WaterBrook Press (August 19, 2008)
This book is written in a wonderful, lilting, rhyming style that allows the words to just roll off your tongue as you read it aloud to your children. The illustrations are wonderful and realistic with lots of colors moving the story right along. The topic of this one is fantastic as it led to my children going into even more ways that God loves them and it was reassuring to them - very precious!
