God Loves Me More Than That

Reading God Loves Me More Than That written by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrated by David Hohn is a wonderfully imaginative way for children and adults to think about the unlimited scope of the Lord’s love. This book reminded me in some ways of Guess How Much I Love You classic written by Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram. The love relationship between parent and child is explored in both. In this book, however, the intimate connection is between a child, God the Father and Jesus Christ.
This book hints about the magnitude of the Lord’s love for His children as it is expressed in Ephesians 3:17-19. It allows the child to go on an adventure to explore God’s profound affection. Carefully crafted metric rhymes and inviting illustrations draw you in to different aspects of nature and creation in order to give you some concrete comparisons for how “wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”     
I’d definitely recommend this book. The rhymes are soothing and the illustrations are bright and colorful. I love that the focus is on the scope of God’s love and presents in such imaginative ways how great it is. What a wonderful mini meditation this is for children and adults to share together on the immeasurable love of the Lord.
I received God Loves Me More Than That for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for this review. For more information about this book or to order your own copy, click here.
