Having read Love Does and Everybody Always by Bob Goff, I was delighted to see he and his daughter had written Love Does For Kids. Bob Goff is a storyteller and kids will certainly enjoy the stories he tells in this book.
He has taken stories told in his previous books and now told them for children ages approximately 6-12 years old. They are stories which will draw them in and help them to realize faith is simply lived out in our everyday world, wherever life may find us.
A sampling of stories shared include:
- The starting of an annual New Year’s parade in which all the neighbors participated.
- The story of Charlie, a brave little boy in Uganda brought to the U.S. for medical attention.
- Shopping for birthday gifts for himself with his children.
- A softball game that went horribly wrong and beautifully right at the same time.
Each story points to a spiritual lesson to help children grow in love towards God, and people. Love Does for kids will encourage children to be other-minded, kind, and thoughtful to those around them.
The book is beautifully illustrated, the pictures are colorful and engaging, as they whimsically tell a story on their own. It will make a wonderful gift for any child.
This is a book children will be able to read on their own, but would be a wonderful book to be read together as a family. This book delivers the precious reminder –
God gave each of us unique talents and abilities of our own and
we all can make a difference in our world.
