For July we are learning about the Fruit of the Spirit. Here's the link to my Pinterest board for Fruit of the Spirit
Here are several books that have come in so far. We are waiting on a few more.
"9 Fruits Alive" is the shortest and is great for a simple introduction
"Jesus in Me" goes more in depth and I really like the emphasis of Jesus being in them
"A Little Boy After God's Own Heart" is a gorgeous book with trains, scripture and rhyming that Munchkin repeatedly requests.
The "Beary Batch Bears" series talks about asking God for that Fruit which I think is a great point
This book provides some great crafts, lessons and songs. We did the 9 songs for each and the basket idea I got from here.
Fruit smoothies talking about how eating fruit is great for strong bodies and how the fruits from God are best for our soul, mind, heart, faith and family.

|Song we learned off YouTube. You can find the one pictured here. We ended up liking this one even more though and play or sing if often|
|All our new books for the month|
|We read our books through out the day. It's much easier to have rapt attention from|
two wiggly boys to read when they are eating
|Sang our song while asking if that fruit was a Fruit of the Spirit.|
|Coloring pages from Ministry-to-Children, one for each of the 9 fruits to share with our friends|
