This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #87: Norine!

sports bookMy 9 year old nephew is a big sports fan. He’s always talking about teams, players and stats. Unfortunately, I know nothing about sports so most of the time I’m pretty lost in the conversation. So when I heard about a new book called Sports Trivia Devotional by Dave Veerman & Dana Niesluchowski, I knew it would be perfect for my nephew and I way for me to get a little more familiarized on the subject.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

In these pages you’ll find fascinating facts and invaluable information about just about every type of athlete and sport you can imagine—from home run hitters to hometown heroes, triumphs and tragedies, record-setters to barrier-breakers, upsets and upstarts, names and games, from draft pick to pick-and-role, winners and whiners, routes and routs, from servers to surfers, and from running backs to come-backs. You’ll meet a one-legged mountain-climber, a surfing survivor, backward runners, an elephant polo player, and champions and All-Stars across the athletic spectrum. Most important, you’ll discover points and principles from the Bible and sports to apply to competition and life.

OUR REVIEW

This 328 colored paged book is filled with so much interesting sports facts that I couldn’t put it down. There’s one page for each day of the year and it’s a great way to start your child’s morning. On each page you’ll find in-depth information on a sporting event that happened on that specific day in history, a list of other events on that day, birthdays, a fun fact, and an inspirational quote. There are also fun quizzes throughout the book.

What I really liked about the Sports Trivia Book is that they take a sporting event and show your child how they can relate it to their own lives in a positive way.

This book would be a great addition to any child’s library . . . and even you may learn a thing or two!

Purchase your copy at Amazon.com for $13.25.

    My son’s favorite sport is wrestling. He’s been wrestling since he was 4 years old. He is a senior this year. This devotional would be awesome for him. Thank you for the chance to win.
