It's just perfect for my boys (almost 3 and almost 5), the length, the illustrations and the topics.
The book covers behaviors (right and wrong) for children to learn what the Bible says about that and for them to determine if it's a right or wrong choice to make.
We've been reading this one before bedtime and it seems like every night the topic fits just right with attitudes the boys are experiencing and things we are teaching them!
I love that it shows little children that the Bible CAN speak to their everyday situations and they can learn from it a lot.
The books ends with an entry on how sometimes we make wrong choices but that God has provided a way for us through Jesus Christ to make it right.
This one is moving to my top choices for books to give away to preschoolers.

Another dictation was Mrs. Bear's preparation list. We also glued an envelope to keep all the Valentine's they received inside!
Inside the red book we glued our chart from the counting lesson.

The first opening shows John 3:16 and the word "valentine" spelled. The bottom matchbox have 1John 4:7-11. We read this passage several times during Valentine's Day week and Caleb memorized verses 10 & 11.
This time I wanted to try having Caleb dictate to me answers (since his writing is not there yet) and I would copy them for him into our lapbook. We did a few of these dictations and Caleb enjoyed very much to see his words written out.
Loved this add-on from the HSS lesson! Vocabulary words with pictures. We talked about what a synonym is.

Our trip here was very long. We missed our original flight, had to take another 2 hours to Boston, wait there 3 hours, then take another 5 hours flight to San Juan.
When we arrived in San Juan our luggage had arrived in our original flight at 2:44pm (it was now 9:30 pm) but the baggage claim office was closed for the day.
So we went to our car rental company, got our van and drove another 2 hours to my mom's house in Aguadilla. Arrived there past midnight.
Next day Friday we drove back to San Juan to get our luggage. Thank God everything was there!
We officially started our vacation on Saturday. ;-)

7 Random Things About Me
#1 As a child I wanted to be an astronaut and a translator to the United Nations...I did manage as an adult to become bilingual (working on a third one) and I do "space out" a lot these days.
# 2 I LOVE to make lists and schedules....I rarely follow them.
#3 Music is a HUGE part of my life....but I am not a hard core fan of any band, singer, style of music. I have a new favorite all the time.
#4 I've experienced 2 huge hurricanes in my life....very scary!
#5 I am a dreamer...so is my husband.
#6 I am guilty of "yo-yo" diets....in the past 4 years I've gone up and down and back again 5 different sizes.
#7 Noise really bothers me...I cannot concentrate when there's too much noise...ironically I talk loud and laugh loud. ;-)
Ok....here it goes... I tag...HEATHER, JENNIFER, KATE, CELIA, ERICA, JANELLE, LISA

They worked hard searching for the right size of "branch-arms" & "acorn-face". And for the final touch...let's spray the snowman with colored water to make sure that it sticks out from all of the snow around it.
What you cannot see too well on this pictures is that there is a huge footprint on the right side of the snowman...that's because he is only around 8 inches tall!! hehehe
