I love to read with my children. There is just nothing like cuddling with one of the little boys and sharing a book. We read the same books over and over. When they choose a favorite they don't tire of it easily. One of those that Dad and I will be reading frequently is Good Morning, God.
Good Morning, God is written by Davis Carman and Illustrated by Alice Ratterree. The first time I read it to MT he was captivated by the illustrations. They alternate between black and white pencil drawings and full color artwork. The book is simply beautiful.
The book is written to cover each day in a week, beginning and ending with Sunday. Good Morning, God is wonderful to share with your children as a simple bedtime book, but it can be much more as well. The front of the book has a page of suggestions for how to use this book. At the end of the book are questions and activities for each day of the week. There are activities appropriate for ages 1-8 years ranging from drawing a picture or reading scripture to simple discussion questions.
You don't need anything else to enjoy this book, but your children might enjoy the coloring book Apologia Press has created to go with it. It is $4.00 and you can find it by clicking here.
Good Morning, God is available through the Apologia Press website. It is a sturdy, lovely, hard cover edition priced at $14.00.
