"Just in Case You Ever Wonder" Review

Just in Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado is a children's book that was sent to me for review by Thomas Nelson Publishers.

About the Book:

A timeless children's classic by best-selling author, Max Lucado, that reinforces the love of a parent.

There are certain words that every child longs to hear . . . affirmation of unconditional love, promises of support, and words of encouragement. Just in Case You Ever Wonder wraps your children in its tender message of love, comfort, and protection, showing them that as they grow and change, you'll always be there for them—whether it's "monsters in the closet" or hard times when other kids are mean. Beloved author, Max Lucado, helps express unconditional love for a child—simply, powerfully, and forever.

My Take:

I was glad to be able to request another children's book to review, as we read with our daughter every day, and it is always nice to have new things to read! I was also looking forward to a children's book by Max Lucado. I have read his adult study books before, and I thought it would be neat to see what he had to say in a children's book.

We were not disappointed. This is a sweet affirmation from parent to child of ongoing love and care. It further points to how God's love for her is even more phenomenal. I loved how at the end of the book the author points to heaven and how wonderful it will be for us to be there together.

One caution I have is that there are mentions of protecting our children from 'monsters in the shadows,' and there is a slightly scary picture on that page. This would probably not be a big deal for kids age four and older, but our two year old got a little scared when we would come to that page. We try to avoid talking about monsters at all, since that just puts the idea in her head even more.

Overall, this is a lovely story that seems to truly come from the heart of the author.

I will give Just in Case You Ever Wonder ... 4 BookWorms.
