REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: One Sentence Storybooks [Giveaway CLOSED]

 Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of 
this book set for the purpose of this review.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY has a new book set for young children (recommended age range of 3-5), written by Nancy Sanders, called  "ONE SENTENCE STORYBOOKS - Bible Favorites. " It is a great little product for parents to share with their young ones who are pre-readers, or beginning readers.

Have you seen the BOB BOOKS series for beginning readers? Well, the One Sentence Storybooks remind me of those in some ways, except they are more colorful, and are based on popular Bible stories. The book set includes 10 small paperback books enclosed in a little cardboard box. Each book has simple words. They start with one or two words, then build on those to make one complete sentence. Then, at the end of each book, parents can read:
  • One Truth to Learn
  • One verse to Say
  • One Prayer to Pray
And, on the very last page are instructions for ways to interact with your child through the book. For example:  Point to something white, find two circles, read the word that starts with the same sound as "home."

If I still had young children, I would be excited to share this book set with them. I did go ahead and let my 12 year old read the books to see what he thought and, although he is too old for them, he did say they were "pretty cool." 

Since my kids really won't be needing these books at this stage, I would like to give my set away to someone who can use them. So, if you are interested in this set, please enter your name and e-mail address in the box below. Giveaway ends on Saturday, January 31, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. CST.
