Illustrated By: David Hohn
Review by A. E. Jaskiewicz
How much does God love
me? That is a question that may seem
difficult to answer. After all, God’s
love is supposed to be the greatest thing of all. In
‘God Loves Me More Than That’, Dandi Daley
Mackall sets out to show children exactly how great God’s love for us
The story starts with this
simple question, “How much love does God have for me?”
Then, the reader is sent on a whimsical
rhyming journey which shows different things that God’s love is greater
than. Some are simple (more than the
A to Z), and some are more funny (heavier than Elephants munching on
hay). However, every example conveys the
message to the reader. God’s love is
greater than anyone could possibly measure.
Throughout the book, readers
are treated to a fun and often funny rhyming tale.
There are so many great examples that are
used for things that God’s love is greater than, children will be
over and over again. Every child is sure
to have a favorite example from the book, as there are examples that
every interest a child could possibly have.
There are some that will appeal to boys, some to girls, some to
enthusiasts, some to animal lovers, and everyone in between. Plus, the fun and melodic rhyming in the book
is sure to keep a young child’s attention.
The illustrations in the book
are bright and colorful. Every example
that is given in the book is accompanied by a fun and whimsical
kids can see exactly what is being explained.
The pictures are the perfect accompaniment to the text, which
enhance the enjoyment for any young child.
The language used in the book
is definitely on a level that even very young children will be able to
easily. Even if a child is not sure what
something means, they will be able to easily figure it out just by
the corresponding picture that goes along with each example.
‘God Loves Me More Than That’
is a fun and whimsical book with a wonderful message for young ones. It is something that will both provide a good
message to kids, while also providing them with a fun book that they
reading and seeing over and over again.
As I said, no matter what their interest may be, this book is
capture it in one way or another, which makes it appropriate for kids
