contemplativereflections5 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: My Great Big GodAugust 8, 2017contemplativereflectionsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0In "My Great Big God," Andy Holmes and Marta Alvarez Miguens team up to introduce young children to God and His attributes through twenty Bible stories. Although the book is not considered a children's Bible, the chapters progress from creation and ends with a reiteration of the Great Commission to tell others about how great God is. Many of the stories selected are typical but some are interesting choices such as Moses receiving the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai. Of the Christian children books I have read, this one has the most vibrant illustrations with careful attention to detail. For example, in the story about Joseph and his brothers, each individual is uniquely crafted with different clothes and physical attributes. As for the content, what I found most captivating is the author's ability to summarize the entire story in a small paragraph. Also, the author maintains an appropriate balance of being true to original story while allowing some room for imagination. Furthermore, Holmes applies rhyme and meter in his sentences which makes the reading fun and engaging for both parents and children alike. The reading level would be suitable for ages two to five but younger children would likely enjoy having parents point out the bright pictures and sound out the catchy sentences.
I would gladly recommend this wonderful book to all kids who want to learn about our great God who creates, sustains, and rules over all things. The book is helpful in focusing on how the biblical narrative reveals God to us rather than simply drawing out a moral lesson that we can learn. Moreover, it is imperative for young children to attain a strong grasp of who God is as this has significant implications on how they view the world that they are exploring every day.
