Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist and Illustrated by Sophie Allsopp

Love Letters from God - Zonderkidz
by Glenys Nellist SRV$16.99

Love Letters from God 
by Glenys Nellist and Illustrated by Sophie Allsopp

ISBN: 9780310733843
Zonderkidz - Hardcover - 40 pp
SRV $16.99 - English
Juvenille Nonfiction/Religious/Bible Stories
Published: August 26, 2014

     Did you know that the Bible is God's 'love letter' to us? It's a FACT! And, "Love Letters from God" by Glenys Nellist elaborates on this topic by featuring a beautifully illustrated Bible storybook just for kids ages 4 to 8.  Love Letters from God  features nine Old Testament stories and nine New Testament stories from the Bible. Each  story ends with a special Bible verse promise and a unique lift-the-flap letter. Every envelope is addressed as,  "Your Love Letter from God" and is specially designed to correspond with each Bible story from the inside and out; including the postage stamp.  It begins with the heading and a blank space to personalize their own name. At the end of the book, your child is prompted with a special invitation to join, Jesus' team and a letter is provided for their personalized reply.

     I like that Love Letters from God offers children the opportunity to become more intimate with God in order to encourage a close relationship with him at such a early age in their lives. The personalization of each letter offers encouragement and makes the child feel special. What a wonderful memory keepsake for both parent and child!

     Also, I believe the age range should be more flexible with this particular storybook! My nine year old had no problem reading  it aloud to me. I believe she actually blushed when she was prompted to include her name in the first, Love Letter from God

Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist is available in hardcover, sold at retailers online and nationwide for $16.99.

Here's a new Christmas holiday book for the whole family to enjoy -  Santa’s (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas by DK Simoneau and David Radman. This beautifully illustrated story takes place in the North Pole with Santa on a very cold Christmas Eve night. Immediately, strange occurrences begin to happen to Santa. You can't wait to turn the page to see what happens next. It's an adorable and fun story that your audience is sure to enjoy! 

As a home school parent, I believe that reading is of supreme importance to help facilitate the joy of learning as well as bonding with my children. I loved reading aloud to all my children; especially in the early years. I believe they enjoyed it as well.  I long for the opportunity to share the love of books with my grandchildren, too.

Bring a smile to a child's face this holiday season! Read aloud to a child!  Listen to them read aloud! If you're a parent, grandparent, teacher, scout leader, or childcare worker then I highly recommend sharing this fun and whimsical story with them. Consider making this book part of your current or new holiday tradition.

Happy Holidays,
Janet Coffield & Family
