This book is a short and lovely look at all the "good things" in the world of a child. Told in rhyming stanzas, this book is sure to make a wonderful bed time story (or just a quick read in the middle of the day for snuggle time). The illustrations are vivid, bright and engaging. The children depicted are from diverse ethnicities and the settings are all delightful and happy. The overall message is that God created a world full of goodness, with many things to delight yourself in. It's a charming and heartwarming read for children ages 3-8.
A well illustrated small book about the goodness of God perfect for reading with children. Also well suited for ESL readers. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Thomas Nelson: CHILDREN'S, Thomas Nelson via NetGalley. Thank you!
What a beautifully illustrated story! It shows a child so many ways to find God in everyday things. My three year old great grand daughter loved it. Thank you Thomas Nelson: CHILDREN'S via NetGalley for the complimentary copy. All opinions expressed are my own.
Such a cute and wise-worded little book. I shared this with my 4 and 6-year-old and they were in love with the illustrations. The 6-year-old remarked how sweet the rhyming was. I thought it was such a cute book, the prose is just perfect for little minds, completely understandable for any child, even the youngest. The artwork is stunning and I loved how it incorporated not only scenes but children and animals all over the world with such vibrant colors. The only thing questioned by my kids was on the ocean page- why is it nighttime and why are the pelicans flying at night? I highly recommend this book and will look forwards to adding it to my home library I received an advanced copy to borrow in exchange for a review
With easy to read rhymes and illustrations that are colorful and enticing for children, this book is a perfect gift for the little ones in your life. Touting God’s creation and His goodness on every page, this little reader encourages children to look around them at all that God has made and be thankful for everything. It even mentions the fact that God creates the child and made them for a special purpose. I loved the simplicity of the verses and the illustrations and plan to purchase my own copy for my grandchildren.

God I know You're good to me Morning, noon and night. You wrap me in Your tender care. I am precious in Your sight. And with good things surrounding me, Your perfect love is what I see. Starting early in your child's life in the goodness of God is a great gift of comfort and acceptance. It teaches thankfulness and worship. The vivid illustrations and the poetic words will be easy for a child to remember and reflect. Highly recommend. A special thank you to Thomas Nelson and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
Thanks for the advanced copy, my nephews will love this. Great introduction to the topic, lots of colour with beautiful illustrations.
Thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson Children's for a free digital copy. A very lovely book about how God is so so good. It covers a wide range of things we can thank him for. Plus it has beautiful and diverse illustrations.
The perfect book to read to toddlers or young preschoolers. It’s a very sweet story with wonderful illustrations.
This is a sweet little children's book about God's goodness. I love the lyrical prose and the beautiful lessons that it teaches. The illustrations are also vibrant and captivating.
This book is beyond adorable! I have God, I Know You're There and it's one of my favorite books to read to my toddler so I'm so excited to be adding this one to my collection! Beautiful illustrations with even more beautiful truths. Thank you Netgalley for this ARC! This book will be available on September 14th!
A perfect little book with pretty pictures and poems that reminds us of God's goodness everywhere and in everything.
A child’s library should always have at least one rhyme book because children love them and they’re so much fun to read aloud and even to memorise! “God, I know you’re good” would make a nice addition to any child’s library. It promotes feelings of gratitude and wonder at God’s common grace, love and generosity as we look at the world around us, I liked the colorful illustrations, full of happy excited little faces of all colors of skin. I would have liked this book even more if Christ and the gift of salvation had been mentioned. When we think about God being good, I think there’s no greater or better gift!
Reminiscent of the story Goodnight Moon, I found this book very similar but, in this place, instead of appreciating everything by saying Goodnight to it, our little character goes around the world acknowledging everything from plants to animals to everyday life and showing readers that without God, we wouldn't have had this beautiful world to see and enjoy. From the tiniest ant to the biggest elephant, to the food on our plate and our fingers and toes God made everything wonderful and stunning, especially us in his image. This book was the perfect read for children aged 3-8 years old especially in this current time when the world is looking pretty bleak with the governments, mandates, and the division of the world. We are fighting a battle and it is something that despite we try to shield and hide our children from the effects, sadly they do to feel it in their way and need these positive reinforcements and happiness stories to show them that no matter what, there is kindness and happiness even in the littlest and tiniest things. I also loved the illustrations in this story brought to us by Shane Crampton
