"Come Inside: 31 Days of Devotions", written by Judith A. Harrah and illustrated by Jack Foster, is a devotional book for children. The title is an invitation to delve into God’s words. The devotions are written in simple language and are easy for children to understand. The illustrations add much to the text. Smaller children will love the whimsical, adorable pictures. This book had me by the second day’s devotion, 'The Cow Milk for the Soul' based on 1Peter 2:2. The illustration is of two cows standing over milk buckets. On day three we learn about the wisdom of pigs in 'The Pig Cook With God'. We are reminded to roll around in God’s Word just the way a pig rolls around in the mud. The devotions cover both Old Testament and New. Each devotion ends with a prayer.
The devotions are relevant to children and the things they face. For example, day 19 brings on a message on ridicule. This book offers children bits of knowledge about animals as well as biblical training. Most of the devotions center on animals, 'Noah’s Ark' or some other Old Testament story. The fascinating stories from the Old Testament are ideal to start a child’s biblical training. The tales (which I believe are true) are fascinating and quickly catch a child’s interest. The end of the book has a list of sources which adults too may want to refer to. The author uses "The Living Bible" for the scriptures.
