The Blessings Jar Review and Giveaway-#sponsored

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 8:40 AM
Disclosure: I received a product from Tommy Nelson Mommy in exchange for this review. However, all opinions are my own.

The Blessings JarA Story About Being Thankful by Colleen Coble is a wonderful little book geared toward young children ages 2-5. The Blessing Jar teaches young children the importance of thankfulness, celebrates the bond between grandparent and grandchild, and shows children the wonders God has places all around them. This over-sized board book format is perfect for little hands.


God gives us so many blessings. Let’s look and see all we have to be thankful for!
Alexa Grace is having a bad day, but then Grandma arrives with something special for "Grandma's Little Punky Grace"—an Ebenezer jar that she thinks is very peculiar. Grandma explains that an Ebenezer is a “stone of help” and represents God’s blessings. Alexa Grace wonders if she can fill the jar with some of God’s blessings. She goes on the hunt with her furry Newfoundland puppy and Grandma, and Alexa Grace's new blessing jar soon overflows with God’s wonders.
Filled with charming artwork, this heartwarming book is the first preschool children’s title by bestselling author Colleen Coble. The Blessings Jar celebrates the bond between grandparents and grandchildren and teaches little ones an important lesson about recognizing even the smallest of God’s blessings and being thankful for them all.
Although my grandson is nine, he is special needs and The Blessings Jar was perfect for him to read. This little board book brought a ray of thankfulness into his life. Even though The Blessings Jar is for younger children, I think it's important that all children learn about all the blessings around them. This little board book actually teaches children not to take anything for granted in a positive way they will understand. Cameron and I give The Blessing Jar 5 stars.

Be sure to print out these great coloring sheets for your child and you to color together.

We give $$ for some chores and allow them to choose how to spend it.

I keep my son who is older "in the loop" as times are hard at home and money short. This way he understands how important it is to think about where every dollar goes. And he does...he is a huge help.

Allowances have a small minimum amount, but can be added to by doing well during the week.

Some money gets saved, some spent and some given to church.

I'm not a new parent yet, but when my son is old enough, I will use some methods described above. Additionally, I plan to have chores with an allowance. This will include discussions of, "Let's find things that you can afford with your money. Look, you can have this or these. No, not enough for that."

I taught my daughter very young about savings. She already has a college fund from her gift money
