I did enjoy the way the Creative Story was told and think kids will find it interesting. However, the beginning of the book Lucy has some questions because of issues she's having at school, yet Granpa Joe picks up what looks to Lucy as a giant book and starts reading from the beginning to explain how much God loves us. I don't find these things to all be a coherent story but just situations and facts thrown together in a picture book. Don't get me wrong,it is a cute pictictue book story that young kids will find enlightening and a fun way to hear the Creation story,but as an adult the story itself is just three issues and themes thrown together to make a book: Lucy having mean things said to her at school and leading her to have many questions about God,Grandpa Joe's reading of the Creation story in a very kid friendly and illuminated way,and the fact that God really loves us.

Are you looking for God honoring books that will captivate your child’s imagination, teach them faith-building biblical concepts, and help them grow in their reading skills?
Then I have the perfect book for your young reader…Guess How Much God Loves You
This beautifully illustrated book introduces young readers to the Creation Account, through the eyes of seven year old Lucy Lu, a creatively curious first grader who is starting to have serious questions about God.
How old is He? Does He sleep? What does He do all day? And the biggest one of all – does God really love me?
After one very hard day, feeling like she doesn’t matter, Lucy sits with her Papa Joe who has promised to answer these questions and more, launching them onto an exciting journey through the Bible to discover God’s never changing, never failing, never ending love.
I wrote this book because I want every child to know their life matters. To know that the God of all things created them in His image, on purpose and for a good purpose.
Guess How Much God Loves You will have seven books in the series with each one covering an important Bible account critical to building an understanding of God’s character and His love for all people, including your reader!
This first book is about the Creation Account as recorded in the Bible. Future books will cover the Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, the Exodus and more.
I want children to understand these are not just stories about fictional characters, but historical accounts about real people they can relate to. People who experienced God’s power, love, and faithfulness.
My greatest desire is to see this next generation trust the Bible and enjoy reading it. More than ever, young readers need to hear the message that they are valuable, loved unconditionally by the One who created them and gave them the best gift of all, His Son Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
