No Girls Allowed Devotions for Boys is the companion devotion to the popular For Girls Only! Devotions (2009). The devotion books follow the same format: a story related to a scripture theme, a game/activity, a list of things to do, and quotes from people and the Bible that reinforce the theme. Each of the 60 devotions is 4 pages long (2 complete spreads) and includes original single-color art that will attract and engage boys ages 8-12. The illustrations are more like cartoons—each has a caption that relates to the theme. Some of the themes addressed include bullying, being a good winner, generosity, church participation, worship, and creation. The devotions use a wide range of examples. The author uses original stories, but he also uses things familiar to boys (G.I. Joe, Transformers, sports figures, superheroes, comics, video games, etc.) to illustrate his point.

This book is a MUST-HAVE for the 8-12 year old boys in your life. The cool references and fun games make it at absolute delight, but the spiritual impact to be gained is amazing. These are completely relevant topics and are taught in a manner both insightful and fun. I bought a copy a couple of days ago and thoroughly enjoyed reading myself. When Cody saw it, he was equally as enthused. and I look forward this being a part of nightly family devotions with him.

I highly recommend this book!!
