Love Letters from God Bible Stories for a Girl's Heart by Glenys Nellist is a delightful picture/story book for girls on the women of the Bible. This book has wonderful pictures accompanying each story. The book begins of course at the beginning with the story of Eve. Each story is contained in 2 pages and includes a letter from God which can be personalized by the giver of the book to contain the girl's name in the letter. There are many good children's Bible stories on the market today but this is the first that I have seen that tells of the women of the Bible's stories. This book contains not only the well known women of the Bible such as Eve and Mary the mother of Jesus but also the females who are seldom mentioned such as Naaman's servant girl. It also brings out how each might have been feeling as they were going through their life following the path that God had lain out for them.
I loved the Love Letters from God specially made for girls. As a woman who raised all girls I never knew how to answer the many questions about why no one talks very much about the women in the Bible. This Book would have been such a delight to provide for my children as they were growing up and I am so glad that this author has provided this book for the females growing up in our world today. I would recommend this for any young reader but also for children to be read to. This would make a wonderful bedtime storybook. This book would make a delightful gift for any little girl.
I received this book from Handlebar Publishing for this review.
