God Loves Me More Than That

How much love does God have for me?

More than the letters between A and Z. More than the bumbles in a bumble bee.

God loves me more than that!

As your child revels in each lively rhyme and engaging illustration from this delightful picture book, they’ll learn that God loves them deeper than a wishing well, wider than a semi-truck, louder than thunder, and softer than a kitten’s sneeze.

Each question, presented with charming child-like faith will help your child grasp the great love of God through comparisons and descriptions they can easily understand. In short, they’ll discover that His love is bigger, wider, higher, and deeper than anything they could imagine!

What I Can Tell You:
We are not an overly religious family meaning, we don't attend Church every Sunday and we don't follow the rules of Lent however, we do celebrate God and talk about him daily. My children know who he is, what he wants for and from them and pray to him every night.  They have tons of questions that sometimes are very hard for me to explain. What I do tell them, is how much he loves them. That he created everything and we are here because he loves us. Love is a big part of our God talk which is why this book was so perfect for my famliy.

The photos are beautiful and take up two pages when held flat. Also each page has a simple sentence  or question that will keep a child's attention if you are reading out loud or will enable first time readers the comfort of trying to read alone or out loud themselves.

"Tell me, please is the Lord's love high?
 Higher than the moon in a starless sky!"

Maria Says: Great for ages 4-9

With Easter around the corner, I believe this is a great book for an Easter Basket or anytime.

  2. That would be a great Easter basket addition--thanks for the suggestion!
    And p.s. my laptop hates your website now for some reason--it takes a really long time to load pages and acts sluggish when they do load. Has anyone else had these complaints or is laptopasaurus about to go extinct on me??? lol
