My Great Big God - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Tommy Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Book Overview:

Bestselling author Andy Holmes takes children on a special journey through 20 of the most loved and known stories in the Bible that illustrate the character of God. Each story is told in adorable rhymes and ends with a fresh takeaway that even the youngest child will understand: My great big God is good! My great big God is powerful! Parents and children alike will love to read these stories together and learn about how wonderful our God is.

With bright, eye-catching illustrations by Marta Alvarez Miguens and thick pages perfect for little hands to hold, My Great Big God will be a family favorite for years to come.

My Review:

I'm probably more unceremonious than most Christians, but teaching my children about the Christian faith has always been important to me.  In some areas of life, I promote individuality and differing points-of-view with my children. However, I can't help but hope and promote my view of my faith with them.  I've done this for several years, with one teaching tool being kids' books that are Christian-based.

My Great Big God is a good resource for children who are learning about stories of the Bible.  This hardback book has twenty short stories, and each one is told in rhyme.  I think that the way the stories are written and that they're not too long are favorable points in keeping your child's attention while reading this book.  Cute illustrations depict each account.  Each story has a scriptural reference so you can look in the Bible to read the entire story.  Throughout this book, children will learn that "My Great Big God" saves the day, guides me, makes big things happen, and forgives.

Win It!

One person will win a My Great Big God children's book.

I am thankful for everything the Lord has given me. My husband, my son, my family, they are all huge blessings. I am thankful for His sacrifice and for Him giving us a place to spend eternity with Him and our loved ones. Romans chapter 10 verse 9 "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
