I have three great new children's books to give away!

Today I have the privilege of reviewing 3 new beautiful children's books written for 4 to 8 year olds. These would be an excellent addition to any family library. The stories and rhymes are clever and memorable and the illustrations are truly works of art. These would be wonderful gifts for kids, grandkids, baby showers or for any little tikes in your world.

Add your comment to this post by noon on Thursday to be in the drawing to win these books!

"God Gave Us Heaven" by Lisa Tawn Bergren, illustrated by Laura J. Bryant is a story of a young polar bear cub asking questions about heaven. A nice story, with lovely illustrations, a bit of imagination and a hint of the gospel sprinkled in.

What was it like "When God Created My Toes"? Author, Dandi Daley Mackall, wrote a lyrical rhyme of a young girl asking about God's thoughts about her as she was created. The question encourages loving affirmation from the reader to the child about God's loving hand in how uniquely they were designed. The book is exquisitely illustrated by David Hohn. Check out more of his amazing art on his website here.

Also illustrated by David Hohn and written by Dandi Daley Mackall, my favorite of the three is "God Loves Me More Than That". With child-like examples, this lively rhyme sets a strong foundation for the little ones in your life about how immense, high, deep, and wide God's love is for his children.

Much of the fun of reading books with children is the adventure of helping them search for all the little details in the illustrations. All three of these books have gorgeous detail and beauty, unique perspective and wonderful full color illustrations. I'm sure that they'll become family favorites that you'll pass down thru the generations.

If you don't win the drawing and want to buy the books, just click on the titles above to order.

Spread the word about the give-away and be sure to comment on this post before the drawing on Thursday evening, for a chance to win .

Hi Nancy, are you giving them away as a set? If I can only get one I would like 'When God made my toes".
Thanks for the opportunity to win.

I just love children's literature and these sound exciting. Being a retired kindergarten teacher, I know the importance of reading aloud to children and your encouragement to do so is a blessing indeed! I could really use any of these for my children's sermons at church. (Even if I don't win... thanks for the book reviews!)
