This is one resource that I could not wait to share with you. The title alone was enough to capture my attention.
About the book:
“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.
What I Liked:
This storybook is unlike any other I’ve ever read – and I have read quite a few. Each beautifully illustrated story begins by using very kid-friendly language to explain Bible truths. Each story ends with a related Bible verse (from the very kid-friendly New International Reader’s Version) that is a promise from God and a love letter from God to the child. I love that the love letter begins with Dear ________ to personalize to the child reading it.
Even the title of the Bible stories were unique, such as “Noah Needs His Nails (Noah’s Ark) and “The Lions Who Lost Their Lunch (Daniel in the Lions’ Den). And as crazy as it seems, I love the book’s size. It’s perfect for an older child to read on their own as well as the perfect size for a parent to read to their child – the child would have no problem seeing the pictures or opening the love letter flap.
What I Think Was Missing:
In my opinion, nothing was missing.
