I am an absolutely avid lover of children's books. From as early as I can remember, I loved nothing more than snuggling into the crook of my mama's arm and resting my head against her chest as she turned the pages of our beloved books. Night after night we read together as a family, sometimes for an hour or more. Some of the first truths of life I know I learned from those books, lessons on love and hope and kindness.
Max Lucado's Just in Case You Ever Wonder is a sweet story of family love and sends a message to young readers about their incredible value as children of God. The artistry is beautiful and the truth simple, clear and poignant. This is the kind of book that would make a perfect bedtime story; the tone is so soothing and I love the idea of my little one falling asleep with a message of how precious she is.
I opted for a digital version of this sweet story, but I think it would be much better in print. Kids need to hold books in their little hands and turn the pages over and over again. I found the digital version to be a little confusing because you couldn't really see the pictures and words on a "page" at the same time. However, we were reading the book on my husband's Iphone. If you had an Ipad, you wouldn't have that problem at all.
I'm giving the book a 4/5 stars, but really only because I don't recommend the digital version of this story. Get the real book! The story is so sweet and would make a wonderful addition to any child's library.
