Last month, when I was busy ordering bibles as a gift to our church youth who graduated in college, I found this book called One Year Devotions for Preschoolers: Grow with God.
OMF Literature Incorporated published this book for Hiyas here in the Philippines. One Year Devotions for Preschoolers: Grow with God is designed for kids ages 6 and below. For parents who are starting to teach their toddlers to know more about God, this is a perfect tool! This book teaches children the importance of seeking His words daily.
Priced at Php 450, I had second thoughts on purchasing the book. I couldn’t decide whether I should buy it or wait for my next pay. Later on, I decided to buy it for Nate’s birthday present. Guess what, I never regretted ordering it, this book is wonderful!

EASY TO READ
Grow with God is written using the simplest words to help kids understand the daily devotions. Just like the Our Daily Bread devotional books, Grow with God begins its reflection with a bible verse.
It makes reading and explaining super easy!
Nate understands English and Tagalog but whenever we read this, I still explain it in Tagalog to make sure he understands as Tagalog is his mother tongue. This does not just help him know God deeper, it also helps him learn how to read all the more.
At 4, Nate is a good reader, he can read so many words already. However, there are still words in this book that are new to him so it also helps improve his vocab.
We all know how important illustrations are for children’s books. The pages have visually appealing illustrations that make each devotional experience come alive. Thanks to illustrator Elena Kucharik, a well-known Care Bears.
I love each drawing – it makes explaining much easier and it also stimulates more questions. Especially when Nate’s curiosity begins to kick in – now I had to relate each drawing to the devotion. LOL!
BIBLE PROMISES OR TRUTH
Each day features Bible promises or truth, a short devotional based on an age-appropriate theme. Nate starts learning more about the attributes of God. And at an early age, He already knows that no matter what happens, God will never forsake him. Also, that God will love Him with a love that’s even greater than his parents’. Each devotion ends with a rhyme that makes the learning even more fun.
This devotional is a lively adventure-a walk through the Bible. Our kids can discover for themselves who God is, his many rich promises, and how those promises relate to us today. It isn’t just beneficial for Nate, it serves as a reminder to me also, so both of us benefits from this.
Nate and I both love this book! It’s another way for us to bond – through His word, daily. This was ordered online via passagesbooks.com
