Children’s Book Review and GIVEAWAY!! — 32 Comments

  1. I love the book “I Love you This Much” with Big and Little Nutbrown Hare. However, Lisa Bergren is my favorite author. I have many of her books for myself and for my 10 yr. old son. We do not have this one however. I would love to win it. Thank you for the opportunity.

  2. Naming a favorite children’s book is nearly impossible. We have so many favorites. We love the Llama Llama books by Anna Dewdney. My kids also like wordless picture books such as the Good Dog, Carl books by Alexandra Day, Goodnight, Gorialla by Peggy Rathmann, and Welcome to the Zoo by Alison Day. As a young girl, one of my favorites was Miss Suzie by Miriam Young.

  3. Our favorite children’s book is Bless Me. It is a simple board book, great to use with a baby or toddler that takes the reader from being thankful for the things in his/her world, to blessing children everywhere.

  4. Hey, thanks for the thorough and thoughtful review–love it! I always like to let readers know that while this series is a good gift for the 2-8 yr old crowd, it’s most effective when they start asking those tough questions–which you highlighted beautifully. Thank you.

    • Thanks for stopping by!

      I love the fact that you deal with biblical principles without being an actual “bible stories” book or devotional. It’s very difficult to find children’s books that deal so directly with God and Jesus that are as much fiction as Christian. I do believe that God Gave Us Love may become one of my all time favorite children’s books. Partly because of the message and partly because I had such a special relationship with my own grandpa and remember having serious discussions like that with him when I was growing up.

  5. Right now my daughter’s favorite books involve Biscuit the puppy or Clifford the Big Red Dog. 🙂 My son really likes the Pigeon books (The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog! is his favorite).


    • We have several Biscuit books too! My daughter hates when I make her practice her reading with them because she just likes for me to read them to her. 🙂

  8. We have God Gave Us You, so I know we’d really enjoy this as well! One of my favorite children’s books is Frog & Toad Together 🙂

    • I really like God Gave Us You too! Its such a beautiful way to explain your child’s birth in an age appropriate way, and still simply beautiful as a story too.

  9. This sounds like a wonderful series. Wesley’s favorite “first” book was Touch and Feel Kitten and now he likes anything with trucks. My favorite book when I was little was called Sky High. Mom said she had read it to me so much that I knew it and could tell her the story without being able to actually read the words.
