God Loves Me, My First Bible
By Susan Elizabeth Beck , Lisa Mallett
The children came to Jesus

He blessed them, and he said a prayer
To keep them from all harm.
It’s never too early for little ones and toddlers to learn that—“God loves me!”
The God Loves Me, My First Bible contains simple, rhyming verses about Bible characters and important lessons about God’s love for his children. Parents and children will enjoy reading each story that emphasizes the overriding theme of the Bible: God loves his world, his people, and me!
Cassandra's Review- A cute twist on an old book but in a good way because it will relate to younger ages and help them understand in an easier way.

He made and blessed this whole wide world,
All creatures great and small.

Day Dreams And Movie Screens
By Alena Pitts , Wynter Pitts
Eleven-year-old Lena Daniels’ summer of Hollywood starlets and movie filming alongside her favorite singer, Mallory Winston, is over. School will be back in full swing, and it seems as though life might just pick up where it left off—with volleyball games, homework, and her best friends.
But just as she begins to wonder if her summer was all just a dream, her world is turned upside down . . . again! The movie Above the Waters premiers, the previews seem to be splattered on every television and radio channel, and everyone knows her name. Her classmates, strangers, and even her friends are starting to treat her differently, and everywhere she turns she’s being asked for an autograph, a picture, or a hug.
Lena is just figuring out how to manage her new fame at home when she finds out she's hitting the road on a two-week bus tour to further promote the film. Traveling across the country with Mallory and her band—with the surprise addition of her whole family joining them for a week—Lena experiences adventures and challenges she never expected, while learning to step outside of her comfort zone and follow the path God has for her life. She learns that saying yes to God may not always be easy, but will take her further than she ever imagined!
This Faithgirlz series titled Lena in the Spotlight, written by Alena Pitts, star of The War Room and tween blogger of For Girls Like You, and co-written with her mother, editor and author, Wynter Pitts, is a reflection of Alena’s own life experiences as she reaches for the stars and keeps her faith in balance.
Cassandra's review- Even though this is great for girls, anyone can read the book and bond with the story.
I received complimentary copies.
