D-I-R-T. What kind of dirt are you? Eyeballs are on U. U know it. What kind of light R U? Dare U 2 Open this Book is not your typical 90-day devotional for guys. It s an all-out open space for you to explore and learn more about yourself and your faith. With prompts to get your mind thinking and your creative ideas flowing, turn your thoughts and emotions into dynamic doodles, fill in the prayer blanks, solve puzzles, and more. Each of the short, single-page devotions includes a topic, quote, Scripture summary, plus doodles, journal prompts, lists, puzzles, quizzes, fill-in-the-blank prayers, and unique activities that explore Bible truths and ways to apply them—everyday. —Dare U 2 Open this Book challenges guys to follow Jesus. Best. Idea. Ever.”
UPS: This is a great devo for young boys who want to get closer to God but have short attention spans. The reading is short and the activities are very fun but has the reader think and find their own identity in Christ. It really is a fantastic book and I love the way Carol writes. It’s so fun and bubbly that I doubt any boy could get board with it!
DOWNS: The only down that I can think of is that this book is definitely not one of those books that is easily shared. With me living in a big family, we always pass around favorite devos with each other and enjoy sharing notes. But Dare U 2 Open This Book is an activity book, of which you write in, draw in, there are also some gluing activities, so in order to enjoy the fullness of this book, the book needs to belong to one, and only one, boy. So, if you have multiple boys who you would like to read this, then you will want to buy one for each 😉
OVERALL: I recommend this book to boys whose ages are 6 to 10 or 11ish and rate it 5 out of 5 stars! Carol also wrote a book like this for girls called Just Sayin’ that I am sure is just as fabulous as this one!
“I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own.”
Carol McAdams Moore writes in-your-face devos in zany formats that include mind-boggling and daring Bible truths, wacky journal prompts, lay-it-on-the-line questions, extreme activities, and uber-cool doodling opps. She prays that her readers will discover Jesus and find Him more amazing than ever imagined!
