For an author, holding a newly published hot-off-the-press book is always an exciting moment. It’s a moment of satisfaction and a feeling of reward. After many months (or years) of writing, revising, rewriting, and revising again, the words you sometimes agonized over are now on the printed page.
For children’s authors, a new book is a product of team work. The author may create the stories, but the illustrator has to creatively capture the messages and bring the words to life. Then there are editors, art directors, design and layout people, and the much-needed marketing staff.
I have been blessed over the past two decades to work with the finest people in children’s publishing to produce top quality books. My newest release (literally hot-off-the-press) is Our Daily Bread for Preschoolers–90 Big Moments with God. This is the second children’s book for Our Daily Bread, which follows Our Daily Bread for Kids–365 Meaningful Moments with God. While the first book is geared toward children 6-10, the second one targets a younger audience.
Our Daily Bread for Preschoolers offers a fun way to introduce children to God. The stories highlight God’s actions, character, and promises. Some of the daily readings refer to stories from the Bible, while others help children apply biblical truths to everyday life.
Each reading also features a Bible verse, a kid-friendly question, and a short rhyming prayer to help children talk to God. Whether you’re cuddled up one-on-one at bedtime, or reading to a small group at story time, you can help the little ones in your life have big moments with a loving God.
