Add to Your Christmas List part 2

 If you are a girl age 5-8, these books are for you. They say for girls 6-9 on the cover, but they are much too simple for the average 9-year-old. They may be ideal for an adopted 9-year-old who is still learning the language and basic concept of living in a family or learning about the Bible or a child who struggles with reading or comprehension.

This book covers the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. using stories about fiction characters Sarah and Katie, rebus stories, activities, crafts and puzzles. This is a fun book to do with a girl's Bible study group or just with a friend or sister (or parent if you don't have a sister).
Here are some of the crafts you can make from the book:

I made these for my sponsored children at the time.

This book talks about making--and losing--friends, how to be a good friend, how to solve friendship problems and fun things to do with friends. It reminds girls that Jesus is their best friend. There's a whole chapter of crafts and games to do together. This is really a fun book and you definitely need to read it with a sister or friend.  Here are some of the crafts you can make from this book:

This is the newest of the Just for Me books.  This books talks about why God made families, discusses different kinds of families, talks about the importance of working, playing and serving together and discusses special times and celebrations. An animal family and a Bible family are featured in each chapter. There are crafts, puzzles, stories and activities. And there's a special family activity in each chapter. Some of you made the penguin cupcakes from this book a while back. Unfortunately I can't find where I posted those photos. Here are pictures of some of the crafts and activities from this book:
