My eyes filled with tears as I turned page after page of Kayla Jarmon's Don't Forget Me, a beautiful look at pregnancy from the baby's perspective. What a tender look at God's love and heart to be close to the boys and girls He knits together in their mother's womb.
Starting at conception, the story follows the conversations between the developing baby and God. The baby hears his mother and his father and can't wait to meet them. He gets bigger and bigger, feeling rather squished.
God continually reminds the baby not to forget Him. This beautiful, yet so simple, picture of God's tender love toward people moved me emotionally every time I read the story, which ends at the baby's birth.
I think this book will be especially enjoyed by kindergartners and elementary school children. But, children and adults of all ages will find the book delightful. Part of her Discussion Book series, this book opens the door for heartfelt conversations with your children about issues that can be awkward to discuss like birth and death. The other book so far in this series is Dying is Part of This World.

I was so excited to read Heroes of History: Meriwether Lewis by Janet & Geoff Benge, but even more excited that there was a unit study study guide to go along with it! Meriwether Lewis is part of YWAM Publishing's Heroes of History series. I love to learn about history with my children and grandchildren!
Meriwether Lewis had a cool, clear head even as a youngster. It almost seemed he was born for adventure.
As a young man, Meriwether Lewis found himself in the enviable position of Private Secretary to President Thomas Jefferson. When the President decided to explore the Louisiana Territory, he was hoping to purchase from France, the two of them brainstormed together. All the while, Meriwether was hoping that President Jefferson would choose him to lead the expedition. And he did!
The book took us along with Lewis, Clark, and the Discovery Corps on one adventure after another. From delays and Indian attacks to grizzly bear encounters and treacherous terrain, these brave men and their sweet friend Sacajawea faced danger with bravery.
I learned so many things reading the book that I never knew before:
Heroes of History Meriwether Lewis by Janet & Geoff Benge was well-written, exciting, and full of information. We learned so much! We had so much fun!
It wasn't enough to just read the book; we wanted to explore hands-on learning activities, too. That's where the Hereos of History Meriwether Lewis Unit Study Curriculum Guide came in handy.
