Good Morning, God (TOS Crew Review)

As part of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I received a free copy of the children's book "Good Morning, God", published by Apologia Educational Ministries.

This book is designed for the parents to read aloud to their children ages one through eight.

The story is narrated by a young boy who narrates in a one week period how he encounters God in every day things, like eating, playing, learning, at church, etc. The text is based on Deuteronomy 6:5-7 which commands the parents to diligently teach their children to love God with everything they have and to remind them of this command daily and at all times.

At the end of each day, the little boy says a simple prayer thanking God for different things like family, creation, Jesus and the gift of heaven.

The book is beautifully illustrated and present very common situations that a young boy will experience in their day. There's even one picture that shows the boy in his "school room" at home...yeah! My boys were excited about that. :)

At the end of the book, there are daily devotionals with scriptures and well thought questions for family discussion.

The book can be read in one sitting or can be split to be read in a one week period. There are guidelines for parents included regarding how to best use this book at home.

I have to say that we LOVE this book. The boys were laughing at many of the illustrations and they could truly relate to the character. We did some of the devotionals as well and the questions are excellent and appropriate for kids five to eight years old.

If you are looking for a new book to emphasize spending time with God each day and learning how to love God with mind, soul, heart and strength, you should consider this book.

The book is available through the Apologia's website for $14.00 Here's the link to their online store. You can also see a sample chapter on this page.

If you would like to read what other families in the crew thought of "Good Morning, God" check out the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog.

Disclaimer: I received this book free of charge for the purpose of writing an honest review. No other compensation was received.
