My son has been using this for a couple of weeks now and seems to be learning and thinking as he goes through different bible passages. This is a devotional written for BOYS. It is very much geared that way.
I have to admit, that the meaning author is not always what I would take, and sometimes the context is lost in the focus on the verse. But the lad is thinking and this is a good thing.
So what do you get? You get a book that encourages children to draw and write what they think a passage means and how it affects them. Large writing in simplified language. Each devotional is a two page spread. One side introduces the passage or verse with verse focused on written out. Then a short "this is what it means" writing is given. The next page starts with "what if..." Then instruction to draw or write what that means or how it affects the child is given.
My recommendation: Since I help my son find the bible passage, and I help him read it when he can't, it gives me a chance to talk with him about it, and then to be a sounding board when necessary. I don't mind that the explanation of the passage sometimes misses what I see as the point (it's an issue I struggle with, with most devotionals). But my son is thinking and learning, and THAT is what is most important for his first "on his own devotions".
