Children's Nonfiction Book Review: Think, Act, Be Like Jesus: A Believe Devotional for Kids by Randy Frazee

Book Description:
This 90-Day devotional, written by Oak Hills Church pastor Randy Frazee, is part of the church-wide Believe campaign and encourages children to follow the footsteps of Jesus. Think, Act, Be Like Jesus; A Believe Devotional for Kids shares the message that the more you believe, the more Jesus can change you from the inside out to become the best person you can be.

My Review:
This a great devotional book for tweens and teens. I like the layout that shares a scripture, story and explanation, and a prayer. Each devotion ends with a positive action that encourages the reader to show their love for Jesus. Steve Adams' illustrations are interesting and give a good reflection of each theme. The book is divided into sections that offer enough writings to help the reader understand each concept. This would make a great Christmas gift. And could be used for family devotions.

I received this book in exchange for a fair review.

Best Hair Book Ever!
Book description:
We’ve all had bad hair days—be it hair that won’t curl or is way too curly, a cut that won’t grow out fast enough, or a do that just feels like an absolute don’t even after hours of pinning and spraying. But we have good news for you. Inside Best Hair Book Ever! are killer tricks and tips on having amazing hair every day, from the best cut for your lovely locks to simple-yet-stunning updos and gorgeous styles, and even the secrets guaranteed to make your hair behave. So put down that straightening iron and pick up this book! -From the editors of Faithgirlz and Girls' Life magazine.

My review:
This entertaining hair book for tweens and teens is filled with tips and tricks to have a good hair day every day. Along with instructions on braiding and styling, the authors encourage girls to embrace the hair God gave them. Whether curly, straight, thick or fine, there are ideas for every young lady. I like the pages that explain the different hair types and face shapes that show the reader the best ideas for them. Rather than focusing on looking sexy, the Best Hair Book Ever! shows girls how to have healthy hair that fits their lifestyle. This is a fun book for moms and daughters to share. Keep it in mind as a great Christmas gift bundled with some cute hair accessories.
