Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp is a beautiful book that covers Bible stories from Creation through the Resurrection and ends with an invitation to accept Christ. Each story segment is told in an engaging story-type manner and includes a love letter from God to the child. There is a text box with “God’s Wonderful Words to You” that includes a scripture verse for the child.
The Bible stories included are:
- The Fall
- David and Goliath
- Jesus’ Birth
- The Twelve
- Feeding 5,000
- Jesus calms the storm
- The Parable of the Lost Sheep
- The Last Supper
- The Crucifixion
- The Resurrection
And after the invitation to join Jesus’ team, there is a place for your child to write a love letter to God.
We love how pretty the illustrations are. They are bright and engaging and really add to the stories. And Mr. T loves anything that is lift-the-flap. It’s very nice how the letters “from” God are written in first person, and though the scripture references are not give, the main ideas in the letters can all be traced back to God’s Word.
Love Letters from God is a great book to have for introducing your child to God and how much He loves them. It is geared toward ages 4-8. The sturdy hardcover and quality paper are sure to hold up to years of loving and reading. I think you will enjoy having this in your library!
