These past two months have been busy with requests to review books and movies, but as a former children’s church director, I always enjoy checking out children’s products. 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is written as a devotional journal for children on their own, but would also make a great resource for children’s teachers or homeschoolers.

365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids book review

In 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids questions about God, the Bible, and faith are answered in a way that points children to God’s plan and His love. In addition to faith topics, this devotional addresses topics such as Christian traditions, the historic growth of Christianity, how to become a Christian, and what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. An index of questions includes the following topics: time; God; God’s promises; Jesus; God’s Holy Spirit; the Bible; the Old Testament; the New Testament; Christianity; prayer; the Church; Christian seasons, holidays, and traditions; being a Christian here and now; and eternity. Each devotion is written so that it can be read and enjoyed on its own at any time, and many include a “Want to know more?” cross-referencing section at the bottom of the devotional for the extra-curious child who wants to learn more. At the end of the book, a special section called “My Notes and Prayers” offers several lined pages for the young reader to write his or her thoughts and prayers.

I love the concept of the book and would definitely use it for children’s ministry, My only concern is the cover art is very cute, but gives the impression that it’s for young children. However, some of the questions are far deeper than any children I know.   That’s why I feel it might work best to work through it together as a class or family. This would be great to use in homeschool or a Christian school classroom, starting the day off with the question of the day. This is definitely a conversation starter and I can see it encouraging children to research and learn more on their own.
