Does your family appreciate digital books as much as ours? We are constantly on the lookout for books that work with our kids’ tablets. They just work so much better when we are on the go, because they can have all of their favorites with them in one small place. When we were asked to review the digital books by Kayla Jarmon, we were very excited. These books are great quality and work very similarly to a regular book. We looked at three different titles, A Boy and His Dog, Dying Is Part of This World, and Don’t Forget Me. Here is what we found as we used these books…

Take a Peek
This is a lovable story about, you guess it, a boy and his dog. This is a cute story with great illustrations that is sure to find its way into the your child’s heart. Who can resist a cute puppy, right? The story begins with the boy being woke by his dog, and you are taken along on the adventures of their day together. A must read for any dog lovers out there.
This book is wonderful for any child that is dealing with the loss of a loved one. Since it is a discussion book, it comes with questions that help guide the reader through the many emotions and thoughts that can arise as part of a loss. Written with a Christian view, there are numerous Bible verses that can be used to both teach and comfort the child.
The story begins with a girl seeing death on the news. This makes her scared that her mom might die, which in turn begins a discussion between the girl and her mother about how death is a part of this world. Her mother uses the concept of birth to show how death is just another part of life and nothing to be scared of. This book is probably best for those 10 and up, as younger children may not fully understand the book’s concepts.
This book is also a discussion book, and probably would work best with an older elementary school child. The story begins with a baby in the womb having a conversation with God about the process of birth. Every so often God reminds the baby to “not forget.” This is a great discussion about how we come from God. Yet we still sometimes seem to forget that he is there. That is why it is so important to have a loving family who also loves God, so they can help us remember him. Complete with scripture verses, this would make a great Bible study for families with young children.

“With the books I liked the illustrations, and they helped you picture what the text was saying. I also like the two discussion books because they can be helpful for someone who is dealing with a loss or understanding death. The books are helpful.”
“I really like these books because even though they are digital, they have the feel of a typical book. They are well thought out with deep meanings and ideas.”
