Big and Little Activity Devotional from Rachel Swanson and Jacy Corral

B&H Publishing
My thoughts: I know that during this trying time when families are having to remain at home and work from home (or be furloughed from work) and also teach their kiddies at home as much as is possible since the shelter-in-place or stay-at-home requirement is in place. So a break in the routine of required work is certainly in order.

This Big and Little Activity Devotional is quite unusual. Take at look at this really short video. It'll give you an idea of how it works and how it is different from any "activity book" you've ever seen.

I think the concept of the reversed pages where an adult or older child can work the activity while a younger child can access the other page. The book is flip style opening from bottom to top. The puzzles are pretty standard puzzles such as mazes, connect the dot or numbers, crosswords, color by number, etc. There is a devotional thought on each set of pages.

I found that for me personally the text is just too tiny on most every page. I don't know if slightly enlarging the dimensions of the book would make larger print workable.

Some activities are words, verses, and pictures simply for thinking about and coloring.  The choices of activities are quite varied and I think this would be a grand activity book for families.

About the book: Kids crave constant activities and attention. Adults crave quiet moments of refreshment. How can we achieve both? Big and Little Activity Devotional engages minds of all ages with biblical devotions, while providing a creative outlet through coloring and activities to diffuse stress.
