About The Book:

How much love does God have for me?
More than the letters between A and Z. More than the bumbles in a bumble bee.
God loves me more than that!

As your child revels in each lively rhyme and engaging illustration from this delightful picture book, they’ll 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 your child 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!

My Review:

First of all what drew me to the book was the beautiful cover. It’s gorgeously illustrated by David Hohn. The illustrations throughout the book are beautiful and work wonderfully with the story.

I loved the different ways someone can describe being loved, especially in a way that a child can understand. How high, wide and deep does God love me? Those are some of the basic ways a child might ask how God loves them so Dandi brings in some fun and sweet ways as well. Is God’s love soft or how loud is His love. Don’t those questions just beg an answer?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and wish my kids were just toddler or preschoolers.
