**I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Tommy Nelson, in exchange for an honest review**
With three small grandchildren and being a book lover, myself, I’m always looking for great books to add to our family library. I love to take the grandbabies in my arms and read to them.
When I was offered the opportunity to read and review, God, I Know You’re There by Bonnie Rickner Jensen, illustrated by Lucy Fleming and published by Tommy Nelson, I jumped at the chance.
This beautifully made, sturdy board book was everything I had hoped, and more.
The illustrations are charming as well as colorful and bright and the simple, comforting story is one that I know my grandchildren will be asking to read over and over again.
Recently, my granddaughter, came to visit and we sat down to read the book.
She excitedly pointed to the each page and laughed seeing the characters catch rain in a hat and watching lightning with a raccoon in a tent.
At three years’ old, she is just starting to ask questions about God and always reminds us to pray before meals. Reading this book together provided the perfect opportunity to talk to her about God and how He loves her.
Here’s what the publisher says about God, I Know You’re There
Where is God? Is He real?
Look closely and you can see God’s touch all over creation. Like the sun, God is warm. Like the stars, God is dazzling. Like the wind, God is all around, everywhere. God, I Know You’re There, by bestselling author Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrator Lucy Fleming, reminds children of the nearness and goodness of God. Children will discover that God never leaves their side, even if they can’t see or feel Him.
Each page will help children understand the many things in the world we can’t see, touch, or hear are just as real as God is. And even if God feels distant, He is real and He is near.
