grandma's bookshelf - Little One, God Loves You - I'm Giving One Away!

Around this grandma's house, we like books. Allow me to correct this . . . we LOVE books! And, there is no shortage of books to be found! All three of my grandsons enjoy books - whether we are reading the book to them, or they (Josiah) reads the book for himself. This love of books makes this grandma happy!

So, when I was recently invited to review a new book from Zonderkidz, I agreed . . . it has bunnies and is a board book, so I know my young grandsons will enjoy it! 

Little One, God Loves You
Author - Amy Warren Hilliker
Illustrator - Polona Lovsin
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages - 2-4

Favorite Features - 
  • Sturdy board book will hold up to little ones "reading" it for themselves!
  • Colorful, engaging, adorable illustrations - I especially love how when a family is shown, grandparents are included! Excellent!
  • Simple text communicates to young ones how much God loves them!
Zonderkidz says; "Little One, God Loves You is a cute and cuddly board book which lets children know God made them solely for the purpose of loving them. Written in playful rhyme by Amy Warren Hilliker, Rick Warren’s daughter, each stanza conveys one of the five purposes from The Purpose-Driven Life. Through both the words and colorful illustrations, children will learn about God’s love, being a member of God’s family, growing in Christ, helping others, and telling others about God."

I read Little One, God Loves You this morning to my sweet little grandson, Shane (two years old). He loved the illustrations of the bunnies, and after having it read to him, he had to sit down and look through again it on his own! I love the simple text and the way it presents solid concepts about God and how He shows His love to us, and how we can show our love to Him as well.

I'm very happy to say, not only did Zonderkidz send one copy of Little One, God Loves You for me to review, but they are making another available to me to give away (USA only)! The drawing will be on February 16, 2016. If you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and would like to be included in this giveaway, please comment below to tell me one way God has shown His love to you recently . . . of course, my family constantly reminds me of God's love, but I have to say, the way He has opened the door for me to serve with the Legacy Coalition, definitely shows His great love for me!

In addition, if you have followed in Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG, or at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email, you will receive one entry for each of these which you have done. Plus, if you "share" this post, you'll receive another entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win Little One, God Loves You and it gives you several ways to enter the giveaway!

Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know! 


  1. Daily I see His love for me! Most recently He has protected my husband and I from a serious car accident that came close to happening!

  2. I have a similar story from a recent snow storm I was in on my way to work. I couldn't see anything it was a complete white out. I prayed and prayed and within minutes the sky cleared. Roads were still bad but at least I could see where I was on the road and that was all I had prayed for.

  3. I follow on Google+ , gfc, Facebook and email
