I thought this book was very sweet and with a great meaning. The illustrations were beautiful as well. I like how the book finished with a verse from Romans that ties everything together. I love to include children’s books in gifts for baby showers and this would definitely be a great one to choose.

This is SO sweet! I love it. I love the rhythm of the prose, I love the farmyard pictures. This is so lovely and I would have enjoyed reading this to my kids when they were little. This book encouraged me to explore what else the author has.

I loved the images in this book, they were stunning!

My daughter is 5 and attends our local Catholic Primary school and is really enjoying learning the RE side and this was a book she really enjoyed.

It is 5 stars from me for this one, perfect for children right from a very young age.
I thought it was a fab little book! Very highly recommended!

Nothing at all can ever separate us from God's love. Romans 8:39

Such an endearing board book on the love of God. That is the good news and we can see it in the goodness of God. Your children will love the farm animals with the vivid illustrations and the simple message of God's love. It soothing to the soul to both parents and child.

A special thank you to Our Daily Bread Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

An absolutely delightful little book with vivid colored illustrations that are quirky, making you smile when you first open the book. You would enjoy reading this book to your kids at bedtimes, quiet times, or anytime for a matter of fact. It is an educative and fun book.

Just as with the other book I just reviewed, I'm mostly here for the illustrations. The positivity in the affirmations is good to enforce.

This book is full of beautiful illustrations and a wonderful story of how deep God's love is. This book is sure to please any child. My great granddaughters, ages 2 and 5, both loved it.

This book has attractive illustrations as well as a nice storyline and should be delightful to share with the intended audience. The only thing I would have liked to see was a shift from the animal illustrations to some human illustrations. This would send the message that just as the animals love their offspring, so do humans. While the reader could say that to the child, having that illustration already there would help make the connection. Apart from that, it would make a nice purchase for personal use or as a gift.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the publisher and Net Galley but the thoughts expressed are my own.

Good News! God Loves You! by Glenys Nellist - Our Daily Bread for Kids Presents Board book
What darling illustrations! This is the cutest children book I’ve seen in a while. Vivid pics of barnyard animals teach the truth about God's great love. My favorite is the momma cat covering up her kittens in a haystack.

Children learn about God’s love through the rhymes like this:
God's love is wrapped around you.
You're held in God's great care.
And even though it can't be seen,
God's love is everywhere.

Sturdy board book will last for years and through several children. What a great way to show God’s love to young children. This would be a great gift for any child!

I would like to thank NetGalley and Our Daily Bread Publishing for a free eARC of this book.

This book is positively sweet. The author's rhymes and rhythms make it easy to read this book aloud in a lovely song-like flow. The message is clear and comes across with such gentle joy.

The illustrations are adorable, and each page is packed with details you can point out and discuss with your little one time and time again. This book would make a wonderful baby shower gift or present for a toddler.

This is my second Good News! book and definitely another I would recommend. The illustrations are beautiful. The bright colors and barn animals kept my child’s attention. The story itself repeated over and over how much God loves us, using nature language (higher than the trees, etc) much like the Bible does and had cute rhymes. Like all books in this series, the last page of the book had the scripture that it was based on which I really appreciate. I will take all the Biblical truth I can to speak into my son’s life.
I will say, “Good News! It’s Creation” is still by far my favorite of these series, so if I had to recommend just 1, it would be that one. But this one was still beautiful and worth having in your kiddo’s library.
*Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an Advance Readers Copy in exchange for my honest review.

This is a charming foundation for teaching children about God's love. The illustrations are beautiful. The writing is warm and poetic, exploring the depths and security of being fully loved by God: a perfect place to start teaching children the Gospel. This is where Genesis starts: Creator God wants fellowship with His people. He loves us. Be sure of that before anything else. I definitely want to check out more books in this series and consider them next time I'm looking for a baby shower book.

It's a message of the unconditional and affirming love of God. This sturdy board book celebrates that God is love and God loves YOU!

"Good News! God Loves You!" is perfect for gift-giving.

This Book Will Be a Favorite!

The words will fill their hearts and the illustrations will capture their eyes.

Bedtime at our house was usually when my kids pulled out their favorite books. This would have been one of them. Partly because it is short but meaningful and also visually it would allow them to explore the pages. Perfect for gift giving!

I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley on behalf of the Publisher and was under no obligation to post a favorable review.

This book was a joy to read! The rhythm and rhymes made it catchy, the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and of course the message is without a doubt the best part of the book.
I could see this becoming a regular read in our household.

Perfect for a baby shower, baptism, Christmas, or just because gift.

What a neat book! Brightly colored pages filled with fun, adorable animals. Great lessons teaching kids how "Perfectly Precious" they are in God's sight. My kids & I really enjoyed reading this book & look forward to reading many more by this author! We can't wait until it comes out so we can buy a copy to give at a Baby Shower! I just requested other books by the author from my library to read to my kids.

This book was cute. Perfect for teaching toddlers about the love of Christ. It would make the best baby shower or 1st birthday book for any believer's little image bearer.

What a SWEET children’s book! Our kids enjoyed listening to this book being read to them. If you are looking for a children book for a preschool or nursery class this is a solid choice. Good illustrations that help keep attention, and the words of the story are easy to follow. It is short and sweet for those bedtime moments when you want to read a story, but not be reading two hours later to finish the story.

What a beautiful book! Every word was so true and so important for our little ones to hear. God really does love us and there's nothing we can do to change that! The artwork is gorgeous and engaging - very colorful, so I think kids will like this. Definitely on the list of books to get my niece!
