Not Too Small At All: A Mouse Tale and All God's Children

I had the opportunity to review 2 children's books from New Leaf Publishing Group. Here's some info on each book and what I thought of them.

Not Too Small At All: A Mouse Tale by Stephanie Z. Townsend

Book Description: Little ones have a very special place in God’s Kingdom uniquely their own. Enjoy the delightful story of a young mouse who learns this important faith message!

What is God’s purpose for me? It’s something everyone wonders about, even small children. With a world that is so big all around them, young children can be overwhelmed by the thought of trying to accomplish anything. Follow the charming story of Grandpa Mouse’s journey to the ark as children see how they too can accomplish big things despite (or even because of!) their small size.

I thought this was a cute book where the Grandpa Mouse tells the story of Noah's Ark and discovers how even though he's small, he can do things that are important. It's a huge thing for me to provide my boys with self-confidence and the knowledge of who they are to God and I thought this book was really cute for that. It's perfect for Asher's age (4) and even something Riley (7 1/2) can enjoy too! The illustrations in the book are just adorable too.

All God's Children by Ken Ham

Book Description:A unique and interactive book kids will love! • Book is easy for kids to handle and uses easy-to-read rhymes • Book is die-cut in the shape of the children. • Beautiful full-color illustrations of children from different nations, each dressed in their native clothing. • Bible references are included for parents who want to “dig deeper.” • The rhyming text, the shape, and colorful design of the book will appeal to children; the biblical doctrine will appeal to parents. • Features children from China, Africa, Russia, Mexico, Australia, Fiji, India; and includes American Indian, Eskimo, Arab, and Caucasian children Children are full of questions and, thankfully, the Bible is full of answers. One question that sometimes puzzles even adults is “Why are there different races of people?” or it might be worded “Where did the races come from?” This beautiful cutout children’s book explains the answer to this question in a rhyming text that every age can understand. According to the Bible, there are no “races” - there is only one race: the human race. We are all descended from Adam and Eve, and this book tells the story of how the race began with them, and how and why the diversity came later. This wonderful, biblically correct story will be a favorite of children everywhere.

I really liked this book for a few's an easy read and easy for kids to understand, the detailed pictures of the kids are interesting for my kids to look at, there is a little globe on each page that shows the location of where in the world that particular child is from, and the Bible references allow you to look into the Word with your children and show them that we can know what the book says is true because it says so in the Bible. Great, easy to understand book to teach your children (and maybe even yourself) about the people in different parts of the world! The fact that it is a sturdy board book is nice too, because it will stand up well for younger kids who are sure to want to look at it over and over.
