Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers (Book Review)

Shortly before Christmas,  I won a couple of children's books from New Leaf Press. I gave them to the kids for Christmas, and they have been requested over and over again.
Both books were a part of the Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers series, and were written by Joey Allen. The books are aimed at children ages 4-7, and retail for $5.99.
Both hardcover books consist of biblical truths about the given topic, with scriptural references throughout. The illustrations are just silly enough to get an occasional giggle, without being distracting.

The Gospel (Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers)

The first book was called 'The Gospel." It explains salvation in a way that even little kids can understand. Since reading it, two year old V has been telling us and her dolls "the good news" that "Jesus loves us." I think she got the message.

Big Thoughts For Little Thinkers: The Trinity

The second book was "The Trinity." This one was my favorite, probably because it's a sort of hard concept to explain, and I felt I'd done an unsatisfactory job of it in the past. It has sparked several discussions with five year old L about the nature of the Trinity, and apparently cleared up some misconceptions that he had.
I thought these were sweet little books, and will be keeping an eye out for others in the series.
(I know it's pretty early to even be thinking about such things, but these books would make an especially nice, meaningful addition to an Easter basket...)

Disclosure: I won these books in a Twitter giveaway, and was under no obligation to post a review. I'm sharing them because I like them. No compensation was provided, and the opinions expressed are my own. The Amazon links are affiliate links.
