"Good Morning, God" Review

Are you looking for a sweet picture book for your little ones?  You will want to have this one!  We recently got to review a beautiful hardback book from Apologia that is filled with a even more beautiful message.  God is there.  Always.  This book is absolutely precious.

The story is a little boy's prayers throughout the week as he goes about his daily activities.  Like most small children, he stays busy doing typical things, which he tells God all about- making a sandwich, coloring, reading, and playing.  He spends a lot of time thinking about God, and his parents teach him "while he is sitting and while he is standing...."  right out of Deuteronomy.  The young boy's thoughts are never far from God, whether he is being good or naughty.  This book has both color and pencil drawings, and they are quite sweet.  The pictures really complete the story, and they let you see what the rhythmic text leaves out.

There are just so many ways you could use this book, and there are several ideas included.  Designed for ages 1-8, There is a lot more here then just a story.  There is a page with ideas for "how to use this book", and in the back are lists of activities for each day, with questions and verses.  So far we have just read and enjoyed this book, but I plan to make this into a Five in a Row- type unit study, using the daily section for a starting place.  And, you know me, I will probably have to make lapbook pieces to go along with it.  If you do not do unit studies (or you are not ready to make your own),  you can always just read this like you would any other book.  Your children will love the story.  We read it 3 times in a row when it came out of the box, and they were asking for more!


You can buy "Good Morning, God" at Apologia Educational Ministries for $14.00, and they have an adorable little coloring book that goes along with it on this page.   This coloring book would be great to use with a more intensive study of the concepts in this book!  If you want to see more of Apologia Educational Ministries' products, you can visit their main website.
