"God Loves Me More Than That" by Dandi Daley Mackall is a cute children's book about the vastness of God's love.
Michael Duncan
This book was illustrated by David Hohn and the pictures are very "real Like" verses being cartoonish.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter already has much of this title memorized due to rolling cadences that beg to be read aloud and recited.

How much love does God have for me?
More than the letters between A and Z
More than the bumbles in a bumble bee.
God loves me more than that!

Those are the words that I overheard my eldest `reading' to my 2 year old in the bed tonight.

The quotation above is the first stanza which provides a repeating form for each following section of verse. Each quatrain ends with the line "God loves me - than that!" Fill in the blank with more than, deeper than, softer than, louder than, bigger than and others! God's love for us is immense, far larger than we can conceptualize.

This title reminds me of a bed-time game I play with my girls, familiar to many parents. I call it "I love you more than." We take turns saying how much we love each other; "I love you higher than the tallest tree." I say. "Well, I love you to the moon and back." My daughter replies. Going on for quite some time, the conversation ends with my concluding remark, "But you know who loves you more than even I do?" "Yes, God!" my daughter answers joyfully, she knows the drill. Drawing from this same vein and tradition God Loves Me More Than That makes a perfect addition to family bedtime rituals.

Hohn's illustration takes Mackall's not entirely uncommon imaginings of God's love: deeper than a treasure chest beneath the sea, higher than a space shuttle flying by, etc., and takes them in to the realm of the fantastic. Hohn places the little boy who is reflecting on God's love for him amongst hippo's dancing in the rain, on a bumble bee's back and as a cowboy on horseback on the range to mention only a few. We are clearly immersed in the realm of the imagination, and are treated to a fantastic voyage through this little boy's daydreams.

The cover and idea sold me, however the imagery seemed a bit dark to me and the rhymes did not make sense, Gods love is heavier than an elephant or cheers louder than a football crowd.... God's love is louder than a dark thunderstorm cloud... ??? sad disappointment for me.
The artistry itself was very well done, but like I said dark.

Format: Hardcover
This an adorable, rhyming children's book about how God's love is higher, deeper, wider, bigger, louder, and softer than even the highest, deepest, widest, biggest, loudest, and softest things possible on earth. When I was reading this book it brought to my mind the verse "And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:17-19)." This book has wonderful illustrations and captures even my one year old daughter's attention. This is definitely a book that will be a family favorite for years to come. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review through Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers.

Format: Hardcover
There are lots of children's books available discussing God's love, but Dandi Daley Mackall's God Loves Me More Than That goes beyond the usual by exploring the idea of how much God loves each of us.

Always using kid-friendly language and examples, Mackall begins her rhyming book by saying God loves "me" more than the distance between letters A and Z. David Hohn's illustrations add depth and whimsy to this by showing giant letters stretched across the hillside, with a little boy standing on the letter A, trying to see all the way to Z.

The author also tells us God loves "me" more than the bumbles in a bumble bee, that his love is higher than the moon or the space shuttle, deeper than a treasure chest in the ocean, wider than a semi truck or the prairies where cowboys ride, louder than a cheering football crowd, softer than a cat's sneeze or a summer's breeze, and more. The book ends:

"Lord, it's great to be loved by you.
Hope you know that I love you, too.
Nice to know that my whole life through.
God loves me more than that!"

What I Like: I am not always a fan of Dandi Daley Mackall's books, but this book shows her at her best. The text flows easily and describes God's love in a fun and meaningful way. David Hohn's illustrations are superb; they add a lot of imagination to the book and make it all that much more interesting to read. For example, when God's love is said to have more bumbles than a bumble bee, Hohn shows a boy riding on the back of a giant bee. Later, when God's love is said to be deeper than a treasure chest in the sea, he shows the boy in an antique diving suit (a la Jules Vern), finding an old ship with treasure. He really ignites the imagination of children.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

I have taught kindergarten through second grade for 22 years. Dandi Daley Mackall is one of my favorite authors of Christian children's literature. She understands that good literature for children promotes phonemic awareness and thinking skills. I love the way her books have a very skilled rhythm and rhyme with questions for discussion and opportunites for follow up between parent and child. This is my favorite title, and I give it out with baby gifts continually. It is an absolutely wonderful way to instill the concept of Romans 8:37-39 into the heart and mind of a child. I realize that not all will agree with Dandi's theology. As one who has a love relationship with Jesus Christ and who has worked for years with young children, I highly recommend Dandi's writing!
