I have been a fan of Max Lucado for years. His books have resided on my shelf for a long time and I often recommend his works to others. I didn’t realize he did children’s related media till just a few years ago when we were introduced to a caterpillar named Hermie. The kids just loved Hermie and Friends. I was really excited when I received an email about this best selling book from Max Lucado called Just in Case You Ever Wonder. I was really looking forward to reviewing it. This book has been re done for 2019 in a way that really brings new life to the whole book!
Just in Case You Ever Wonder is a book all Christian parents need for their book shelves. I need a few to pass around at church right now because we are having a baby boom going on and this book would make an excellent baby gift. It is a book that grows with the child and will become a favorite easily. The reason for that is it that it spells out the love a parent has for their child and the love GOD has for his children. It also tells the child just how special they are because the same one who made the world made them and their is no one else like them.
The book takes the child on a journey from the moment GOD gives them to their parents to tell them that they are always loved. They don’t even need to wonder because their parent will always love them. It is told with the beautifully illustrated images of a bear and their cub. It could be a momma bear or a daddy bear. It doesn’t really say in the book if it is either. The story starts with the caregiver telling the child how special they are and wonderfully they were created. Kids love to hear just how special and wonderful they are, especially from their parents. It is a great snuggle book.
The book teaches children that even when they are sad or in the darkest times their parents and GOD still love them and will always be there for them even in Heaven.
That is such an important lesson for little ones.
My favorite part of the book, other than the beautiful writing, is the amazing art work. It is so well done. The artist is Eve Tharlet and she did a wonderful job. I would hang any of these pages on my wall as art. They are simply lovely.
