"I had so much fun making the world! 
But do you know the very best thing I made? 
It was you!"

What child doesn't love to receive mail? In this heartwarming lift-the-flap picture book, children can open and read their own personal mail from God as they experience some of the best-loved stories of the Bible. As each captivating story unfolds, children will eagerly await the opportunity to open the envelope and read God's message of love written especially for them. They will also delight in the final envelope that encourages them to write their own personal letter to God.

My Thoughts

My granddaughters and I love to write letters back and forth to each other. I enjoy doing this because it is an easy way for me to tell them one more time that I love them. It allows me to be a part of their lives even when we are miles apart. 

While it is important to me that they know I love them, it is even more important to me that they know God loves them. In fact He has given them beautiful love letters to assure them of that very fact. Those love letters are found in the Bible. 

In her book Love Letters from God, Glynys Nellist highlights some of the best Bible stories that convey the love of God. Each story is told in a very engaging way that will appeal to young listeners. Along with each story there is a short Bible verse that would be an easy memory verse to help your child remember the truth of God's love. At the end of each story there is a lift-the-flap letter that can be personally addressed to your child and is written to them from God. 

When I was reading this book aloud to a couple of my grandkids their faces just lit up when I read the letters to them. The idea that God would love them so personally that He would pen a letter to them made them feel so special. 

If you have children in your life this would be a great book to purchase for them. The importance of knowing God loves you cannot be overstated. The knowledge of God's love is the best gift that you can give to those special people in your life.
