What child does not love to receive mail? What if that child could receive, open and read his or her own personal mail from God? The Love Letters from God will invite them to do just that! Accompanying each story in this unique children’s Bible is a very special and encouraging letter, each tucked away in its own lift-the-flap envelope, just for them. Written for children ages four to eight, the Love Letters from God includes eighteen of the most popular Bible stories—nine from the Old Testament and nine from the New Testament. Following each story the child will find his or her own letter from God. Children will love the excitement of opening the letters and parents will love how each letter elaborates on the Bible story being told. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Wonderful Words To You will accompany each story and letter. Much more than a mere memory verse, each carefully chosen promise will be God’s very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope. This book will culminate in an invitation for the children to write their own RSVP to God.

In a world of so many children’s Bible storybooks, it is hard to choose just the right one for your special child. If you can only buy one, I recommend Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp. Written for children ages 4-9, this book has it all — beautiful and detailed illustrations, well-written retellings of Bible stories in both prose and verse, a Bible verse to reinforce the story, and best of all, a personalized message showing your child how he or she can be part of God’s story. There are 18 stories, 9 each from the Old and New Testaments, all favorites, but not all always included in Bible storybooks. I especially liked the inclusion of the call to Samuel and the parable of the Lost Sheep. At the end, there is an invitation to join Jesus’ team and a blank card for your child to write their own love letter to God. Love Letters from God is a great way to explain God to your child and lead him to a deeper understanding and relationship with Him. A perfect addition to your family’s library, I highly recommend this book.

Highly Recommended.

Audience: children ages 4-9.

Do y’all remember The Jolly Postman? It goes down as one of the best children’s books ever. I still have my copy (it was the Christmas version). It was full of different kind of letters you can pull out from the pages. Full of colorful characters and postman adventures, this was a hit in all my classes.

After seeing Love Letters from God pop up on my radar, I had to pick it up, only if to fulfill my nostalgic whim. Written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp, this book is perfect for young readers!

Covering keys stories in the Bible, this colorful and fun read will share stories in a new way for your young ones. From creation, to Adam and Eve, to King David, to the calling of the disciples, to key parables, to stories from Jesus’ time on earth, and of course the Resurrection, I know children will love reading through the stories, learning scripture verses and reading the letters.

Each letter from God takes lessons from the biblical story and what God’s heart is. Like this one from the story of David and Goliath:

I have something very special to tell you: No giant is bigger than me! No giant is stronger than me!

So do not be afraid of giant things in your life that might frighten you. Never forgot I am bigger and stronger than anything you might be scared of. So try to be like David-do not be afraid. Remember, I am always with you.

Your Big Strong Friend,
God

Plus there’s even an invitation and spot for children to write their own letter to God!

I love all of the creative and fun bible stories for young ones these days! How about you? Did you have a favorite story as a child from the bible? Or are there current ones you love sharing with kiddies?

I just love the whole idea behind Love Letters from God Bible Stories! After all, doesn't everyone love getting letters? Getting a letter in the mail is such a rarity I think that kids will grow up missing out on this treasure. Why mail a card or letter when there is email and e-cards? There is just something precious about holding a letter in your hand and I want my kids to know this simple pleasure.

This book of Bible Stories each contains a letter from God. One of my kids favorite Bible stories is David and Goliath. I like that the Bible reference is at the start of each story so you can also look it up with your kids if you want to. Then the story is told. At the end of the story is "Your Love Letter from God."

It looks like a real letter with postage and all and is raised off the page so that you can actually open it.


How adorable is that? I love that it takes the main point from the story, puts it in God's perspective as a man and a father and then tells it to your child. I also love that you can put your child's name on it! I chose not to only because I have two so close in age that I didn't want to pick one! I might just put both their names in but I also want to save it for Jax. You know how it is with three kids; everything needs to be equal and even! Maybe I'll just make it say "Dear Silvestrini's."

I really like that each story is just on one or two pages and the letter and another Bible story are on the second page. It keeps everything concise and to the point which is perfect for my five and six year olds. Honestly, since they know the letter is coming they just can't wait to get to it so they sometimes rush me through the story. I have to remind them to pay attention so that is the only downside. They love the letter so much they almost want to skip the story and get right to it!

The illustrations are very simple and straightforward and I like that because it leaves the focus on the letter where it should be.Love Letters from God is such a beautiful, original way to tell Bible stories. I love that you get it from the Bible, written in words kids understand with a magical, personal letter to tie it all together.
