The children's book, "God Loves Me More Than That", well written in rhyme form by Dandi Daley Mackall and beautifully illustrated by David Hohn, will make a wonderful addition to any home and Sunday school library.

The hardcover picture book is for ages 4-8 and is published by WaterBrook Press. The plot is stated simply in that a little boy is reflecting on God's love for him. Having 3 wonderful grandsons, this book had me at the first opening line, "How mush love does God have for me? More than the letters between A and Z."

I especially love that David Hohn really has the details in the child's face down with such great illustrations. If one can picture or fathom the love of God for themselves, then you will be very surprised with the author's metaphorically delightful ways as "Just how much does the Lord's love weigh? More than elephants munching hay." ***** stars! I love the book! ( )

God Loves Me More Than That by Dandi Daley Mackall does not disappoint when it comes to the illustrations, which were done by David Hohn. Each page is a new adventure for your child.

How much love does God have for me?
More than the letters between A and Z.
More than the bumbles in a bumble bee.
Gold loves me more that that!

From the moon, and the sea, to the prairie and beyond your child will hear though rhymes how much God loves them each and every day of their lives. If you have young children or grandchildren this very cute book containing a very important message is perfect for your home library!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. ( )

What wonderful rhythm! My favorite children's books are always the ones with great rhythm that are wonderful riddles full of giggles. This is a great addition of Rhymes to my children's book collection and what a great message. Such a wonderful way to show a child just how much they are loved. So much bigger, deeper, wider, and just plain more than that. Highly recommended. ( )

My daughter already has much of this title memorized due to rolling cadences that beg to be read aloud and recited.

How much love does God have for me?
More than the letters between A and Z
More than the bumbles in a bumble bee.
God loves me more than that!

Those are the words that I overheard my eldest ‘reading’ to my 2 year old in the bed tonight.

The quotation above is the first stanza which provides a repeating form for each following section of verse. Each quatrain ends with the line “God loves me – than that!” Fill in the blank with more than, deeper than, softer than, louder than, bigger than and others! God’s love for us is immense, far larger than we can conceptualize.

This title reminds me of a bed-time game I play with my girls, familiar to many parents. I call it “I love you more than.” We take turns saying how much we love each other; “I love you higher than the tallest tree.” I say. “Well, I love you to the moon and back.” My daughter replies. Going on for quite some time, the conversation ends with my concluding remark, “But you know who loves you more than even I do?” “Yes, God!” my daughter answers joyfully, she knows the drill. Drawing from this same vein and tradition God Loves Me More Than That makes a perfect addition to family bedtime rituals.

Hohn’s illustration takes Mackall’s not entirely uncommon imaginings of God’s love: deeper than a treasure chest beneath the sea, higher than a space shuttle flying by, etc., and takes them in to the realm of the fantastic. Hohn places the little boy who is reflecting on God’s love for him amongst hippo’s dancing in the rain, on a bumble bee’s back and as a cowboy on horseback on the range to mention only a few. We are clearly immersed in the realm of the imagination, and are treated to a fantastic voyage through this little boy’s daydreams.

No descriptions found.

Simple, rhyming text explores the extent of God's love, which is more than the bumbles in a bumblebee and softer than a kitten's sneeze.
