My 11 Year Old’s Opinion of 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids
This was my son’s favorite devotion page from 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids. He thought, “It’s interesting that the first person to recognize Jesus was an unborn baby.” It was neat that he picked this page as his favorite, because it’s also one of my favorites. I just think it’s so awesome how much a baby does while it’s growing in the womb!
My son said he liked this book overall because, “It’s interesting and makes me think.” I’m glad that’s why he liked it and I’m sure the author would be glad too. Part of her reason for writing this book was “to help extra-curious kids dig deeper.”
My Opinion of 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids
From the very beginning, it’s clear that this book was written with kids in mind. Instead of an intro. written to the parents, like in most kids books, this one starts with a letter to the reader. The reader is the kids! The author writes the letter to tell them more about what they’re going to learn in this book. She suggests to them when it would be a good time to read it, and goes into details about how the book is structured. One of my favorite things is that she tells them it’s okay to skip a day or more because, “God is patiently waiting for you.” My other favorite part is her “P.S.” where she tells the kids she’s praying for them. How nice to have a devotional written by an author who genuinely cares about her readers!
Each day of the devotional starts with a question. It’s a question that kids usually ask.
Under the question is a verse that gives the answer to that question.
Then, there’s the devotion which explains in more detail, the answer to the question.
After that, is a prayer. I usually read all the above to my son (even though he can read, I cherish the fact that he’ll still let me read to him at night). He likes to pray the prayer.
On some of the days, there’s a “Want to know more” at the end. It directs the kids to another day where there’s a related question. That way if they’re still curious and want more of an answer, they know where to look.
This was another one of my favorite pages from 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids. I love singing, so the fact that Mary’s response to Elizabeth is a beautiful praise song, is just awesome! Anytime I need to cry out to God, either in praise or despair, I like to sing. So, I totally understand why Mary had to do the same thing.
At the very end of the book, is an “Index of Questions.” It is organized by topic. For example, one of the topics is “Time.” Under that heading are the questions in the book that relate to time, along with the day of the devotion. I think this is really neat because if a kid is curious about a certain subject, they can use the index to look it up.
