What would God tell you if He wrote you a love letter? Would He speak of games, or bright sunny days? I bet God would tell you of his undying love. In this fabulous new book, best-selling author P.K. Hallinan imagines what God would tell a child in a love letter.

I love you, My Child!
What more can I say?
To Me, you are Perfect in every way!


So begins this wonderful children’s book. Told in simple rhyme, the ‘letter’ tells of God’s undying, unconditional love. With songbirds, flowers, and rainbows, through a picnic at the beach and an evening watching the stars through a telescope, God assures the reader that his love is everywhere. He tells how He will send the sunrise to brighten the morning hours and will hold the stars up in the sky to show the might of His love. While struggles may come, God assures the reader that He will always be there to make YOU strong!

Perfectly told, and beautifully illustrated, A Love Letter from God is a treasure. Young readers will easily understand the text and the message of God’s undying love comes through loud and clear. The pages are of a nice thick stock which will make it hard for little hands to bend on the first reading. An added bonus is that each page has ‘die-cut’ shapes that give a peek of what is on the next page.

Quill says: Another fantastic book from P.K. Hallinan that beautifully shares the love God has for all his children.
