We loved reviewing this book/CD set! My children were beyond fascinated with the illustrations in the book as well as the audio cds that brought the book to life. I use many devotionals on my own as well as with my children. We also read devotions as a family each night. Sometimes I think it would be nice if all books come with an audio CD, it really opens the mind up to so much and you can watch your child's imagination go wild.
The devotional is very meaty but its not dry or it is more involved than what you would expect out of a children's devotional. My boys asked to look at, read and listen to the set many times. I love when a product like this does something in them that they just can't get enough. There are over a 100 daily snippets provided for our young, sweet children. The items provided are geared for ages 6-10, the deluxe set includes a hardcover book, as well as 2 CDs and comes in a handy enclosed boxed case. I think it would be a perfect gift but I'm also thinking of sharing it with my Sunday School class that I teach.
