Good Good Father for Little Ones is a board book which is suggested for young readers. It introduces young children to who God is in a way which they can understand and relate to. The style of writing, which was chosen for this book, is a rhyming style. Rhymes are fun for children and help them to remember what they have heard or learned.
I really like how God is presented to children in Good Good Father for Little Ones. He appears to be presented as a loving, caring, and merciful Father. Whereas, some children may think of Him as overbearing, demanding, and very strict; someone which they may not be able to get closer to or share all of their thoughts and feelings with.
The illustrations are full of color and display warm and inviting characters throughout the book’s pages. I recommend Good Good Father for Little Ones to all parents and young readers.
