I had the honor of working with author Robin Schmitt during my time at Zondervan (Adventure Bible Handbook for one), and not only is he a Man of God and wonderful person, Robin Schmitt knows how to write wisdom for kids, and he does it VERY well. In his latest book of devotions, Robin delivers positive, uplifting, powerful Scriptures to meditate and reflect on—in five words or less! At a time of media-driven, 10-second attention spans that must be fed or lost to the next item, this book offers nuggets of relatable stories and ways for busy families to engage. Short, sweet, memorable Scriptures and 52 devotions designed to be done once a week offer powerful “gemstones,” Scripture of  five words or less. Gorgeous, four-color photographs throughout reiterate a sense of beauty while reminding us of our rock-solid God. This book is perfect for anyone suffering from too-busy syndrome and desires to get back into God’s Word, great gift for holidays, teachers, youth group leaders, new Christians, homeschoolers, Christian educators and libraries, oh, and middle grade boys and girls!
