God Loves Me More Than That - Book Review

God Loves Me More Than That by Dandi Daley Mackall (illustrated by David Hohm) is a sweet book to help children understand the great is the love of God. I love that the book begins with Ephesians 3:17-19 - I pray that you may grasp how wide, long, high, and deep is the love of Christ. The book takes each concept and gives short easy descriptions and ends with "God loves me more than that." The illustrations are beautiful and the text is short and sweet, yet full of meaning.

My daughter (almost 4 years old) loved the book. The first time I read it to her, she wanted to read it over and over. I had to cut her off after the 3rd reading. I was surprised how many questions it raised in her head. I can definitely say it was a hit at our house.

The only thing I was left longing for was a little snip it as to "why" God loves us so much. However, I don't consider that to be a negative because it is a great discussion starter. I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to it being an on-going hit with my older daughter, and one day, her little sister.

I received this book for free from Waterbrook/Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for this review.
