REVIEW: I liked this colorful board book that has 20 bible story illustrations. The author says these are to build a Great Big Faith on; I think he’s right. I liked how he goes about telling amazing faith building stories which include bible references so you can go deeper – depending on the age of the child.

Each story starts out with the phrase, “My great big God…” then it has about 8 rhyming stanza’s to depict the story and then it ends with “My Great Big God --“Made Everything”, Same line but the last words change for every story.

Here’s a sample “keeps me safe…” –Made me” - …”Guides me!”….”has a plan for me”…”makes big things happen.” All these statements say that we have a great big God who cares for me personally and in many different ways. He’s not too big to care.

After the story about when Jesus goes to the cross the story title is, “A Great Big Job.” And the last line is “My Great Big God Wants Me to be His Helper!”

The author encourages readers to go out and tell others about what Jesus did for us. Show His love to others. Be an encourager.

I liked the stories and the way this was laid out. This is soon to be a family favorite at bed time.
