingers to follow the delightful characters of Hampton and Figgy through to the end of the book! Don’t miss one other fun element Kristi includes in her recent books: keep your eyes open for a mouse, a penguin and a hippo!

I was surprised the book didn’t have any mention of God since it is from a well-known Christian publisher, but it certainly sets a fun stage for parents to begin a spiritual discussion and include an added Bible verse such as Isaiah 41:10: “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand” (CSB).

All in all, this is a delightful read that offers plenty of learning too. Thank you to NetGalley and Tommy Nelson Publishing for the advanced copy to review with my honest impressions.
