Love Letters from God: Review and Giveaway!

We love books in our house and are always on the look out for new ones to read. I was recently sent a copy of Love Letters from God to review. It is written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp.

What is it?

Love Letters from God is a beautifully written book that takes 18 well known Bible stories from both the Old and New Testament and shares them in a way that makes the stories relatable to children. Each story has a title with the scripture reference listed right underneath as to which Bible story is it about. The stories talk about the Bible character and what situation they are going through or facing and how it got resolved. There is even dialogue written out as to what they might've even said or prayed which helps bring the Bible stories to life for children.

At the end of each story is a box called "God's Wonderful Words to You" which shares a Bible verse that sums up the story you just read and give an assurance of God's love & promises that ties into the story.

In addition to the well written story, beautiful illustrations and Bible verses is also a "Love Letter from God" in the form of a flip up section at the end of each story. Before you open it, it looks like a letter received in the mail with a stamp & postmark on it. Once you open it, it starts out with saying Dear ________ which allows you to write the child's name on it to personalize the letter. Each letter sums up the story that was just read as if God was recapping it to the child. The letter also encourages and reminds them personally of His love while reminding the child that they too can strive for the same characteristics each Bible hero had (strength, wisdom, faith, etc).

At the end of the book there is a personal invitation that is written out just like an invitation would be. In it, it invites the child to become part of Jesus' team, assuring the child that they can always have Jesus with them. On the opposite page is a blank letter that allows the child to write their own love letter to God.

My thoughts:

This was such an enjoyable book to read with my youngest 2 children. The target ages for this book is 4-8 but I felt like children both younger & older than this would enjoy reading it. I found that the stories were scripturally sound (in that they didn't add or take away from the Biblical account). Sometimes reading the Bible stories straight from the Bible to younger children makes them difficult to understand or relate to for a child but this book bridges the gap and helps them relate and understand the story better. I did make sure my children knew that the love letters weren't truly written by God himself but rather what someone thinks God would be saying to them if he was sitting right by them talking to them in conversation.

This book is a hardback book with a cover jacket that looks just like the outside of the book. Each story spans 2 pages so it makes it easy to see everything all at once while you are reading. It would make a wonderful, personalized gift for your children or grandchildren!
