whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

REVIEW:  We were asked to have our kids to help review this book.  Since my boys were in the target age range, I thought they would enjoy it.  Unfortunately, no matter how much I tried to entice them to check it out, they refused.  They loved the jokes and tongue twisters, but did not want to draw.  Since we spend a lot of time at the softball fields, I brought it with me to some practices, hoping they would try it out.  They still were not interested but, when asked, another little boy looked at it.  He had fun drawing the pictures and loved the jokes.  The suggestions about what could be drawn on the bottom of the page helped his mom and me give him ideas.  He even asked if he could play with it at a couple of practices. 
     Even though my kids were not interested in it, I think this book is a wonderful idea.  It's size is perfect to drop in a purse, diaper bag or toy bag.  I'm always looking for something to help drive away the boredom when we go places and this is one I plan to keep with me, if not for my kids, maybe some of the others we are around.
