This book arrived today and I could not wait to read it. The very thought of God writing a letter to a child was a concept that I wish I had thought of myself. I enjoyed the Bible stories, some of them more than others, but I loved each and every letter that was attached to the pages. They were insightful and will touch a child's heart at their level. I was also in awe of the invitation in the back and the blank letter for the child to write a letter to God. A wonderful story, the illustrations are great, colorful but not overwhelming the message of the book. 5 stars from this reviewer.

About the Book:
What child does not love to receive mail? What if that child could receive, open and read his or her own personal mail from God? The Love Letters from Godwill invite them to do just that! Accompanying each story in this unique children’s Bible is a very special and encouraging letter, each tucked away in its own lift-the-flap envelope, just for them. Written for children ages four to eight, the Love Letters from Godincludes eighteen of the most popular Bible stories—nine from the Old Testament and nine from the New Testament. Following each story the child will find his or her own letter from God. Children will love the excitement of opening the letters and parents will love how each letter elaborates on the Bible story being told. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Wonderful Words To You will accompany each story and letter. Much more than a mere memory verse, each carefully chosen promise will be God’s very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope. This book will culminate in an invitation for the children to write their own RSVP to God.
