God Loves Me More Than That!

How much love does God have for me?  More than the letters between A and Z.  More than the bumbles in a bumble bee.  God loves me more than that!
God Loves Me More Than That (Dandilion Rhymes)

I recently received a copy of God Loves Me More Than That by Dandi Daley Mackall, illustrated by David Hohn.  This sweet and simple book helps children understand how much God loves them by asking and answering just how big--how high, how deep, how wide--God's love is.  I love the concept of this book--the questions are ones I can imagine my own children asking, and the answers are wonderfully concrete: God's love is "higher than the moon in a starless sky," and "louder than the cheering of a football crowd," and "deeper than a treasure chest beneath the sea."  These are comparisons my kids can relate to.  The repetition of the question/answer format really emphasizes the message that God's love is much more than we can ever imagine, and the simple drawings complement the text beautifully.  This book would make a delightful addition to a young child's bedtime routine.  The one thing I didn't like about the book was the rhymes--I love rhyming books, but with this one I just couldn't get into a good read-aloud rhythm--the rhymes seemed forced to me. 

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.  This review contains my honest opinions.
