“Just how wide, how deep, and how big is the love of God really?” This is the question on the flyleaf of this beautiful children’s book by author Max Lucado. The answer? “God love is like the ocean…It’s always here. It’s always deep. It never ends. God’s love is special.” It’s a powerful message and a timeless truth that comes alive alongside illustrations by T. Lively Fluharty that could stand alone as a wordless book.

The subtitle of this interesting book by Trina Paulus reads, “A tale — partly about life, partly about revolution and lots about hope for adults and others (including caterpillars who can read).” Though it’s not overtly Christian in content, the book does a wonderful job of exploring the futility of following the crowd and the process of transformation in our lives — the sacrifices that must be made, how we have to die to ourselves and our old way of life to make room for something new. Children will love and adults won’t miss the nuances of the evolving story.
The title page of this visually stunning book says, “The biblical Psalms describe a whole range of emotions, from joy and wonder to sadness and regret. This collection of Psalms, paraphrased for young readers, uses simple yet powerful imagery to help children express their feelings.” And it’s true. Psalms for Young Children does help kids express their feelings but that’s only part of the story. Working through its pages with a young reader, you will quickly discover its value as a prayer book, teaching them to pray, and a songbook, teaching them to worship.
