The One Year Choose Your Own Ending Devotions

The One Year Choose Your Own Ending Devotions is a soft copy interactive and engaging devotional book published by Tyndale with contents developed by Pioneer clubs, a church-sponsored midweek program for children across North America. I felt that it’ ideal for  children age from 6 to 10 years. This book covers devotions for the whole year with one page devoted to one day.

Every devotions start with a short story but without a complete ending. After reading the story, Bible scripture passage, and going through the questions and assignments and the learning outcomes, children and/or parents are encouraged to complete the short story. However, there are suggested endings at the back of the book for comparison or for reference.

I receive a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Tyndale House Publishers for review. I think it’s a great tool for parents to use as devotional materials with their children either individually or in a group. The story is a great start as to capture the children’s attention. Encouraging the children to complete the stories is a great opportunity to encourage creativity and also test their understanding of the learning points.

The only thing I don’t like about this book is that the font size use is too small. I know that the publisher wants to keep each day in a page but there are some empty spaces at the bottom so perhaps a slight increase in font size would be helpful.
