Now that April has started, we're one-quarter of the way through 2014. Just wanted to give you a quick update on how things are going with my Amazon raking. As you may remember, I started this year with a goal to review 104 books on Amazon and get my reviewer ranking under a hundred thousand.
Good news, my current ranking is 66,877 and I have reviewed 24 books. Even though I have met my goal of getting my ranking under a hundred thousand, I still need to review 80 books by December 31, 2014. If you have a book that you are interested in me reviewing please check my book reviewer guidelines.
Now it is time for a surprise. I decided to spotlight one book a month. The best book I have reviewed in the last month (or in this case three). So drum roll please.... The honor for the first ever Book of the Month Pick by Corine is......
Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot!
By Virginia Finnie
About the Book: Every child has experienced it. Lying in bed, in the dark and feeling afraid. Is there a monster in the closet or under the bed? What's a kid to do?
Beginning with the retelling of the story of David and Goliath, Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot! gives kids the weapons they need to battle the "giant of fear." Their slingshot is God's Word (the Bible) and their smooth stones are God's Truth (scripture). God’s Warrior Kids are encouraged to speak out God's Truth to overcome fear. Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot! is the second book in the Hey Warrior Kids! series.
My Review: As a clinical psychologist, I am often searching for material to use in my therapy sessions with children. I was surprised on so many different levels by Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot!. I initially bought Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot! to read to my nieces as a bedtime story. However, I quickly realized that it was packed with a lot of powerful information.
Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot! retells the story of David and Goliath in a way that children can understand. However, it does not stop there. The author helps children to apply the story of David and Goliath to their lives by explaining how every child has a slingshot (the Bible) and smooth stones (bible verses). This book also teaches children how their thoughts can overcome fears (and other life circumstances). The book ends by walking children through a personal example (feeling afraid at night).
I am planning on using this book in my therapy sessions to help teach children the importance of meditating on God's Word; remembering what God says about them and not what a bully says; the importance of your thoughts (CBT); how to handle fear; and how as Christians we do not have to be afraid of anything because God is bigger. I am looking forward to seeing what is next in the Hey Warrior Kids series.
You can order Hey Warrior Kids! Grab Your Slingshot! from Amazon for about 7.99.
