God is with Me through the Day by Julie Cantrell is a sweet photo book for kids. First, Mia's thoughts: My favorite page of this whole book is the picture of the baby raccoon feeling alone. I liked the cute pictures of the baby animals. I like the Bible verse at the end of the book. Now my review. I loved this adorable hardcover book! Every page features a charming photo of baby animals that illustrates the story. The story is written is simple language that my six-year-old daughter was able to read by herself with just a little bit of help. The message is excellent: even when they feel small and all alone in this great big world, God is always with them and will keep them safe. The pictures will capture even the smallest child's interest, and the message of faith and trust in the Lord a vital one.
Any animal loving kid is going to love these books. The theme cord is the same that runs through them. Letting your child know no matter where he/she goes or what they are doing God is with them. When the day is done and the Night is ended God will still be there to help them face what comes next. The pictures are of all sorts of animals; some are funny, come are cute and sweet. The important message though is that God is there no matter what.
As a school librarian, it is interesting to note which books appeal to children. The students love this book. They read it to each other and love to act out the different animals. I recommend it for all ages!
