Book Review: God Loves Me More Than That by Dandi Daley
God Loves Me More Than That, by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by David Holn, is a beautifully illustrated rhyming story about the powerfulness and gentleness of God’s love for a child. The thick pages boast soothing colors with entertaining, imaginative pictures. The book features a boy questioning God’s love for him and finding just how great God’s love is.
I love the book. The storyline has a great, rhythmic flow and the illustrations are wonderful. I love how it reassures the reader of God's love for them. The only thing I find disappointing is that the only character is a boy. It would have been so much better if they had included a girl on every other page. My girls enjoyed the book, but I think that they would have enjoyed it even more if there had been a female character portrayed on some of the pages. This is a great picture book for children up to age 7-8.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. This review contains my honest opinions.
