Elsie’s is going to be one in a few weeks.. I can’t believe it! Okay, I’m back.. I had to wipe up a few tears.. Ever since her baby shower, we’ve been working on her little library and it has been growing quite rapidly lately, now mostly containing beautiful Christian books. I love this because even though she isn’t quite able to communicate her thoughts, she is always very interested in books and listens when you speak to her. Babies are able to understand more than we sometimes give them credit for and, in most cases, repetition is key in helping develop muscle memory. So the more I read her a book, the more she will remember it the next time we read it together. This makes books like the most recent one we’ve reviewed God’s Great Love for You, written by #1 New York Times best selling author and respected pastor Rick Warren, super important in my eyes because I never want her to forgot how great God’s love for us truly is.
The first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful, whimsical illustrations. While there are not a lot of words, each sentence contained in this book is powerful and describes God’s love for us in a way that resonates with children, even as young as Elsie. Pastor Rick Warren takes children on a whimsical and heartfelt journey that lets them know God’s love is with them wherever they go. It really takes a talented author to convey so much in so little words and pastor Warren was able to do that in God’s Great Love for You!
This book would make a lovely gift for a baby shower, baby dedication or even Christmas (can you believe its next month!?) You can order God’s Great Love for You and other books by pastor Rick Warren HERE!
Who would you gift this beautiful book to?
