“A Lovely Companion to Their Storybook”

(Review written for 'The Friend Who Forgives Family Bible Devotional')

The story of Peter is one of the core relationships Jesus has in the gospels and is a big picture of the forgiveness that he offers to his followers. We have a copy of the storybook and loved it, so were really interested in the devotional that can go with it. The discussion questions are really helpful, a good level for our mid-primary school children, and the illustrations are brilliant too (Catalina Echeverri illustrates this whole series and they're superb).
It's the sort of book I could recommend to any of our families who come along to church, because it's a good level of detail for those children who have an understanding of the Bible story as a whole, but could also work as a standalone resource for those who are newer to faith.

“Excellent, High-Quality Devotional for Kids”

(Review written for 'The Friend Who Forgives Family Bible Devotional')

This family devotional book is designed to go with The Friend Who Forgives by Dan DeWitt. However, this works perfectly well as a standalone, as Katy Morgan takes readers through the biblical story of Jesus's friendship with Peter. This is a nice supplement to the storybook, but it is a completely independent resource that features fifteen devotional readings. Each one involves a scripted opening prayer, an icebreaker discussion prompt, a Bible passage and discussion questions about it, and a prompt for a closing prayer. The readings all include some optional, more complex questions for older children. There are also occasional activities like coloring pages and a wordsearch.

This is an exceptionally well-designed devotional. The discussion questions that Katy Morgan wrote are concise and practical, with some of them asking comprehension questions about the text and others prompting children to consider possible applications in their lives. The vibrant illustrations from Catalina Echeverri are expressive and appealing, and the coloring pages share black-and-white outlines of her drawings that kids can color in.

This is a great choice for family devotions, and the additional material for older children makes this a practical option for families with multiple kids spanning different ages. This is also an appealing, fun, and age-appropriate choice for an elementary-aged child to use for their personal devotions, and Sunday school teachers can adapt this to a classroom setting if desired. I am very impressed with this book's quality, and hope to see other devotionals in the future from the Tales That Tell the Truth series.

Note: I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
