"Duck Commander Devotions for Kids" by Korie Robertson and Chrys Howard is a devotion for kids that is inspired by the hit TV show "Duck Dynasty"!
Korie Robertson is Willie Robertson's wife and Chrys Howard is Korie's mom. This mother/daughter team has written a devotional together that highlights the faith of the Robertson family.
"With the Robertson clan's flair for down-home wisdom and their wholesome family values, this devotional reveals the heart and faith of this much-loved family."
Fans of the show, "Duck Dynasty", will enjoy hearing "behind the scenes" stories about the Robertson family -- both from the past and the present day. And of course, each story has a moral that applies to the theme of the day's devotion.
Each day's reading has an introductory Bible verse, the devotion itself, a prayer in Jesus' name and a "Duck Commander in Action" section.
The Duck Commander in Action section is a nice feature where the child can be inspired to DO something -- draw a picture, write a note, do something physical, visit a food bank, etc... For this reason, reading the devotional at some point throughout the day would be better than doing it at bedtime because there would be more opportunity to do the activity.
My biggest concern with the devotional is the use of "The Message" for a couple of introductory Bible verses. I know some people like "The Message", but I personally feel it has deviated too much for the original Scriptures to make it a valid translation and so I avoid it.
My son is 9 and he is thrilled to have a devotional all his own that he can read to himself, have me read to him or that he can even read to his older sister! (I love it when they read their devotionals to one another because there is a story or moral they just have to share...).
Overall, this devotional is sure to be a hit with fans of the TV show "Duck Dynasty" and it is a great way to inspire young readers to search the Scriptures for wisdom and guidance.
