How do our kids know how to do that? This book shares ideas and examples of every day life and seeing how love plays in it.

JanetBelton, TXAge: 45-54Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5Stories to Share with Your Kids in the Coming YearDecember 18, 2018JanetBelton, TXAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Fans of Bob Goff's popular book for adults, Love Does, will be excited to learn that he and his daughter have written a children's version. I haven't yet read the grown-up version, so I can't compare. I can only tell you about the book for kids.
Love Does for Kids is a quality hardcover book with 46 stories about the Goff family that illustrate their beliefs about love in action, faith revealed in how one lives one's life. Each story ends with a comparison to something that happened in the Bible or a simple observation about God. These would make great bedtime stories and could be used to start discussions about how Christians respond to God's love by living loving lives.
My only wish is that the authors or publishers would have included some Scripture references, so families could easily look up the stories or concepts for themselves. I always appreciate ideas firmly backed by the Bible's authority.
I thank Tommy Nelson Kids for sending me a complimentary copy of this book, so I could share my thoughts about it here. I plan to share the stories with my children in the coming year.
Elena Wiggins5 Stars Out Of 5Love Does for Kids reviewDecember 5, 2018Elena WigginsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I adored Bob Goff's Love Does and his recently published Everybody, Always. He has a great way of being engaging and entertaining with his large-than-life personality and real stories while also being inspiring and thought-provoking in the way he compels readers to put show love through action. In this kid-friendly version of Love Does, Bob and his daughter Lindsey bring many of his life lessons on loving as Jesus loved to a younger audience. Many of the original stories from Love Does are included with language tweaked slightly for younger readers but still capturing the same message. There are also new stories that are specifically geared towards kids as well. The adorable illustrations that accompany each of the forty-six short essays help tell each story for kids who are more visually inclined. Both parents and children can enjoy the extraordinary life of Bob Goff, who uses his wealth in a multitude of adventurous ways to point others to Jesus love and to help them see how deeply and truly they are loved.

The book itself is very well illustrated. The pictures are pretty nice. As far as the content, I enjoyed the stories that were shared within this book. Each story allowed a glimpse of Bob and Lindsey's life. I loved how children can easily connect with stories within this story. A child would enjoy hearing this. As an adult, I was able to reflect on my own life. This books also gives some questions for thought that a child could answer and even a bit of an application and view of how godly living should be. Very enjoyable read.
LindseyGAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing, Amazing, Amazing book for all ages!!!!November 7, 2018LindseyGAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I cannot say enough great things about this book. If you have a child, get this book and read it together. I fell in love with Bob Goff's book Love Does. I was over the moon excited when I saw him and his daughter wrote a version for kids and was so honored to be selected to read and review it. The language is written to where my six year old had no problems understanding. And it was simply amazing to watch how he connected with the stories, asked relevant questions and watched his heart grow stronger for God through this book. That alone sold me, but there is so much more to brag on with this book. The stories are a beautiful integration of life experiences with how to love God, love others and explain God's love and grace. As an adult I was encouraged reading this book. "Not only does God love you but He really likes you." Such a positive message we all need to be reminded of, regardless of our age. And the anecdotes in each story - they are written in a manner that a kid can relate to (even us big kids) while always pointing us towards God. And as if that's not enough, the illustrations are out of this world great and engaging. This book is the total package whether you read it as a family, your child on their own, you as an adult or even use it in your child's Sunday School class. I can promise you this book will be gifted to many nieces and nephews (and several adults...) for Christmas. I cannot recommend this book enough. Buy it, read it, check it out, and let us all learn to love so beautifully as Christ loves us.
My thanks to Bob Goff, Lindsey Goff Viducich, Thomas Nelson Children's Publishing and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. It truly was an honor.
