Children's Book Extravaganza Tour!!

Greetings! I'm privileged to be a part of Waterbrook Press and their Children's Book Extravaganza giveaway and blog tour.

We're all featuring three of the most adorable children's books I've read, and offering you the chance to win a set of each:-)







In Lisa Tawn Bergren's "God Gave Us Heaven", Little Cub asks multiple questions of Papa Cub about Heaven. What will it be like? Will we be angels? How do we get there?

Lisa gives Biblical answers that a child of any age can understand, and combines them with the adorable illustrations of Laura J. Bryant. A perfect book for your family or your children's ministry, I highly recommend "God Gave Us Heaven", and give it four out of five bookmarks with a pillow as a charm.




In Dandi Daley Mackall's book "God Loves Me More Than That", Romans 8:38-39 comes to life in colorful illustrations and clever rhymes. Again written from a child's point of view, this easy to understand book shares just how wide, deep, everlasting and fulfilling God's love for us is.

Dandi's rhythmic word choices combine with David Holm's vivid illustrations to create a book that is to be treasured by families and children's ministries in every stage of life and growth. I'm giving it the full five out of five bookmarks, with a dandelion as a charm.




Last, but certainly not least, Dandi has also written a book that brings to life Psalm 139:13-16. Again with very clever rhymes and a mischievous little girl, Dandi shows children just how lovingly God molded and shaped them, from toes to nose.

David Holm's illustrations capture the heart of the child in this book...she's a sprite who's always up to something. Of all the books, I think this one captured my heart! I'm giving "When God Created My Toes" five out of five bookmarks, with a cup of coffee as a charm!

Now, want to win a complete set of three books? I have two up for grabs, and I'm picking winners on September 1st...just in time for school! Leave me a comment with the ages of your children and you'll be entered to win.

Don't have any left in the nest? Are your children teens? Enter anyway! These are a great addition to your children's ministry at your church! I'm donating my own personal copies to ours...you can do the same!

Winners will be drawn on September 1st:-)

Happy Reading!

My girls are older; however, they babysit and these sound like good books for them to read to kids that they babysit. Also for future Grandkids. :P Church nursery or library would be good place to put them too. I'd love to win a set.

I agree with you. They are wonderful for the Church's Children's Library!
Even our Sunday School has its' own library. I also have a nephew that could enjoy the darling books first!
Please enter me in your marvelous book drawing. Many thanks, Cindi
