Lays a kiss upon your nose.

Ready, Set, Find Noah's Ark

Noah has an important job. He needs to build a huge ark and fill it with animals too. Now there are things and animals along the way he needs your help to find, like the hammer, the hen, and the hedgehog. Are you ready to help Noah? If so, on your mark, Ready, Set, Find! Read the classic story of Noah’s Ark in this engaging look-and-find book for young children.

Cassandra's review- I actually read this book first in a deeper voice and then is a silly voice for the different sections, and the kids has a blast not only trying to find the pictures but hearing the story out loud.  

9780310759898, The Beginner's Bible Daniel and the Hungry Lions
The Beginner's Bible Daniel And The Hungry Lions

The Beginner’s Bible® has been a favorite with young children and their parents since its release in 1989 with over 25 million products sold.

Daniel is in trouble! He’s disobeyed the king and is facing down a cave of hungry lions. But Daniel knows God is on his side, and he is not afraid. This retelling of the story of Daniel and the lions will show little ones how trusting in God will keep them safe and sound. Featuring brand-new art from the beloved The Beginner’s Bible, a die-cut format, and a beautiful foiled cover, parents will love sharing this board book with their children.

Cassandra's review-  A very short read which is perfect for little ones that can not sit through a longer version and this has a great message added in that religious families will enjoy sharing.

9780310755371, The Beginner's Bible My First Book of Prayers
The Beginner's Bible My First Book Of Prayers

The Beginner’s Bible® has been a favorite with young children and their parents since its release in 1989 with over 25 million products sold.

The Beginner's Bible My First Book of Prayers helps young children discover that they can talk to God about anything from the beauty of creation to their friendships and emotions. Thankfulness, praise, and requests for God's help are all included.

Sixteen sweet prayers, written with the child's daily experiences in mind, focus on important character traits such as caring and forgiveness. For each prayer, charming illustrations from The Beginner's Bible highlight a different Bible character or scene that illustrates the truth found in the prayer. Ideal gift for a new parent or young child, and a great addition to church or daycare library.

Cassandra's Review- The books you share with your children no matter what age, can mean all the difference in the way your family grows.   If you choose to believe in God and raise your child in the faith, this book is going to be a great resource.  While any age can learn from it, it is geared to help younger children to understand and follow.

9780310759058, In 27 Days, Alison Gervais

In 27 Days
By Alison Gervais

Hadley Jamison is shocked when she hears that her classmate, Archer Morales, has committed suicide. She didn’t know the quiet, reserved guy very well, but that doesn’t stop her from feeling there was something she could have done to help him. Hoping to find some sense of closure, Hadley attends Archer’s funeral. There, Hadley is approached by a man who calls himself Death and offers her a deal. If Hadley accepts, she will be sent back 27 days in time to prevent Archer from killing himself. But when Hadley agrees to Death’s terms and goes back to right the past, she quickly learns her mission is harder than she ever could have known.

Hadley soon discovers Archer’s reasons for being alone, and Archer realizes that having someone to confide in isn’t as bad as he’d always thought. But when a series of dangerous accidents starts pushing them apart, Hadley must decide whether she is ready to risk everything—including her life—to keep Archer safe.

From award-winning Wattpad author Alison Gervais (HonorInTheRain) comes In 27 Days, a story of redemption, first love, and the strength it takes to change the future.

In 27 Days features a striking cover with embossing.


Watty Award-winning author Alison Gervais has been writing for as long as she can remember. In 2011, she began posting her work on Wattpad . com and has been active on the site ever since. If she's not writing, she can be found re-reading Harry Potter, watching Supernatural, or trying to win the affection of her two cats, Kovu and Rocket.

Cassandra's Review-  I felt this book is not for younger readers and as the topic is so strong, real and very much a problem today, I would suggest young adults or adults read it.    The message is strong and the story is so mixed with emotion that the reader could easily be swept up.

I received complimentary copies of all of the featured books.
