Nerdy Ned Bible Stories: A Giveaway
There is a book that travels with us in the van. It quiets the car. Sometimes.
We don’t stay quiet for long, because Nerdy Ned’s, Totally Awesome Super-Cool Bible Stories is quite humorous.
Mr. Smackdown Reads to You
Mr. Smackdown is 8 and he is developing his storytelling skills. He loves to read out loud to his fellow passengers in the car. Perhaps it is an excuse to not listen to my music, but I think it is more that he enjoys making us laugh along with Nerdy Ned.
This act of reading out loud allows him to practice inflection and intonation that helps a story to really take shape in his mind.
A Book Written for Boys
While staying true to scripture, Nerdy Ned captivates young boys – creating a desire to read the Bible.
Because Mr. Smackdown has enjoyed this book so so so much, I am super excited to offer one of my readers the opportunity to win Nerdy Ned’s Totally Awesome, Super-Cool Bible Stories published by Thomas Nelson.
Why Do I like Nerdy Ned?
- It creates a desire in my son to read aloud to his siblings and myself.
- The book makes us laugh.
- The pictures or sketches are engaging and funny.
- There are pages for Mr. Smackdown to respond to the story by drawing his reaction to the Bible passage.
- All three of my boys spanning ages 4 -8 enjoy the book.
Win this Book!
Enter to win Nerdy Ned’s Totally Awesome Super-Cool Bible Stories.
I was given a copy of this book to review as part of my involvement in the Tommy Nelson Mommy blogging program. I was not paid for this post and all opinions expressed are mine. We are still in the process of finishing this fine funny book. And I am quite positive that if you are a mom of a boy, you most likely will enjoy your child reading this book out loud to you.

I save everything…it’s rediculous. I always just filed them by year, not even by child (we have 4 children). This year I am going to take a picture of everything and then make a photo book for each child.
Sounds like a fun book! Hope to try it out with 7 yr old son! God bless!!
I usually “file” things after they’ve been appropriately displayed for a few weeks. The older two kids create so much art that they’re used to things going missing, but my 2 year old will dig stuff out of the trash that I didn’t intend on keeping it forever and hang it up on the refrigerator or bulletin board,
I do save many , many of my kids work. However , just recently, like Monday, I went through a huge bucket full of papers and sweetly placed them in a place of no return. Sorry kids! I do save lots but the bin was over flowing.
I try to file them at the end of each “season”… try! 🙂
My boys each have an under the bed bin– if it overflows- they must edit!! but it’s one huge pile!
The art that I do keep, I put in the file with our homeschool work. The rest just mysteriously disappears. 😉
You know, that happens in our house too!
My son is an artist, so he can go through a ream of paper in 2-3 days. 🙂 We make stacks, periodically asking “Keep or throw?”, but I’m afraid I keep way more than I should.
I do not file them. I only keep the ones they want to keep.
I have a file for each boy…after displaying the “piece” for an appropriate amount of time, I throw it away or file it into the real hanging file folder for said kiddo. 🙂
I LOVE that Mr. Smackdown is loving this book so much. What an expressive reader!
I think you may have helped me to find a Christmas gift for one of my reader’s. 🙂
It WOULD make a good gift for a certain Sam. 🙂
I have 4 so we have lots of papers and ‘crafts’ around here. If we don’t file it, we stick in a drawer somewhere. LOL
Hey girl! You won the Nerdy Ned book — please email me your snail mail address!
They sit on top of the refrigerator till they fall over then they go in a thinner 11×14 bin i got from staples long ago…now need a new system because they are almost full.
I have no rhyme or reason to my “filing”. Just whatever I feel was not his best gets “filed” when he is not around. And truly he doesn’t care.
Wow, sounds perfect for my 8 year old son too! He loves to read, but is intimidated by the ‘real’ Bible still.
I file nearly everything in a portfolio, unless it’s too big; then it goes into my unused dresser drawer.
I keep every thing and am completely overflowing I don’t know what to do with it all. I was actually going to try to get some suggestions at some point cuz my kitchen looks like it exploded with it all!
I have a photography box as well as a large Rubbermaid container for most. I finally had to file a few over the last 6 months in the trash, though, as my oldest draws constantly and the homeschooling books, papers, etc. are taking over, too. 😉
I would love to keep everything, but I don’t (gasp). I pick one or two things each week, date them and stick them in a file folder with each child’s name. At the end of the year I have a nice variety. Someday I’ll do more with them, but for now at least they are organized by year!
Ha! No I don’t keep it all (much to my children’s dismay!). I do keep the really special crafts and art projects and I do keep all their actual “schoolwork” (we homeschool). It all goes into a basket and at the end of the schoolyear it is boxed up and placed in the attic. The weekly crafty things from church, playdates, etc hang out a while around the house and then find their way into the trash.
Nope- I don’t keep every picture. Some never even get filed- they go to the trash. No, I’m not heartless, it’s just some are scribbles! He’s 5!
My kids produce so much “artwork” that I can’t possibly keep it all. What we do keep is glued into notebooks.
I don’t (that would take up so much space. I’m trying to stay off of the Hoarders show), but what I do keep, I put in a manila envelope. Although someone asked me the other day if my kids will really care when they get older. I don’t know but maybe I’ll like to look back.
I think my boys would LOVE this!!!
I’ve started either taking a picture or scanning the art piece. With 6 children, the art pieces are numerous and I would need an entire room dedicated just for them. However if it’s a piece they worked really hard on, I keep it and put it into my art portfolio.
I save everything till the end of the school year. Then I go through and keep the ones that each of my boys is most proud of. All of the others I take a picture of and keep the CD with the other schoolwork.
I photograph a lot the papers and then put the photos on my blog so I don’t have to save all that paper.
My son is 2 1/2, and doesn’t like coloring or drawing that much yet. What he does do, I keep on the refrigerator.
I encourage my daughter to give away her drawings to relatives or friends. They get delighted and we don’t have a bunch of papers to deal with. I save those I want to keep in a box in her closet.
