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.
Warm illustrations by Toni Goffe who is painting full time and how I would love to hear him play his double bass in a local jazz band in Hampshire, England.
In a world where everything is constantly changing, this powerful message of unconditional love is very much needed for young hearts everywhere. Max leaves a tender legacy to his children and shows us the way to comfort our offspring, so tenderly with assuring words, that they are loved no matter what and no matter when.
The book begins by saying that a loving Creator made you! You are so special and you are surrounded with love by your parents in a loving home. Through fears, hard times and disappointments, you'll continue to see that love is still available to you. You'll grow to understand your creator through the beauty of this earth and then when another big change of separation comes, you'll be reassured of a loving reunion one day.
You see, this is what I've told my three grown children, that I will always love them and now I play with my five grandchildren and whisper to them daily what I believe to be true... YaYa will always love you... just in case you ever wondered.
Thank you, Max Lucado, for saying so well, what we all feel in our hearts to share with our own children everywhere. *****
"In just under two decades of writing, Max Lucado has accomplished more than most writers hope for in a lifetime. Most of his books have appeared on one or more bestseller lists, including those published by the "New York Times," "USA Today," "Publishers Weekly," and the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA). Aside from hardcover books, Lucado's writings have also been published as children's books, videos, CD-ROMs, DVDs, music CDs, mass paperback booklets, apparel, giftware, bookmarks, calendars, study Bibles, workbooks, curricula, and plush products. In spring 2003, Hallmark/Dayspring Cards launched a new gift card line featuring excerpts from Lucado's writings--and has already sold more than one million cards.
All this success has drawn more than a little attention to a previously low-profile Texas author and minister..."
Thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishers for providing this lovely picture book for review. I was not compensated in any way for my opinion. I sure love this one, warm addition to my library. Do you have a favorite Max Lucado book?
