Love Letters From God is a very beautiful and unique book filled with bible stories for children. Written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp, it's a wonderful way to introduce these stories to children ages four to eight.
But this book is different than other children's bibles, because after each story, there is a loving and encouraging letter for the child to open, each letter tucked away in it's own lift-the-flap envelope. This letter is from God, and offers encouragement, and hope, and lets each child feel very special and loved.
Love Letters From God includes eighteen of the most popular Bible stories, and each story is written in a way that children can understand and learn from them.
Following each story, the child will find their own letter from God, and each letter elaborates and is relevant to the story being told. Parents will love the way these ideas are introduced to their children, and the unique letters filled with God's love.
The illustrations in this book are so beautiful, and it will take awhile to look through the book so that you can appreciate all the details in the pictures. The colors are bold and eye catching, and will certainly be fascinating for children.
After your child has listened to all the loving letters sent to him or her, they then have the chance to write their own letter to God. At the end of the book is a special blank letter where a child can express his own feelings to God, and know that it will be read by him.
It's a wonderful way to express back their own loving feelings to God, and is sure to make parents smile when they hear what their child would like to say.
I think this book is absolutely lovely, and I especially like how it only portrays God as a loving figure. one who offers love and comfort to all children.
It's also a wonderful book to introduce bible stories to young children in a way that they can understand, and encourage them to form the questions that they are bound to ask. Children will love the letters from God, and will feel that they are written just for them.
This book would make a wonderful gift for any child in your life that you want to introduce Bible stories to, with the added letters that make it so very special.
I was given a copy of this book for review, and am expressing my own personal feelings and opinions here.
