With Love, From Me to You By Dr. Mary Manz Simon is an endearing tale for children that helps them to understand what love is and what it can look like. It’s the perfect book to pick up for both boys and girls ages 2- 6 years old during not just the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday season but year round.
In this book, we are introduced to a postman bear that travels here and there on a train. On, this train, we meet several different characters both young and old as the story unfolds. The postman sends good cheer by waving to someone that is alone, stopping to share kindness with someone that is sad, reminding someone who is angry that God loves them, and so forth.

My children have asked what God thinks about them. In answering this question, I tell them that God speaks to us through his Word the Bible and if we take time to look around we can see His love continually surrounding us. To give my kids more of a visual and tangible example of this, I’ve turned to author P.K, Hallinan and illustrator Laura Watson’s latest book A Love Letter From God.
My son and daughter adore this book. They were drawn in right away by the colorful illustrations and the unique cutout designs of stars, flowers, circles, and hearts on each and every page. The nature scenes are comforting and beautifully done. There are boys and girls off all colors and race! There are also many insects and animals! My kids had fun pointing out something on every page. I can tell that careful thought went into creating this children’s book, even certain words of the text is highlighted!
The writing is lyrical and in rhyme making it flow well as it is being read. I think this book is wonderful. It’s a good bedtime read or for when your kids may be having a hard day. This book to us is beautiful, encouraging, and comforting. I certainly recommend it and think it would make a great gift with Valentine’s Day coming up.
