“God Bless Texas” was sent to me by Zonderkidz - a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.

“God Bless Texas” is a Christian children’s picture book, written and illustrated by Peter Francis. This is a board book, so would be appropriate for little hands. It is also written in a way that a young reader could read and enjoy. It has rhyme and rhythm, so I believe that little ones will enjoy having it read to them.

I love how, Henry, the little bear enjoys a trip to Texas, and tells about what he sees and experiences. He visits Austin’s capitol, Houston’s space center, Dallas’ rodeo, among others. He also visits Big Bend National Park and floats down the Rio.

I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to children, and to those who read to them.

Cute little Henry Bear is off on another adventure and he wants your little one to come along! This time the car is packed up and ready to head to the great state of Texas.

Henry's first stop is the Guadalupe Peak. It's a four mile hike up to the top but the views make each step worth it. The next stop is the state capital of Austin where the governor greets him.

No trip to Texas would be complete without a rodeo. Henry drives into Dallas, dons his ten-gallon hat, and then whoops it up with all the other fans. Once the show is over it is off to the Alamo. There he learns about the brave Texans who fought for thirteen days straight to achieve freedom from Mexico.

Texas is also home to the NASA Space Center. Henry Bear enjoys a day discovering and exploring all the fascinating things that make up our space program. For his last day of vacation Henry spends the day at Big Bend National Park floating down the Rio. Before he leaves Texas he must stop and grab some souvenirs to remember his trip. Then it is back home where he gives thanks to God "For mountains and deserts, for rivers that run. For the big state of Texas, that's filled with such fun."

We're enjoying these books so much at our house. They are a great way to introduce different areas of the United States to your little one. Our little Henry delights in hearing his name used and is determined to go on these same adventures. The benefit for the momma that finds herself reading this book over and over is the fun and snappy verses. They easily roll off of the tongue. Before you know it your little one will be saying the verses with you.

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 7/6/2016)

God Bless Texas by Peter Francis is incredibly adorable! I love that this book is educational but also focuses on giving God credit for our wonderful state of Texas. I also love that you learn all about Texas' landmarks. My kids absolutely love this book and think the illustrations are very cute and colorful just like all children's books should be. God Bless Texas by Peter Francis would be an awesome book to add to your collection if you live in Texas or are planning any trips to visit. Of course neither apply to my family right now but Texas is definitely on our list to visit someday, especially after reading God Bless Texas by Peter Francis! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers. (Posted on 6/14/2016)

God Bless America, God Bless Texas, and God Bless Florida are three new board books from the A Land That I Love Book series (illustrated by Peter Francis).

In God Bless Texas, Henry the bear takes a trip to Texas. He travels to Guadalupe Peak, Austin, Dallas, the Alamo, Houston, and Big Bend before heading home.

In each of the three books (God Bless America, God Bless Texas, and God Bless Florida), the first four pages share the same wording (with only the location description changed). The illustrations on the first four pages are very similar as well, with a few changes to reflect the location(s) of his trip. Again the last four pages of each of the three books are worded and illustrated very much the same. In God Bless America, a page or two from both God Bless Texas and God Bless Florida are copied into the main body of the book.

Although I don't think I would pay to purchase more than one of these books (because there is so much overlap with about half of the content being repeated), I do think that they are cute and I really like that Henry the bear ends his trip(s) by praying and thanking God for his fun vacations. I say that...but if one came out about my family's home state I sure would love to own it.

FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews. (Posted on 6/9/2016)

Last week I introduced you to the first Land that I Love Book God Bless America. Then we started getting into the specific states starting with God Bless Florida. The next book in the series is God Bless Texas which, you guessed it, explores Texas with our new friend Henry the bear.

Here Henry the Bear makes his destination the great state of Texas. This was probably the most educational for me personally so far as I'd not heard of many of these places. It was fun exploring them together with my little one.

I like that he visits the Capitol of Austin as it's a great educational tool for little ones to learn because they will eventually need to know the State Capitols in school.

There's a good balance of historical and fun like the rodeo! My kids had never heard of a rodeo before so this prompted the most discussion. My eight year old liked when Henry dressed as an astronaut because that is his current obsession. It made him take interest in the book whereas before it was just my two year old listening.

Henry gets some souvenirs of his trip and then heads home with his precious memories. We are excited to see which state Henry visits next in the Land That I Love Series! (Posted on 6/1/2016)

Join Henry the bear on his latest adventure to the grand state of Texas. Where he learns all about Guadalupe Peak, a rodeo, the Alamo, and the Big Bend along with much, much more. Floating down the Rio gave a grand display of all sorts of interesting sites from nature and mountains to deserts, as well.Henry thanks God for each state that he visits and all the fun he has had.



Along with the very precious illustrations, Henry warms your heart tells your child about some awesome places to visit and seals the deal with a prayer at the end. How great is that?!
