Over the 6 years that I’ve been a mom, I’ve managed to accumulate children’s books on almost every imaginable theme. One that we are a little lean on is numbers. When I saw that Thomas Nelson was offering a counting devotional for littles, I was excited to sneak a little learning in for my youngest :).
Really Woolly: 12 Little Blessings is a cute padded board book for littles that you can use several different ways. The first twelve two-page spreads have a bible verse, a 4 line poem and a little prayer, which could be read each night. You could also just read the 4-line poems as if it were a regular book. At the end, each page has one of the blessings from 12 to one–i.e. 12 soaring birds, 11 fluttering butterflies, etc. These would be great counting pages. The very last page is a poem composed of rhyming couplets, that is fine to read on its own.
The illustrations are darling and fairly neutral. Intended for ages 3-7, I might buy it even younger than intended. My 6 year old daughter was less than impressed, but my 3 year old liked it well enough :). Since its a board book, I feel comfortable bringing it out sooner. As with most Thomas Nelson books, Really Woolly: 12 Little Blessings is of gift giving quality and would make a lovely addition to a small child’s Easter Basket.
