Dinosaur Devotions is a fun way to help your dinosaur-loving kids connect with God. These 75 devotions include bright, colorful illustrations and uncover facts about specific dinosaur species while providing spiritual insight and easy-to-understand takeaways that will encourage your children to take their faith to the next level! Your kids will also love segments like Dino Stats (a dinosaur’s measurements), Bible Excavation (a main Bible verse), Digging Deeper (self-reflection questions), Did You Know? (fun facts), and Jurassic Journaling (creative writing opportunities) that make this devotional interactive and even more memorable.
And here’s a review, reprinted by permission:
Any kid, boy or girl, who loves dinosaurs will find this devotional hard to resist. And while learning about 75 different dinosaurs, they’ll also explore 75 different biblical concepts about living as a child of God.
Each devotion includes pronunciation of the dinosaur’s name (try Micropachycephalosaurus without a guide!), Dino Stats (about the creature’s family, size, weight, and diet), and a fun Did You Know fact.
Focused on the biblical concept are Bible Excavation (a Bible verse), Digging Deeper (a question or two for expanding the devotion’s Bible concept), and Jurassic Journaling (kid-sized writing prompts).
Nicely conversational in tone, each devotion transitions easily from dinosaur facts to what the Bible has to say about kid issues like jealousy, temptation, and speaking kindly, plus biblical teaching about ideas like the true source of knowledge, God’s constant presence, and learning to pray.
The book avoids controversy; there’s no mention of how long ago dinosaurs lived or how they became extinct.
The very last devotion includes an invitation to make Jesus Lord by praying a suggested prayer. If your faith tradition includes something more or different, you’ll want to amplify this one.
Highly recommended. For ages 9-12 to read on their own but will interest younger children too. Families also could use this and the suggested questions and activities for a family devotional time.
