This is a hardback book for younger children. The illustrations are nicely done, colorful and very attractive. There are really not many words on each page. The highest I counted was 11 and that was only one place in the book. The rest of the pages probably averaged 3-6 large size words. It talks about how God's great love is created the world and everything including "you". Then goes on to mention how God's great love is with you - where and when. The main character is the little girl on the front, which is super cute by the way, except to me it kind of makes the book a little "girlish". You know geared toward girls. I don't really think that is the authors intent, but she is on almost every page and there was only one page with a boy. I have a boy... so I know how boys might think (smile). Overall, I think the book is beautiful! It would make a really wonderful gift for a special little one in your life. On a side note, there is one missing fact and that is that God loved us so much He sent His son to save us. For that I can only give it 4 stars instead of 5 - Knowing about God's love is amazing, but knowing what He is willing to do because He loves us is even more amazing. I was blessed to receive a copy of this book courtesy of Zonderkidz and Flyby Promotions. I was not asked or required to review positively.
God's Great Love for You by Rick Warren is an amazing book for kids! I love how well it teaches kids that Gods love is with them wherever they go. The illustrations are beautiful and my kids enjoy thumbing through the books just to look at the illustrations. It's the perfect way to teach kids that God is with them wherever they go and is never ending. God's Great Love for You by Rick Warren has quickly become one of my families favorite books! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for writing this post.
GOD'S GREAT LOVE FOR YOU is a very short children's book that is about how much God love's us. It is okay for babies, but I don't think the age limit suggested above is good unless the child wasn't raised in church. I don't like it because God loved us so much He sent His son to die for our sins and that was not even mentioned at all. I think it should've been. Otherwise, it was okay. Maybe public libraries, or church nurseries would enjoy this book, or maybe for a baby gift. I thought one, Mom said 3 so we're compromising. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
