Children's Book Review

Once again I have been given a sweet privilege of reviewing some special books that are new in stores this week! This time these books are for children. I have all three books posted and in the order that my children have enjoyed them! Again I have 2 copies of each book to give away!! Leave a comment about your little one and which book interests you and send me your address via my email that is listed on the sidebar and I will send it to you while supplies last!!

The first one is a gentle story that provides satisfying answers for a young child’s most difficult questions about heaven. Parents, grandparents, childcare professionals, librarians, Sunday school teachers, and others will appreciate the gentle approach to a topic that’s on the minds of many “little cubs.”

Through captivating, full-color illustrations and tender, biblically sound storytelling, young readers and those who love them will find reasons to rejoice in knowing that God Gave Us Heaven. This was a fun book to read and it opened the door to conversations about heaven that have been precious to share!

Go here to buy this book!

In two new books from best-selling children’s author Dandi Daley Mackall, clever rhymes and delightful illustrations help young children, ages three and up, understand God’s huge love for them and his joy in creating them. Parents will appreciate the engaging stories that communicate God’s perfect plan and his divine purpose for little hearts.

In God Loves Me More Than That, children learn that God loves them deeper than a wishing well, wider than a semi-truck, louder than thunder, and softer than a kitten’s sneeze. Each question, presented with charming child-like faith will help young ones grasp the great love of God through comparisons and descriptions they can easily understand. In short, they’ll discover that His love is bigger, wider, higher, and deeper than anything they could imagine!

In When God Made My Toes, kids are drawn into the wonder of their creation by God. Their masterful artist who fashioned them just right for amazing and delightful adventures, such as roller skating, finger-painting, doing flips, and drinking cocoa. Children will come to an understanding that God shaped each part of their amazing bodies with joy, delight, and humor.

Thanks very much for the reviews. I find it hard to get the right mix of fun and education with kids' books. Bayard's seem to have solved this problem and cater for for all ages with their series of StoryBoxBooks, AdventureBoxBooks and DiscoveryBoxBooks (which has a special focus on teeth!) They have work by acclaimed children's books illustrator Helen Oxenbury appearing in the Storybox series for September. In addition to this, they also have some great activities for rainy days: http://www.storyboxbooks.com/potatoprinting.php, http://www.adventureboxbooks.com/macaroni-picture-frames.php, http://www.discoveryboxbooks.com/skittles.php Enjoy!

I was so excited to hear about the birth of sweet Eden. I am glad everyone came through like champs.

My own kiddos are a bit older, but my ministry is as a 2 & 3 year old preschool teacher at a Christian school. I would love more faith based books to share with my precious ones. I heard today that you should be led to serve in your life no matter what you choose to do, and God has led me to preschoolers! Thanks for the chance to share these books with my kids...both my own and my students!

Kelly--So excited to read all of these. We've already received one free book from you so don't feel obligated to choose us again, but if you have an extra of God Loves Me More than That, I'd love to share it with my kids and the toddlers I teach. (but only if you have extras :)

I love reading your reviews and am so glad you have this opportunity!

One of my favorite things to do as a Mimi is read to my little ones! I love to take Jack, and now Sam, to places that are way out in imaginary land or just a blink away! Thanks for sharing these titles - I look forward to finding them!

Oh, dear sister - I think my boys would REALLY love all of these books - don't you?!? I love it especially when they start talking about heaven - wondering what it will be like, pondering what all God will have "up there" for us . .I would love reading them a sweet "gentle" book that talks about our home forever. And I really want them to know and understand just how HUGE God's love for them is - these all sound so good! How did you get this fun job, anyway? Love it!
