God Loves Me More Than That by Dandi Daley Mackall, Illustrated by David Hohn
This is a sweet book about God’s love and its greatness being explained to a child. A question about the expanse of God’s love is asked and then answered with comparisons that a child may be able to grasp. Wider than a prairie, heavier than an elephant, higher than the moon, etc. This is a short book with only one sentence per page, but the pages are full of colorful pictures. I read this with my 4 1/2 year old son and he enjoyed it, especially the ‘wider than a semitruck from side to side’ page, because he likes all things truck related! After reading this, he talked a lot about us loving each other and God loving us, in the same form as the book (ie. larger than, higher than…). A cute book for children and good to discuss Gods great love for them.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review, but my opinion is completely my own.
