Then I Think of God by Martha Whitmore Hickman

Recommendation: Highly Recommended
Everyday events are ordinary, but the children in this book have been taught to see and think of an extraordinary God, in the ordinary events of a day. This book provides a valuable tool as parents train their children to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.
Positives: Besides the content of the book, I also enjoyed the multi-cultural representation in the paintings.
Negatives: None
Talking Points: The Scripture that immediately came to mind was from Deut. 6:4-9. This book provides an excellent example of this Scripture – teaching and talking of God through every activity in the day. It provides an excellent question to ask your children – When do you think of God?  Ask your children often and when you see something that makes you think of God – share it with your children.
Age Level: 4-8 years old
