I have to first admit this cover is what made me request this book. This is Butterfly Wishes and Wonderland Dreams but this book is wonderful! This sweet story is full of lots of rhyme and sweet questions. But that isn't all the illustrations on each page make this book a sure winner in our family. I love that this story tell just how much God loves for them runs deeper than a wishing well, softer than a kitten's sneeze just to name a few from the picture book.
Each question in this book is a 2 page spread. It not only helps your child understand that Gods' love run far, wide, and deep. This book would be perfect for a baby shower gift or a child's birthday gift. We have enjoyed this book and I know that this will be a picture book that will be tattered and worn from all the love.
thank you Blogging For Books for sending us a copy of this book for review.
Dandi Daley Mackall does a great job teaching children of God's love in her book God Loves Me More Than That. The book has great rhymes and is good for those children who are learning to read. I really liked the book and will definitely read it to my little one when he gets here in May. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
My copy of God Loves Me More Than That arrived not that long ago, and I enjoyed reading the little "Dandilion rhymes" that told over and over again how much God loves us_more than the buzzes of bumble bees and soft as a summer breeze.
The little rhymes are easy to understand (or explain!) and every single page has an adorable painting featuring a little boy as he asks questions and gets answers about God's love.
This book is perfect for toddlers and perhaps even as a simple reader for little ones just starting to read on their own, and I think you'll agree with me that the message and the pictures are so sweet that it will be read again and again. I know I can't wait to share it with my niece next time she is here, because even though she is a little hard on books still, I know she'll enjoy the pictures and I want her to never forget that she is very loved_more than anything else, by our God.
Note: Thank you to Multnomah Books and the blogging for books program for this copy for review purposes.
First of all what drew me to the book was the beautiful cover. It's gorgeously illustrated by David Hohn. The illustrations throughout the book are beautiful and work wonderfully with the story.
I loved the different ways someone can describe being loved, especially in a way that a child can understand. How high, wide and deep does God love me? Those are some of the basic ways a child might ask how God loves them so Dandi brings in some fun and sweet ways as well. Is God's love soft or how loud is His love. Don't those questions just beg an answer?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and wish my kids were just toddler or preschoolers.
