My 6yo is accustomed to devotionals that are not designed to be written in. He was thrilled to realize that he would be allowed to write and draw in this one. He’s working on another devotional right now, and wanted to know if he could “finish it off after he DARES 2 do this one.”

Dare U 2 Open This Book is basically the boy version of Just Sayin', also by Carol McAdams Moore. This is the perfect book for a young man who loves to draw and write as a way to express himself.

It's a little too old for my six year old but I know he will eventually love it because of his love of drawing. Right now he has a journal that he writes in and draws pictures so it's the perfect transition into a book like this for the tween years.

Moore is really in touch with this generation and has a gift for using todays tools to speak to the young. She uses their language with current slang like awesome, chow (for food) and even "just sayin'. It's very relevant to today with current references that kids will understand.

Boys are often thought to be less artsy than girls but I don't find that to be true at all in my house. My son and daughter both love to draw and Dare U 2 Open this Book will be great for Reed someday! (Posted on 11/8/14)

“Dare U 2 Open This Book” was sent to me by Zonderkids, a division of Zondervan Publishing, free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.
This is the coolest devotion book!! It is written by Carol McAdams for TEENS and TWEENS. I think it will go over really well with boys AND girls. There are 90 devotions. Each devotion includes verses and questions to think on, but it is very INTERACTIVE. There are sections to doodle, puzzles, quizzes, prayers to write, and other fun things to do – making it fun to study God’s Word.
In today’s busy busy society, we must give our children a reason to choose to read and study God’s Word or they normally will choose to hang with friends, watch TV, play on their electronic devices. I believe “Dare U 2 Open This Book” will give kids that reason because it is a FUN time of study.
I really like this devotional and would recommend it to parents and youth leaders to give to the young folks in their life.

My Review:

Just like the authors devotional book for young girls, there is also one she has written for our boys. Written in the same style as the Just Sayin' devo so we have, Dare U 2 Open This Book: 90 Ways to Rock Your Faith. A great devotional to encourage and inspire young boys to be all that God has called them to be. Along with 90 scripture references it has room for activities, doodlings, and just many ways that a young man can express himself in a natural way.

I enjoy reviewing these type of devotionals because it can really help a young person that is struggling as well. They have so many things that they are tempted with on a daily basis and these type of devotionals show them how they can relax in Jesus. My boys enjoyed it because they love the activities. Momma loves it because the current thread throughout the whole book is Jesus. This book retails for $8.99 and is available link.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the Z Blog Squad. (Posted on 10/30/14)

Getting tween aged boys excited to read is a hard enough task! This new devotional for boys is not just about reading scripture it truly gives boys time to reflect and think about certain topics at length. I also love that the book has other activities inside it to keep boys entertained and give their mind a thinking break. The best thing is this book truly is relationship building with our Savior Jesus! (Posted on 10/25/14)
