I Love "I Love You This Much" from Zonderkidz!

I Love You This Much: A Song of God's LoveOne of my favorite things to do is read books to children . . . there are so many enjoyable and delightful children's books available! I recently had the opportunity to review the book, "I Love You This Much" by Lynn Hodges and Sue Buchanan. I particularly appreciate how the text is simple and repeats, "I love you this much" . . . which of course provides the wonderful opportunity for a grandma to stretch her arms wide and then give her grandchild a grandma bear hug!  "I love you this much. I love you best. I love you most. I love you high. I love you low. I love you deep. I love you wide. I love you, I love you I love you this much!" In addition, I especially appreciate how this book allows grandma - or grandpa or dad or mom - to share God's love with a young child, "And what He says is true.  He holds you in his loving arms; you feel His tender touch.” Use this book to share with a child how very much God loves them and will always be with them!
