I recently placed an order with the online Christian retailer Eden. Although I would prefer to see items that I wish to purchase in person it is so difficult in the UK to find Christian retailers that compare to the ones I have had the luxury of shopping in the US.
What had spurred this purchase was looking at Nathanael’s book collection, for a one year old his library is quite comprehensive but it was missing a few books especially on the Easter Story. I wanted books that Nathanael could enjoy himself as he is quite hands on!
I chose the Tiny Tots Easter by Lois Rock and Illustrated by Kay Widdowson. The illustrations are incredible and I love the fact the story does not shy away from Jesus death on a cross which does tend to happen with children’s books.
I then picked up The Easter Book by Rita Storey I love the ideas for crafts and recipes that this book has to offer. I think most adults would be aware of the ideas in this book but the whole purpose of this purchase was something that Nathanael and I can refer to as he gets older. I can definitely see him picking this book up and asking me to do the crafts with him.
It was lovely to receive free of charge The First Easter by Sally Ann Wright and illustrated by Honor Ayres
Veggie Tales Pirate In Training – now who doesn’t love Veggie Tales?? You’re singing the theme tune aren’t you! I think my fave has to be “No hair for my hairbrush” that song sticks in your head all day! So rather than Nate clocking up TV hours I decided to get him a book we can read together.
I think my favourite purchase has to be My Little Prayer Cards by Karen Williamson Luke and I as part of Nathanael’s bed time routine always pray with him and he really enjoys it. I plan to use this cards to develop Nate’s prayer habit that he can speak to God whenever he likes and that God loves to hear from him. Nate can pick a card and look at the picture and I will pray with him and he can join in just because I am yet to understand what Drr or grm doesn’t stop God understanding!
Finally the stationary lover in me couldn’t help put pick up some cute sticky notes! perfect for jotting down random things!
I hope you liked this haul and perhaps it gives you a few ideas of things to purchase from Eden. I am not sponsored in anyway and all purchases were my own!
