Delightfully Answers a Child's Deepest Question

Whether spoken or thought, most children at one time wonder just how much God loves them. They can be pretty confident of their parent's love with the tangible signs of affection shown. But it's not as easy to understand the love of the Creator for his creation. This book answers a child's question in a thoroughly delightful way.

Covering how high, deep and wide God's love is as well as how loud, how big and how soft (an aspect I had not personally considered), the author Dandi Daley Mackall ties the answers to something a child can relate to: a wishing well for deep, a football game for loud, and so on.

Each visual answer puts a child front and center in the adventures--whether up in space, in the ocean or on the back of a bumblebee (wouldn't that be cool?). Each illustration provides the reassurance that God's love is even MORE than all the situations described.

The rhythmic prose is the perfect accompaniment to the rollicking illustrations. And the variations of the refrain, "He loves me more than that" will gently reinforce that concept into young hearts and minds. My 3 year old quickly was chiming on that refrain. We both really enjoyed the book.

A perfect addition to any home or church library, you can purchase directly from the publisher at Waterbrook Multnomah for $9.99. This title is also available at the following retailers:
