Why I Thank You, God
Michelle Medlock Adams
Children learn to love reading when they equate it with special time with their parents, with sharing and showing loving attention. Reading encourages language development and concept recognition. When parents read about God, very young children associate the love they receive from their parents with the love of God for His children through Christ Jesus. They learn to associate the words they hear with the presence of God in their lives.
Children at this age are in the here and now. They are fully aware of what is right in front of them and are only beginning to use their imaginations. In this book, text and illustration work together to show God in concrete terms.
Why I Thank You, God teaches about the gifts God gives us every day, and especially the gift of Jesus, who forgives our sin and reconciles us to God.
