TOS Review--Good Morning, God
The idea of the book is good. It is based Deuteronomy 6:6-7, which says "These commands that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." The story then repetitively threads the ideas from these verses throughout the book in a story of one family's dweekly activities. At the end of the book, a little study guide is included with some ideas of activities to do with kids each day of the week. I like children's stories with repetition, and Jack especially loves stories with repetition, but I did not think that the story flowed very well. I tend to like repetition in books when it is more lyrical (or maybe rhythmical is a better word to use), but the repetition in the book seemed a bit clunky to me.
