Book Review: I Am Truly Loved by Cheryl Lashmit

I received a free copy of I Am Truly Loved from the author for this review.

I am usually apprehensive about Christian children's books, but when Ms. Lashmit sent me this book and I read it, I couldn't help but smile.  While often in Christianity, books focus on how much God loves the individual, in this book, Ms. Lashmit goes beyond that to show that God loves all of His creation, and shows how different parts of creation interact with each other.  The repetitive use of "I know I am loved, this  you can truly see" is a great way to reinforce to the children hearing the book how much God loves them and everyone and everything else too.  It is a great reminder of the broader reach of John 3:16, not just that God loves me, but "for God so loved the world."

This book would be a great gift for any child.
