    Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs Review | Multicultural Children's Book Day

    I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. Thoughts expressed are my own.

    There are many celebrations throughout the year, but only one supports and helps children see themselves in literary works–Multicultural Children’s Book Day! This year, Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017 is on January 27. It is in its fourth year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom. Its mission is to raise awareness on the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves while also working diligently to get more of these types of books into the hands of young readers, parents and educators.

    The days leading up to Christmas is exciting for both parents and children. A great way to keep children occupied and during those days is by filling the days with activities, crafts and, dare I say, baking? I have a long list of desserts I’m ready to make with the girls and have already started on daily Advent activities like learning songs, scriptures and the history of Christmas. My girls love to stay busy and often ask to make a craft. I’m not the most creative when it comes to crafting, but I had the simplest idea and answer to their latest crafting request–an easy manger craft made of popsicle sticks. This craft also sparked a discussion about the meaning of Christmas.

    My crafts are never fully thought out ahead of time. I am typically scrambling around to find items around the house that will get the job done because I’m no Pinterest queen.…

    A Devotional for Toddlers

    Recently I have shared a few devotionals with you–one for men, one for kids, and one for pre-teens. I only share these devotionals with you because I believe a Christ-centered family needs to have a dedicated time for learning more about God and the Scriptures. Having a great devotional provides structure during that time, which is great for all, especially new believers or new readers of the Bible. Say & Pray Devotions is yet another devotional that your family should have in its library. It is super cute and the perfect devotional for toddlers and young readers.…

    I remember, as a four year old, learning scriptures every week in a Sunday school class, taught by my aunt. There were posters hung up on the wall that included a scripture for each letter of the alphabet. We memorized each scripture and earned stickers when we could successfully recite them. Twenty plus years later, I amazingly remember the majority of those scriptures. …
