Good Morning, God
Apologia Press is known for publishing such things as the Exploring Creation... series of science books and their Apologia Academy online.
But did you know that also publish picture books for younger children?
Good Morning, God, by Davis Carman, is one such picture book, available in hardcover for $14.00 from Apologia Press. With a target audience of ages 1-8, this is a great way to introduce the concept of loving and thanking God every day to a young child.
Aside from the beautiful illustrations (which you can get in coloring book form for $4.00 from here), it is a short and sweet little run through a week in the life of a small child. (There is even a picture on the page discussing the school room that makes it pretty obvious the family in the story homeschools!) And while for the older end of the target audience, this may not seem like much, at the END of the book is a page for each day, with questions and scripture reading suggestions so you can expand on the daily worship concept with your children. So you can use this as either a sweet little bedtime story, and leave it at that, or you can expand upon it and turn it into a mini study for your children.
This is certainly a sweet, well-written and beautifully illustrated book. If you don't believe me, you can see a sample here :) Or you can go and see what other Crew members thought of it.
