Sunday Snippet: Best Mates A Bob Hartman GiveAway…

I know, put it down to a weekend away and being back in school but I am somewhat off the pace with posting… and my GiveAway Winner selectors are all fast asleep right now, so you will have to wait until tomorrow to discover our winner from last weeks GiveAway. So to level things out I thought I would throw in a midweek GiveAway just for kids…

"Best Mates" (Bob Hartman)

Bob Hartman is a master storyteller, I use his storytelling books a lot with my kids… anyway here is one written just for kids and it is great. I know my boys that are novice readers, who are just venturing into chapter books would love this book and would chortle their way through it!!! Bob Hartman can be really amusing and he holds nothing back in this book!!! It is about three clumsy and not always the brightest young men, who could have been friends with Jesus. These chaps get into all sort of pickles, not least a whole chapter where one of them has a piece of barley stuck up his nose. The story winds its way through Bible truths about Jesus and from the perspective of his nutty friends – who are baffled when the water they just drank has become great wine – it must be a miracle!!! It is a goofy, funny read… it would really appeal to my typical six and se7en year old boys and their ummm, nutty sense of humor, they would gobble it up and love it!!!


More seriously, and just because I am doing a mid-week GiveAway, I will add in a starter pack dive into the Bible with Discover notes taking a three week look at the book of Mark. Discover is great collection of day by day Bible notes for kids… Each day their is a Bible reading, a verse to remember, a puzzle, something to think about, something to act upon and finally something to pray about. These notes are great and thought provoking… Love them. You can read more about Discover Bible Reading Notes for kids at The Good Book.

As usual I have to thank CBD, our GiveAway book suppliers for another great book.

  1. These sound great. I have a boy who is going to be in chapter books soon and would really enjoy the first one!

  2. The cover of Bob’s book looks lovely! I think I might enjoy this one as much as the children. Its also such an important age group (6-8) to establish a real love for reading. It sets the platform for years to come and with books like this, who could but love books.

  3. Please enter us. We love your blog, everyday you post something so timely for us to read.

  4. Those books look great! I always need new ideas for devotions/daily readings with the kids!

  5. I had a little giggle already from reading the description – love books like that – doesn’t take life too seriously

  6. I would love to enter…my little boy would love this book…he’s 4.5, so he can’t read yet, but we read a chapter book every day!

  7. Count us in again, please! I think my boys will love it. Thanks for the great giveaways! Have a great week!

  8. This is such a lovely give away! And I think it’s very sweet of you that you let people from all over the globe enter..thank you!
    So, I realy love to enter. (and you sure had a good time at the weekend outing!)
