Review: God's Big Plans for Me Storybook Bible by:Rick Warren

About the Book:

He wraps up the stories with a closing thought targeted to early readers. The colorful illustrations and narrative tone bring these beloved Bible stories to life for readers young and old.  God’s Big Plans for Me Storybook Bible has foil decoration on the cover.

My Review:
God has big plans for you and me. He uses us to draw more towards Him and to glorify Him even more. I love books that teach this to my kids because they need hope, y'all. Kids nowadays need the hope of Jesus. There is so much bad out there, way more than previous generations. books like these give our kids hope.

 Rick Warren is a pastor that has been around awhile. So it was easy for me to trust his writings and words. He is the author of the Purpose Driven Life and many others. He is starting to write more books geared towards our children--which is refreshing.

 The author takes several stories out of the Bible and uses them to speak to the hearts of our children. He goes along with each story and gives background information, scripture, and a short teaching lesson to help the child to further understand. The book has forty complete days worth of encouragement for children ages 4-8.
