MaryAnnORAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Readaloud and ReassureJune 15, 2020MaryAnnORAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This endearing picture book would make a nice gift for a new baby. The story is told using bears, but the situations are ones children easily identify with, however if your child does not deal with the fears mentioned you may want to skip those pages so as not to put the ideas into their mind. The text reassures little ones of a father's love and especially God's love. The promise made of always being there may not be able for parents to fulfill, so I wish it had emphasized more that God is the one who will always be there and care for you even if people can't be. The conclusion discusses heaven, which would be more appropriate for an older child or saved until there's a need to deal with it. I do wonder why only one parent is included rather than both parents. The illustrations are cute--some of the outdoor scenes remind me of Europe. This sweet story will make a child feel special and can help form a stronger bond between the adult reader and the youngster listening. I received a copy from Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
soccerkidsmomAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Very nice bookJanuary 3, 2020soccerkidsmomAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5With over a million and a half copies sold, Max Lucado's JUST IN CASE YOU EVER WONDER is definitely a best-seller in children's literature. While the first edition was written using humans, this one uses bears and has newly-updated full-color illustrations by Eve Tharlet, making it even more appealing to young readers at this present time. The parent bear tells the young child bear that he/she is special and very loved, and they are reassured that the parent will always be there for the child through various life situations, 'just in case you ever wonder'. This book tells the child that God loves them and will never leave them and is always watching over them too. The hardcover book comes with a dustjacket, and is written for ages 3-7.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
MandyVirgie, KYAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Story Full Of TruthDecember 11, 2019MandyVirgie, KYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This beautifully illustrated book has equally beautiful and moving words by the great Max Lucado. I have adored Mr. Lucado's adult books for years now. And what I have found to be consistent throughout his books, including this children's book, is that he tells the Truth. He does not tip toe around hard subjects. He hits them head on and then tells about a loving God and His Son, Jesus Christ, Who has the answers for all problems in this life. I'm thankful for authors like Mr. Lucado who isn't afraid to tell the world about our Savior. This book is geared toward children, but also speaks to adults. The story explains to kids that their parents love them so and God does as well. The book goes on to say that hard things are going to come in life, that's life, but we serve a God that loves us, knows us, and will indeed help us!
Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Just in Case...October 25, 2019Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5JUST IN CASE YOU EVER WONDER is a much loved children's book by acclaimed author Max Lucado. I was given a copy by my grandmother of the first printing when my oldest son was a baby and it was a much loved and often read book to both my sons and my oldest daughter (then it got lost in a move).
This new version of JUST IN CASE YOU EVER WONDER features adorable bears and not at all scary artwork, plus a valuable message for children and adults alike. It reminds children of a parents or grandparents love and reminds an adult of God's love.
Make sure you grab a copy of JUST IN CASE YOU EVER WONDER for your favorite child or as a baby shower gift. Recommended.
I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

I bought this wonderful book when it was first published years ago, and it is an honor to be able to reviewJust In Case You Ever Wondernow in this new updated edition. The same wonderful story is that God made us as we are, He loves us, and we are important to Him. It also teaches how wanted and how important they are to their parents. And whatsmall child isn't afraid of the dark? I love that author Max Lucado teaches children that God is there for them through difficult times. Whether it be afraid of the dark, that unfriendly person at school, or in any situation, God will always love them in any situation they deal with.
And I love the new illustrations in this updated edition of this precious little book as well. They are so beautiful, and after hearing the story, I love that small children can tell the story just by the illustrations. The book is hardcover with a dust jacket, which I will keep nice and clean, but if the dust jacket does get roughed up, the hardcover is the same beautiful picture. All in all, you can tell I love this book. Parents need books to teach their children about God's love and what better choice can you have thanWhat small child isn't afraid of the dark? And what better choice can you have thanJust in Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucdo.I strongly encourage you to check out this amazing little book.
