I love reading books before bedtime with my son. We enjoy reading all kinds of different books together and we’re always excited to find a new book to read. God’s Great Love for You by Rick Warren, Illustrated by Chris Saunders is a very beautiful book to read and is just the right length for reading before bed.

My 10 Year Old Son’s Opinion of God’s Great Love for You
My 10 year old son thought God’s Great Love for You was a good book. He said, “I liked the pictures because they showed an example of what the words were, that they were talking about in the story.” When I asked him what his favorite picture was, he chose the one above. That was the same one that I chose as my favorite! He liked it because he said, “It looks really cool!”
This book is much better suited for younger children, probably ages 2 – 5. However, my son still did enjoy reading it with me, he just noted that there weren’t very many words on each page.
My Opinion of God’s Great Love for You
I thought God’s Great Love for You was a very beautifully illustrated book! Like my son, I liked the pictures because they really did show what the words were conveying.
This picture talks about God’s big love, and that’s definitely shown in the big heart the girl is standing on. I also like how the ribbon from her dress just flows, showing that God’s love is unstoppable. The dove is a nice touch on every page since that often symbolizes God’s love/presence.
The book’s message is that no matter where you are, what time of day it is, or what kind of day you’re having, God is always there with you, loving you. This is a message that the world today definitely needs to hear! What better way than to instill it in the littlest of children so that they will remember this all of their lives. Can you imagine how much better our world would be when those kids grow up, knowing that God loves them and has always loved them?
This book would be really great to read to a Sunday School class, as part of a homeschool curriculum, to your own children, grandchildren, etc.
