Book Review: God Loves Me More Than That

by - Friday, January 14, 2011

Written by Dandi Daley Mackall and beautifully illustrated by David Hohn, "God Loves Me More Than That" is a children's book that seeks to explain God's love in ways that they can understand. Children seem to learn by comparing things they already know. The author takes this idea and creates an adventure that takes the children through all the ways that God loves them. 

The book is s written as a poem with each verse of the poem ending with "God loves me more than that." Based on Ephesians 3:17-19 from the Bible, which describes God's love, each four pages of the book explores a different aspect of God's love. The author accomplishes this by answering the questions:

How much does He love me?
How high is His love?
How deep is His love?
and How wide is His love?

We read this book to our daughter who loved it. The illustrations are beautiful and can easily be enjoyed by boys and girls under 8. Young children will especially love the rhyme. My daughter enjoyed anticipating for us to get to the line "God love me more than that" every time. It was like she was taking in what we said and then smiled and giggled when we said that God loves her. Just an amazing time and a fun read. I recommend this book to all families with young children. Both parents and children will love to read this together. It can easily become one of your favorite books!
