- Review by The IE Mommy
I have always really enjoyed the format of his books and the straightforward nature. This set of 90 devotions for kids might just be my favorite yet.
I like that it’s topical and each section of devotions has a subject header like salvation, total surrender and worship. These are things that are really important for young kids to study and understand and it’s great for my six and eight year olds.
Each devotion starts with a verse relating to the main subject and then there’s a short written devotion about how it ties in to the topic. It ends with a short prayer that is easy for young ones to say and remember.
I really like these short focused prayers. Prayer can be difficult to understand but getting right to the point is great for little ones who can get lost in a sea of words that aren’t necessary.
The illustrations are really beautiful and go along well with the devotions. At their age it helps to still have pictures to bring it all together for them. It also helps my two year old to start wanting to listen and pay attention even if the devotions are still over his head.
Think, Act, Be Like Jesus is another great one from Frazee and my favorite to date. (Posted on 3/11/2016)

Each 2 page spread has a Heading, Scripture, Colored Pictures and a Short Prayer.
This is a beautiful book to read with your child or even as a family.
As I have always felt the bible was way over my head and hard to understand no matter how interested I was, this book could even be great for adults who are afraid to jump into the bible or other devotional books. Great starting point for me. (Posted on 2/19/2016)
- Review by Praises of a Wife and Mommy
"Think, Act, Be like Jesus is a 90 day devotional geared at kids in the tween age unless you as the parent read through the devotional with younger children. The devotionals still have pictures, scripture, application, and prayer.
The book is broken into three categories- Think like Jesus, Act like Jesus, and Be like Jesus. Our goal should be growing closer to him and becoming like him. Think of it like you start to model and sound like the people you hang out with most so make sure you are hanging out and getting to know Jesus more so your actions become like his.
I really liked this devotional and even though the front cover says, "for kids" I think big kids can appreciate this story or new believers.
Zondervan sells this book or $12.99 so make sure to pick up your copy!
I did review Randy Frazee's younger kids boko, "Believe" if you want to read my review.

“Think, Act, Be Like Jesus” is a Believe Devotional for Kids. It is written by Randy Frazee and illustrated by Steve Adams. There are ninety full-color devotions separated into sections…THINK, ACT, BE. Each of these sections are separated into topics. Each devotion is a couple of pages, beginning with a scripture and reference. There’s a few paragraphs about the Scripture. And lastly, a short prayer. The illustrations are very nice and the devotions are sweet.
I would recommend this as a devotion for young to middle school children.

In this 90 day devotional is three different main categories Think, Act, and Be. Under each of these main categories are sub categories and each deal with different aspects of an individual's faith. I love how involved the author made it and how deep it delves into a person's issues or circumstances and it help initiate the cause for change and repentance. Fabulous DEVO for my son!
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 11/16/2015)
