God’s Great Love For You- Book Review

god love

I teach at a Christian preschool and I am always looking for new and interesting books to use with my students.  I was given the opportunity to review the book God’s Great Love For You.  The illustrations are very bright and well done.  The colors are bright and the pictures are big.  There are not a lot of illustrations on each page which helps the little ones to keep focus on  what is being read to them.  I read it to my students and they really enjoyed it.  We have read it so much that they are starting to know the words and what comes next.  I love that they liked the book so much that they are telling me when I miss a word in the story.

I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone with children that you are trying to teach how much God loves them.

shark 10Shark in the Dark

The shark has been lurking in the deep, dark sea, searching for a fishy snack. He’s big and he’s mean and he’s always hungry. Tired of fleeing the shark, the other seas creatures come up with a plan. If they all work together it might be possible to teach the shark a lesson he’ll never forget. With a lively rhyming text; bright, expressive illustrations; and a playful die-cut cover, this is one shark’s tale that will be a hit either at story hour . . . or feeing time.

shark 8Sharks our amazing world series tells all about the sharks.  It has some amazing pictures that show the sharks in the ocean.


shark6Cedric the Shark Becomes A Big Brother is a one of a very cute series.  In this book Cedric is told he is going to be a big brother.  Is this good news or bad news?  Lets read the book and find out.  This book is good for the shark week but also if you have a child that is going to have a new sibling.


shark 4Sharks

He’s quick. He’s silent. He has five rows of deadly teeth. Chomp! Meet the shark—the fish who ruled the deep before dinosaurs roamed the Earth! This fish has soft cartilage so he can glide, twist, and turn before his prey can say “gulp!” He can smell a single drop of blood in 25 million drops of ocean. He can feel electricity given off by his prey. He will lose and replace more than 10,000 teeth in his lifetime. Cool photos bring kids into the shark’s world. Fun facts go deep into the shark’s scary science.


shark 11Shark Mad Stanley

Stanley, who loves sharks and knows all about them, fantasizes about having one for a pet and considers all the things he would need to feed and take care of it. This would be a great book to lead into what they would do if they met a shark.  I love the answers that you receive.  One child said they would let it sleep with them and teach them to play soccer.

shark2Sharks of the World is  a cloring book that has some great pictures of the sharks that you can place in the art center to have them either color or water color.



I am a Shark This book is a cute book about a shark that is afraid of something.  The kids get to guess what the shark could be afraid of..  Also leads to a discussion of things they are afriad of.


I hope you find one book or several that you would like to read to your child or students.  I love reading books to my class I hope you enjoy these books as well.
