Book Review Time: Kid's Book

I am tardy in posting this review. I read it about a month ago, just haven't taken the time to get on the computer and write about it....sorry about that!

I picked this book to review because I already had another book from this series (God Gave Us You). The books are definitely one style, and if you like one, you'll love this collection "God Gave Us So Much." (It's 3 books in one.)

However, I don't think these books are my favorite style.

The content of the 3 books is great, and is written to answer some big questions for little kids, like What is Heaven? and What is Love? I find the theology fine, but it's a bit wordy. (How do you cover those questions without being wordy I don't know!)

Even though they seem to be little kid books, I'd say they're more readable and appropriate for the 8-10 age range. This is mostly because any kid younger than that will not want to sit through all the reading. The pictures aren't interesting enough to keep a small child's attention long enough to read one page. The pictures are nice, I'm just saying for the amount of words on one page, it doesn't seem to keep the attention of the kid yet, and they want to turn the page sooner than I'm done reading.

So, if you like the, what I call, "lovey-dovey" style of art and pictures, you'll like these books. I'm not partial, so I think I'll skip out on any more books by this author and artist.

If you like it, I'm sure you can find it at the library, or on Amazon or CBD. (Or you can ask me for my copy)
