God Loves Me More Than That, written by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by David Hohn, seeks to illustrate the size of God's love for us by drawing fun comparisons between simple, everyday occurrences and our Father's compassion.
This book, comprised of simple rhymes, follows a young boy as he looks beyond the ordinary to see how God's love surpasses all. He sees that God's love is high, "higher than the moon in a starless sky!" and wide, "wider than the prairies where the cowboys ride." Each page introduces a new, completely original explanation for the extent of God's love.
Hohn's illustrations could not possibly be any better. A new perspective is offered on each page, putting the boy in a colorful world where he finds himself right at home. He goes from the deep sea to a three-ring circus and everywhere in between. The color and light on each page is flawless. I could go on and on about how great these illustrations are.
Engaging, Interactive, Inspiring?
Our three-year-old really enjoyed this book. Mackall offers something completely new on every page. It's almost like a surprise. A question introduces each new concept inviting the little readers to consider, "Just how much does the Lord's love weigh?" The combination of the creative rhymes and the vibrant illustrations make this book both engaging and inspiring.
This book introduces the most important concept your children should understand–God's love for them surpasses everything imaginable. I appreciated the inclusion of Ephesians 3:17-19 at the beginning of the book. Mackall has rooted this book in the truth of scripture. It's no wonder why both author and illustrator are award winning. I highly recommend it.
