Read in February, 2012 — I own a copy
A few years ago I first discovered the fun and amusing illustrations and devotions of Phil A. Smouse in My Everyday Promise Bible subtitle: 365 Promises for Little Hearts. This year you can rediscover all that in a fresh reprint. While the Promise Bible was hardcover with a ribbon, the 365 Bible Promises for Little Hearts: Encouraging, Character-Building Thoughts for Kids Ages 3 to 7 is a great hand-size paperback. Considering the pages are numbered (“Day 52”) there is no real need for the ribbon anyway… While the main interior text and concept is the same, there are some great new benefits to this edition.
This 2012 Bible Promises book is available in eBook format as well as this awesome little paperback. It is also printed in the United States as opposed to India like the one before. That is a major plus to me. Maybe I’m being silly, but another thing that I like is that this book is called 365 Bible Promises – it immediately tells me that it is a devotional while with the former being called My Everyday Promise Bible makes me feel like it should have been more than just devotional. Overall, I definitely think you could be pleased with this one added to your child’s shelf.
