MY TIDBITS

The sweet rhymes bring across many precious moments kids spend with their grandmother, be it hiking, eating ice cream, sick in bed or going to sleep.

This is a small and stout board book, just right for younger listeners hands. The pages are sturdy and allow for many flips and flops as kids search and discover moments they will recognize from their own lives. Grandmothers take center stage as young listeners visit all of the things they can experience with their grandmas. Some are fun, some quiet and caring, while other experiences come when she simply dries tears.

Each page holds a small rhyme. The topic is written clearly at the top and decorated with lovely flowers. There's a simple Bible verse on each two-page spread which relates to the rhymes. The illustrations care done with the well-known, Precious Moments' style. They offer enough details for young listeners to easily understand what is happening and grasp the emotions involved.

It's a sweet read and a wonderful homage to grandmothers, while still remembering how they help strengthen the faith and are a part of God's blessings.

I received a complimentary copy through Booklook Bloggers.

  1. How adorable is this! My little sister collected Precious Moments figures when we were younger (she has a couple dozen of them by now, I think). I didn't know there were any Precious Moments books but I'll be looking for them for my littles now :)
