God Loves Daddy and Me by Bonnie RIckner Jensen

I love that the author made a special "DADDY" book!  It's so important and special to recognize a Daddy's role in a young child's life.  And what could be better than to show this as a direct gift from God.  God loves the little child by giving that child a loving Daddy to play with, go on adventures with, pray with and learn about great truths of life such as forgiveness.  The tender words combined with the adorable illustrations make this book fantastic!

I received this book from the publishers and was not required to write a positive review.

God loves Mommy and Me by Bonnie Rickner Jensen

This board book is just right for toddlers.  Easy to hold with beautifully illustrated drawings that capture the love and coziness of mother/child bonding.  The love of the mother for the child is expressed in the mother's varied ways to demonstrate that her child is precious to her.  From spending time together to kissing "boo boos" the mother rabbit is involved in her child's life.  I really enjoyed how the author used words like proud and forgive to demonstrate parental love.  It was great how the author sequed into God's love for us by telling how God is the One who gave mother rabbit her love for baby bunny.  The author concludes the book with ways God shows his love to each of us and we show our love by prayers of thanksgiving.
