Duck Commander Happy, Happy, Happy Stories for Kids - Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Thomas Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

Using the lively cast of characters from Duck Dynasty that everyone knows and loves, Korie Robertson and her mom, Chrys Howard, will tell mostly true stories that illustrate important biblical lessons in a fun and engaging way. Each story will also include a “Duck Commander Fun” activity and a Bible verse.

My Review:

You'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't know the Duck Dynasty celebrities.  They're famous for the family-themed television show about duck calls, country living, and Christian beliefs.  Although I'm not a devoted fan of Duck Dynasty, I've watched their shows from time to time and admire that they stand firm in their religious beliefs.

A hardcover book written for children ages 4 to 8, Duck Commander Happy, Happy, Happy Stories for Kids has fourteen individual stories telling mostly true stories about the Duck Dynasty family.  Being a new kid in a different surrounding, and taking a leap of faith by crossing a skywalk are just a couple of the tales told.

The "Duck Commander in Action" section at the end of each story encourages kids to take action and consider life movements.  The action steps push children to put into practice the Biblical application of each story.  For instance, one talks about talents and how to properly apply them in thoughts and behaviors.  There are a couple of blank ruled pages in the back of the book where the reader can write in a story of their own.  To further engage the child, there's also "Let's Talk About It" sections after each story, with book discussion format asking the reader to recall what they read in the story.

I think Duck Commander Happy, Happy, Happy Stories for Kids is written in a way that will make kids want to read it, as well as follow through with the actions requested of them.  If your children are not familiar with the Duck Dynasty cast, they may not associate with the stories that involve the famous family because the stories are told from the family's experiences.  Despite that, this is a perfect book for kids to get plugged into.

Win It!
