Gadget (gaj-it): a mechanical device; any ingenious article
Gizmo (giz-moh): a gadget

Gadgets & Gizmos isn’t just a cool-sounding name for a book. Gadgets and gizmos are things, inventions, trinkets that are uniquely created. Kids are a one-of-a-kind creation, created by the most creative Creator in the universe: GOD! (Which means every one of them is one unique gizmo.) Gadgets & Gizmos is a nine-week devotional for kids filled with fascinating stories, interesting tidbits, and practical tips about God’s creation, their uniqueness, and how to use their own unique creativity to love God and others. Plus they’ll encounter some pretty tricky—and messy—challenges along the way.

Gadgets & Gizmos is part of the 252 Kids Series, interactive devotional books for elementary-age children. Based on Luke 2:52, these devotionals are designed to help kids grow in wisdom, faith, and friendship.

This book is a must have for me in my small groups and in my home!”

—Kelly Stockdale, Family Director, The Hill

“What a great book for introducing children to the story of creation—they will want to read it over and over it again! It’s captivating, fun to chant aloud, and a great way to begin reading God’s Word with any age.”
