Goodnight, Ark by Laura Sassi

A fun goodnight book!
This was a cute bedtime book. My kids loved the pictures of how all the animals come onto the ark and group by group get scared and try to get in bed with Noah until his bed crashes. There isn't a lesson on where Noah's family is or anything to do why they are on the ark. This is just a fun story of the animals getting into bed during the storm and in the end the animals are sleeping and Noah is awake. It is nice to see cute stories with a bible reference of Noah. My kids loved the creaky, boom, pop, type words that were in the story and how they rhymed. It is a big story book with a matching papercover. I don't see the cover lasting long, but the book is super cute! They wanted me to read it again right after I read it the first time. I would recomend this book as a gift or just for a young person. This book was given by the BookLook blogger reading program in return for my honest review.

Leaving my comfort zone with my new Kindergartener...

My 5 year old is about to leave the comfort zone of his Christian school. He won't get a daily lesson or Jesus praise party. This saddens this moms heart. I know we are to live out:
Deuteronomy 11:18-19 (Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds: tie them as symbols on you rhands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about hem when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.)
Now these verses mean more to me than ever. It has always been my goal, but my son would initiate alot from whta he was learning at school. Now we face public school and regular daycare. I know my battle with the world with my lil' guy is about to strengthen. I have to put on my battle shoes and get ready. I pray he finds good Christian friends and can stay strong against the holds of this world.
Let the journey begin...
