Love Does for Kids
Faith in God can be exciting, daring, and fun. Love Does for Kids, the follow up to Bob Goff’s New York Times bestselling Love Does, shares some of the Goff family’s wild adventures—from holding a neighborhood parade to writing presidents from around the world. Children will laugh, dream, and be inspired to make a difference for God as they read these faith adventures from Bob and his daughter, Lindsey.
As a little boy with a big personality and even bigger dreams, Bob Goff had lots of questions, and they didn't go away when he grew up. It wasn’t until he learned just how big and wild and wonderful God is that he began to find answers. Once Bob learned about the deep goodness of God, he began to learn about the great power God gives His kids when they live a life full of love for others.
Kids everywhere will love Bob and Lindsey's stories about how love does. With childlike faith, enthusiasm, and great whimsy, young readers will feel instantly connected to a love that acts as much as it feels. Children will walk away with a sense of wonder at how great God is and will feel empowered to do things that will make a tangible difference in the world.
Bob and Lindsey invite kids to get to know God better and to see the world as a place designed to be changed as we put our faith in action. In the same way that Love Does has struck such a deep chord with adults, young readers will experience God in new and thrilling ways and see that living out our faith is certainly not boring!
My thoughts: Having just finished the adult version of this book, I was thrilled to see that there was a version for kids too! A lot of the same stories are in this book, but there are also some new ones. It's set up with illustrations, which makes it all the more fun and engaging for children and adults alike. I enjoy a lot of the thoughts Bob shares about living out love and expecting big things when we step out in faith. I needed a lot of those reminders, and I want my kids to see that love and be able to express it. This book is a great start for doing so!
I received this book from Book look bloggers. This is my honest review.
