AndreaLisaBelize, C.AAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Will create wonderful memories!February 11, 2012AndreaLisaBelize, C.AAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just In Case You Ever Wonder is truly a gem among children's books. I found this book very interesting and sweet and it really helped to develop a stronger bond with my children. The book talks about how special children are and that "the same hands that the stars made you". Such a wonderful but yet profound statement.
This book would be great for children up to eight or nine years.
The story is told very beautifully by Max, who can tell stories like no other. It's perfect for bedtime or any other time you want to cuddle with your child. I say child because I found that because of the way it's written it's best if it is read individually to each of your children. I wouldn't recommend it for "group" reading unless you want to change some of the words to make it fit.
The message is simple yet so powerful as it describes to your child how truly special and wonderful they are. Even when they are not with us, God i. It helps to instill in them that they are always watched over, that there will never be a moment when they are not loved.
I truly enjoyed reading this book to my kids and will continue to read it to them throughout the years. Thanks Max for writing yet another gem for all children.

This is a descriptive book that brings the readers thoughts back to the birth of their own child. I'll never forget the first time I saw you". Written From the perspective of a parent or caregiver (male or female) that believes that there child was a Gift from god. This book has much that a Christian parent wants to tell their child about god, how much they love their child and "I am here for you and always will be". At the same time it seems to talk about death by describing heaven which I may skip the next time I read it to them.
My 2 year old daughter loved me reading this to her. It could be read to most ages. I loved that it brought my thoughts to the first site of my own children. I was not impressed however with the way one of the images was cut off. I am not sure if that is a glitch in the kindle version. I also found that the ending did not flow very well together. I thought It should have been 2 books with the part about heaven being a separate book to explain death to children.

BethAzusa, CAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great ReminderOctober 16, 2011BethAzusa, CAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Just In Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado illustrated by Toni Goffe is a children's book with a great message to children from their parents. It reminds the reader just how much the child has changed since birth, but reminds them of how much the parent's love will not change. And finally, it encourages the child reader that God loves them so much and that the parent will be with them forever in heaven someday "just in case you ever wonder".
The reminder through the story is wonderful and precious. The illustrations were fair, but could have been a bit higher quality. I definitely recommend this story for parents or grandparents for their children or grandchildren. I received this book from BookSneeze.com in exchange for my honest review.
Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5October 11, 2011Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just In Case You Ever Wondered, written by Max Lucado and Illustrated by Toni Goffe, is an adorable book written to help those little listening ears understand how important they are to their parents and also to God.
The book begins by sharing how important children are to God, so important that God made the decision to bring them into existence. Max continues by describing the various elements of existence within a child, elements that they would understand, elements that God created uniquely within them.
Several turns of the pages brings about a transition from God, into the child's parent or in essence the one who would be sharing the subject matter with them. These remaining pages serve to solidify the understanding of the relationship between the reader and the listener, the parent and the child, the grandparent and grandchild.
This book is heartwarming in that it puts into words the feelings that most parents and/or grandparents strive to express to those little loved ones within their lives. It helps to remove any doubt of being unloved. But if those feelings do arrive, its pages can be turned, and its words can be read_.Just In Case.
The contents, the purpose, and the wonderful illustrations make this book a must have for all adults blessed by the pitter patter of little feet.
