Most of the photos show baby animals with parents in protective mode. One photo shows a small, furry white polar bear standing beneath the enormous body of the strong daddy polar bear, and the caption reads, "I am never alone."
Another photo shows a mother penguin rubbing her beak along the face of her little chick penguin, and the caption states, "Mama kisses my cheek." Some of the animal photos are linked to Bible stories, such as a photo of a giant blue whale that has the caption, "God kept Jonah safe inside the whale."
Because the animal photos are humorous or outright cute, this is a book children will enjoy viewing many times. The biblical lessons are subtle but obvious enough for 4- to 7-year-old readers. God Is with Me Through the Day is fun and scripturally accurate. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
Christy Lockstein5 Stars Out Of 5November 23, 2009Christy LocksteinGod 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.
Abi4 Stars Out Of 5November 10, 2009AbiAny 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.
