Dream Big, My Precious One by Jill Roman Lord–Book Review

This book is a delight to all the senses! Lovely illustrations (kudos to illustrator Brittany Lakin), lively rhymes, excellent content.

Mom encourages her little one to dream big, listing the many jobs, tasks and roles that he may fulfil in his life. Some are achievable right now — ride a bike, paint and draw — others are for later –designing cars, exploring Mars. Some are secular–open a store–others are altruistic–serve the poor. She emphasizes that our dreams are not just for us, they are meant to help others in ways we may not even see. Best of all, God is with us in all our dreams, whether they are fully realized or not.

The book closes with this verse from 1 Chronicles:

“Be strong and courageous and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” 1 Chronicles 28:20

VERDICT: 5 STARS. I loved it!

The Silent Noisy Night by Jill Roman Lord — Book Review

Was the night Jesus was born really silent?  Since this blessed event occurred in a stable, the odds are, it was filled with quite a variety of animal and human noise.

The Silent Noisy Night (padded)This sturdy, colorful board book will delight both parents and small children.  Illustrated by Kelly Breemer, cows, horses, goats, donkeys, chickens and more parade across the pages along with their appropriate sounds.  I can easily picture myself reading it with my new granddaughter-to-be next Christmas.  It’s a bit short on details of the Biblical Christmas story, but for toddlers, it could serve as a nice introduction on which to build in subsequent years.

VERDICT:  I would recommend this book to parents of very young children and give it 4 stars!
