This fall I have been reading so many great new books to my children. One of our favorites has been God’s Great Love for You, written by #1 New York Times bestselling author and respected pastor Rick Warren. His other work includes The Purpose Driven Life, which so many of us are familiar with.
This beautiful children’s book will take your child on a beautiful and whimsical journey through the world, teaching that wherever they go, no matter what kind of day they’re having, God’s love is with them.
Ya’ll, these illustrations, by Chris Saunders, are beyond breathtaking! They envelop all that Rick Warren has written in the simple yet poignant text, and you are sure to find each page striking. Our favorite part of the illustrations has been following a ribbon, or streamer, representing God’s love, throughout the pages. Hidden in plain sight, we find it is always with the child, no matter where she goes. Her other companion is a dove that is always around her.
The text is so simple, yet far from twaddly, and truly meaningful for a young child (and many adults, I’m sure). A true sign of a great piece of children’s literature is when read by an adult, not only can we enjoy reading it aloud, but we also find meaning in the message along side our children. This is one of those sweet books!
The large hardcover book has 32 thick glossy pages that will keep your children coming back for more. My kids have sat and looked at the pictures in this book over and over! Each time, they find something else beautiful about the story.
God’s Great Love for You will make a perfect Christmas gift for the child in your life.
