My Great Big God is a nice Bible story board-book offering for young children. There are twenty stories total taken from both the Old and New Testament of the Bible. The stories are easy to grasp for young children as they are written simply. The rhyming format also makes the stories easier to read for the and for kids to remember and pay attention to.
Each story features a title, scripture reference ( you can read the entire story from the Bible if you want to), a simplified retelling, and an important attribute of God to remember. A few examples of the attributes pointed out are “My Great Big God has a plan for me”, saves the day, gave us Jesus, makes big things happen, and so forth.
A few of the stories found in the book include Creation, Noah and the Ark, Moses, Joseph, The Wall of Jericho, Samson, Daniel, and much more. Story retellings are only 2-3 paragraphs long and are covered on a two-page spread surrounded by the story illustration. Stories text only takes up one page.
The illustrations are totally kid-friendly. The warm coloring palette is perfect for a children’s book. There are no scary or potentially frightening images. However, there is one illustration where people are crying as Jesus carries his cross but it’s done subtlety and there’s a man hurt on the road being helped by the Good Samaritan (he’s being wrapped up in bandages). There’s nothing gory, no blood, etc.
I think this is a sweet offering. My youngest child enjoyed looking at the pictures and my six-year-old son had no trouble reading this book to me aloud. This book would be a lovely offering to a home book collection or for a Sunday School class.
