God Loves You

If you’re a fan of the “Little Blessings” books, you’re sure to want to add God Loves You, written by Kathleen Long Bostrom and illustrated by Elena Kucharik, to your collection. Written in rhyme, like the other books in the series, the text makes it clear that no matter what you look like, feel like or act like, God still loves you.

Here’s a sample of the text:

You can be short
or you can be tall.
You can be big
or you can be small.
Your size and your shape
don’t matter at all.
God loves you just as you are.

The illustrations are similar to those in other books in the series: cute, colorful and child-like. The pictures fill double-paged spreads with corresponding borders on one page. For instance, a picture of two children playing in a sandbox has a border with a sand-like print, while a page with a boy and his pets has a border with paw prints on it.

What I Like: Everything. This is truly another delightful, child-friendly book with catchy rhymes and colorful illustrations. Its size, and the fact that it’s a board book, makes it ideal for little hands. And it’s message, that God loves you, no matter what, makes it ideal for anyone.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: Baby to preschool.

Publisher Info: Tyndale Kids, 2001; ISBN: 0842353704; Hardcover: $6.99.
