Internationally known Performance Storyteller and bestselling Author Bob Hartman is set to entertain and inspire children with the launch of his all-new Clever Cub Bible Stories series from David C Cook. Geared to little ones ages three to six, this delightful and affordable 16-book series of Bible story picture books makes reading time a faith-building adventure as Clever Cub reminds kids of their part in God’s story. I’ve personally read them to kids that I teach in Sunday School!
Featuring colorful illustrations, kid-friendly questions and engaging stories from the wonders of Creation to the songs of the Psalms to the arrival of Baby Jesus, this series of Bible story picture books invite readers to join Clever Cub as he “Welcomes Baby Jesus, Explores God’s Creation, Sings to God and Gives Thanks to God.” A note at the end of each book includes questions about the story’s theme to help parents or teachers to send a positive message. Plus these questions help start conversations with children about their own part in God’s story.
“My dream for this series is that Clever Cub helps children see the love of God in their own lives,” continues Hartman, “and that they receive the joy that Christ brings when we enter into a relationship with Him!”
Follow along through 30 Bible stories that show how the Holy Spirit came and what Jesus’ friends did. Experience the adventures of Peter, Paul, and other believers from the Pentecost celebration through the Acts of the Apostles.
These stories will keep your child amazed, engaged, and inspired with:
- a key Bible verse at the beginning of each story
- a conversation-starting question at the end of each story
- beautiful illustrations and intriguing maps
- learning opportunities for the littlest hearts to share the love of Jesus
Read the stories for a month as a daily family devotional or throughout the year. Get excited to go and tell how Jesus makes everything good and new!

My personal favorite is the Mongo Kiss peppermint flavor.
The curious cube appears to create an ever-changing spectrum of color, providing you with endless enjoyment. Each face of the translucent cube is coated in electromagnetically subtractive materials which at first, appear as cyan, magenta, or yellow. Twisting and turning the geometry creates new combinations, resulting in the appearance of new colors.
Mixing Color cubes can help kids better understand the color model, learn mixing color matching, increase kids’ interest in natural light. Also give it as desktop toys to your children, nephews, grandchildren.
It is also like a paperweight – but fun for kids! If I was still teaching high school biology, I know I would have added this to my collection of desk toys that my students would all come in and play with. It’s very fun just to see the different colors. But it would also be great in a physical science classroom when they discuss various wavelengths of colors. This would also be ideal in an art class where you learn about how colored light works to create new colors.Send kids of any age back to school with Whoa Dough, a healthy edible cookie dough bar they can pack in their lunch box or toss in their backpack!
