Children's Book Day

Did you know that April 2nd is Children's Book Day? When I heard about this day, I immediately thought about books I enjoyed as a child. I liked Dr. Suess books as well as Bible story books my mom brought me from her job at a Christian book store. I also liked activity books.

Today, I want to introduce you to a new author/friend, Kimberly Payne. She has a new children's activity book out called Trees of the Book. Even this "kid" found the stories, facts, and activities interesting and enjoyable.

Kimberley Payne is a motivational speaker and author. Kimberley has volunteered as a teacher in many children's programs at her church, as a teacher's aide for students' reading in the classroom, and within the library at her children's school. She works as an Elementary School Secretary for the Catholic School Board. She combines her teaching experience and her love of writing to create educational materials for children about family, fitness, science and faith.

Explore the Bible and learn from God’s creation. This entertaining and educational book offers children loads of fun. At the same time they’ll be learning about the Bible.

Inside its pages you’ll find:

·        Bible stories told from the viewpoint of the tree
·        Fast facts to help identify the specific tree
·        An activity to help reinforce the truth in the lesson
·        Challenging questions to support each story
·        Glossary and “People of the Bible” sections at the back of the book define words which are highlighted in bold
·        Project suggestions to enhance your learning

This engaging and instructive book is a colorful introduction to trees, leaves and their corresponding Bible stories. It’s ideal for 7 to 9 year olds, for home or school use and classroom sharing in grades 2/3 to supplement the Life Sciences Curriculum on Plant Life.

 Take a moment to check out this great resource. 

And, think back to the children's books you adored. Share some of them in the comments section.

How clever. I never thought of bible stories from the point of trees. I bet the tree Zacchaeus was in would have quite the story.
