5-Star Review of "Say and Pray Devotions"

Review of Say & Pray Devotions and Giveaway!!

First Words, Devotions, and Prayers

by Diane Stortz 

Illustrated by Sarah Ward


Say and Pray devotions with your little ones today! 

Your youngsters want to be just like you. How exciting! Help them grow in their faith and learn more about God’s love with Say & Pray Devotions

Say & Pray Devotions features short devotions and lots of labeled illustrations so your little one can practice identifying objects and words on their own! This book is a great tool to start a devotional time with little ones, as it will help you teach them about God, and the labeled pictures will help start a life of faith.

This is a nice complement to the bestselling Say & Pray Bible.

MY REVIEW:   Teaching children from birth on about God and Jesus is so important to me and most other Christians.  This board book is a delightful way to do just that. It can be used daily to let your children learn sight words, Bible verses, and short prayers.  The illustrations are colorful, simple, and appealing to young readers.  I shared this with children of varying ages from infants to older preschoolers and kindergartners, and they all enjoyed but the youngest children seemed to do better with reading just a few pages at a time.  I think this book would make a wonderful baby shower gift or birthday or Christmas gift for a little one in your life.  

I rated this book five stars.

I received this book as a gift and would highly recommend it to readers.

About the Author and Illustrator:

Born in Detroit and raised in Southern California, Diane Stortz has lived in Cincinnati, OH, since graduating from Arizona State University with a BA in journalism. For ten years she led the book group at Standard Publishing as editorial director.

Diane now runs Izzy's Office, where she edits books and writes for children and adults. Her goal: encouraging you to read, learn, love, and live God's Word, the Bible.

Izzy's Office is named for Diane's first house rabbit, Isabella. A petite Dutch rabbit named Pepe ruled the office for six years too. He liked to nudge her feet for attention when she was at her computer and (he thought) ignoring him.

Diane is married and has two married daughters and three grandsons. These days Diane devotes time to baby care rather than bunny care. Two baby boys joined the family this year!

When she's not writing or editing, Diane enjoys walking, gardening, and planning her next trip to visit her grandkids.
