Quirky Critter Devotions: 52 Wild Wonders for Kids book description:
Quirky Critter Devotions sets you on an animal-themed expedition to uncover wildly weird facts, journal your thoughts, and gain hands-on experience with zoo-tastic activities! Discover a wide range of crazy-cool critters spanning seven animal categories—mammals, insects, amphibians, birds, fish, reptiles, and spiders. From familiar faces like turtles and honey bees to incredible creatures like the Goliath bird-eating spider, this devotional is sure to cultivate a passion for God’s Word and his creation.

Each entry features:

  • Fast Facts highlighting the animal’s scientific name, other common names, length, and diet
  • A devotion bursting with astounding discoveries and spiritual truths
  • Journaling space to unpack real-life applications
  • A memory verse and prayer to connect with God
  • Wild Wonder fun fact with a humorous animal doodle
  • Creature Connection activity like a craft, game, or snack

The perfect blend of Scripture and science, this exciting and informative devotional will expand the minds and grow the curiosity of your young ones. A fantastic gift for the animal lover in your life.

Are you ready? Take a look at these adorable burrowing owls! I love the mix of photographs and doodle art on the cover which also reflects the interior spreads.
Every fact-filled devotion begins with a large photograph followed by basic statistics, loads of animal information, along with a God-connection.

After the main text, there's an opportunity for the reader to dive into life application  through journaling along with a final fun fact called Wild Wonder. A Bible verse and sample prayer are also included. The Creature Connection gives readers the opportunity to connect with the animal even more. It might be through a craft, activity, or game related to the animal. When appropriate, many devotions end with Into the Wild encouraging kids to get outdoors and interact with the quirky critter. 

I learned so much about this incredible world as I researched and wrote. I can't wait to hear what readers think of Quirky Critter Devotions. Did you know it's my first faith-based book?
