     Did you know that the Bible is God's 'love letter' to us? It's a FACT! And, "Love Letters from God" by Glenys Nellist elaborates on this topic by featuring a beautifully illustrated Bible storybook just for kids ages 4 to 8.  Love Letters from God  features nine Old Testament stories and nine New Testament stories from the Bible. Each  story ends with a special Bible verse promise and a unique lift-the-flap letter. Every envelope is addressed as,  "Your Love Letter from God" and is specially designed to correspond with each Bible story from the inside and out; including the postage stamp.  It begins with the heading and a blank space to personalize their own name. At the end of the book, your child is prompted with a special invitation to join, Jesus' team and a letter is provided for their personalized reply.

     I like that Love Letters from God offers children the opportunity to become more intimate with God in order to encourage a close relationship with him at such a early age in their lives. The personalization of each letter offers encouragement and makes the child feel special. What a wonderful memory keepsake for both parent and child!

     Also, I believe the age range should be more flexible with this particular storybook! My nine year old had no problem reading  it aloud to me. I believe she actually blushed when she was prompted to include her name in the first, Love Letter from God





Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist is available in hardcover, sold at retailers online and nationwide for $16.99.
