Product Description

Where Does Love Hide? by Mary Manz Simon is a great way for children ages 1 to 3 years to be reminded that not only do they receive love, but they have the opportunity to share love too! This lift-the-flap book features a surprise hiding on every page, plus a memory verse and an example of a way to share God's love.

Publisher's Description

In Where Does Love Hide? children are reminded that they not only receive love but have the opportunity to share love. Looking under the fun, lift-a-flap feature, children will see examples of everyday love opportunities. Each page includes a memory verse and an example of a way to share God’s love. In life, children hear the words “I love you” repeatedly, often beginning before birth. However, because love is an abstract concept and young children are concrete thinkers, they must gradually learn to understand love by what they experience. In Where Does Love Hide? children are given the opportunity to see love in action and learn what love looks like.

    Love Hides Close By

    Until I put it on display, love is sometimes hard to see.

    Dr. Mary Manz Simon invites pint-sized theologians to embark upon a delightful scavenger hunt, looking for all the places love hides in the daily life of a preschooler. She does this with precision, because when we demonstrate the love of God to others, it is not with the intention of motivating Him to love us in return or to increase His love for us. Rather, we love Him (and others) because He first loved us, and all our acts of love or obedience serve to demonstrate the unselfish mercy and grace that is Gods love.

    So . . . where does love hide?

    Readers will find six replies, hidden under the flaps that have been incorporated into the construction of Hannah Woods large, vivid illustrations which feature a rainbow of children who have been caught in the act of being good with actions with which even the youngest toddler can identify.

    My grandsons tiny fingers were well able to grasp and open the flaps, and it turns out that love hides very close at hand, for the revelation of love can come with an invitation to a friend, a sharing of cookies, a cheerfully executed chore, or practical services offered to the weak or the elderly.

    Relevant and simply stated Scripture verses make a solid case for each example of loving deeds and will help parents (and grandparents!) to set the example in establishing memory habits as they work together to learn the verses. A fun way to encourage this would be to let the child pull back the flap and give the answer to the question while the adult says the verse and then switch roles.

    Giving and receiving love involves words as well as actions that lend weight to those words. After all, God Himself communicated His love to us through the Word, but He didnt stop there:

    God demonstrated His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, Romans 5:8.

    When our children join Him in the joy of giving, His love is put on display for all the world to see.

    It is a rare day when we dont read to our daughter, and some days include a lot of reading. This is one selection that we both enjoy landing in the book pile for the day. She loves the flaps to lift on every page. I love the language of love being an action beyond just saying words and need to reminder for my own heart as much as hers. This book is simple and short, but perfect for a young audience. If desired, this could be an excellent teaching tool for talking with toddlers throughout the day of what it looks like to love. A- for me.

    Where Does Love Hide? by Mary Manz Simon is simple way to introduce younger children to acts associated with showing our love toward one another. The illustrations by Hannah Wood draw readers and listeners in keeping engagement from start to finish. The imagery features bright colors and smiling faces on every single page.

    This book is bit too simple for any child over the age of three years old. I would say three and younger is the ideal fit. Little ones that adore lift the flap books will really like this one. My nearly 8-month-old daughter loves when I read this book and lift the flap on each page. She gets super excited and wants me to do it again and again! Though the message is probably lost on her at this age, I know as she grow in God and in understanding this book will be read again and again.

    It takes connects the word "Love" with actions to the words. Everyday actions such as helping with the groceries, sharing cookies, taking turns, and so are included. These practical things children can tie to their likely day to day happenings. In this book, children will learn how they receive love and ways to give it themselves. A great book to reinforce the message that we love God because he first loved us.

    I like that every single two-page spread features a Bible verse. Most of the verses are shorter and simplified for young children. There's a note to parents in the back that instructions how to apply what's read in the book to the lives of their child (children). Basically that our children will mimic what they see. We are their biggest example!

    My only con with this book is that there are several pages full of book text, dedication, etc. Usually, board books compile that information into less space.

    Overall I feel this is a sweet book for young ones. It would make a nice gift with Valentines Day around the corner. It certainly will be mixed into the lot of books I'll be reading leading up to that date to my children.

    This is a very simple, basic childrens board book emphasizing the love of Christ and the love of others. It includes lift-the-flap on every page along with a bible verse to corroborate the short statement about love. This builds a very important link between real life and Scripture.

    Simons main objective through the book is to allow kids to understand the many places love can be given and received. This book is aimed at children 1 to 3 years old. I read it to my 4 year old son. Although he enjoyed doing the lift-the-flaps, I could tell he was a bit bored as the book was too simple for him.

    I received this book free from Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.
