a snippet from Kaylee’s Easter Treasure:
Kaylee weaved her way through all the boxes, stopping to peek inside some on the way. “Oh, neat! That’s interesting, Daddy. What is it?” Kaylee asked, pointing at something in a box.
Daddy came over to where Kaylee was standing. He smiled as he bent down to see what Kaylee was pointing at. “Wow, Kaylee, you found the box I’ve been looking for. Thank you! Let’s see what treasures lie within, shall we?”
Kaylee giggled; she liked it when Daddy got silly. But she was curious—really curious about the one treasure. Kaylee looked up at her daddy lost in thought. He reached inside the box and lifted up the treasure Kaylee had pointed to and slowly sat down. Kaylee moved over and sat beside him. She waited patiently for him to explain what the treasure was.

New read-out-loud book guides families through Bible study
Devotionals, study questions punctuate short chapters in ‘Kaylee’s Adventures’
ALERT BAY, British Columbia – Inspired by author Tanya Packer’s son at 8 years old, “Kaylee’s Adventures” (published by WestBow Press) is a delightful story designed to be read out-loud to children and generate meaningful discussion for the entire family.
Kaylee is a little girl who loves her life in the city. When her family moves to the country, she meets new human and animal friends and recalls Bible stories along the way, like the story of Caleb and the spies and Noah’s Ark.
Packer mixes education with fun by incorporating devotionals and study questions at the end of each short chapter. She offers guidance to parents in directing conversation with their children, and she highlights applicable Bible verses for conjoined reading and study.
“The book helps young people make the connection between the Bible and their lives,” Packer says. “There is no greater joy than watching young people apply their biblical knowledge to their lives and prayerfully seek guidance. I also firmly believe in making intergenerational connections – this builds a stronger family and community and the book is written to both encourage and foster this belief.”
