Book Review: I Am- The Names of God for Little Ones By Diane Stortz

Book Description:

God is the Creator, the Healer, our Savior, and our Friend. And it is through God’s names that we understand His character. Now little ones will understand how great our God is by learning His names and all the ways He cares for them.

Show your little one the character of God with I AM: The Names of God for Little Ones. Capturing the names and characteristics of God through short Bible stories, Scripture, and bright illustrations, I AM: The Names of God for Little Ones helps you learn about God in a way that will draw even the youngest child. Children will close the book feeling loved, protected, and secure in the arms of the great I AM.

Written by bestselling author Diane Stortz and illustrated by Diane Le Feyer, I AM: The Names of God for Little Ones is a great companion to the bestselling Bible storybook I AM.

My Review:

I was excited to review I Am: The Names if God for Little Ones by Diane Shortz. I have six children and I homeschool them all. I love to find children’s material that teach the nature of God. Finding this book brought excitement because I love teaching the nature and character of God. The names of God are important because they are simple but profound ways to learn the nature and character of God.

I Am: The Names if God for Little Ones by Diane Shortz is a children’s board book with a semi-soft cover. Each two-spread page has a name of God, two scriptures and a prayer. I absolutely love that the author uses the Hebrew Names for Creator (Elohim), God All-Powerful (El Shaddai), I Am (Jehovah), God Who Saves (El Moshaah), The Lord Will Provide ( Jehovah Jireh), The Lord Who Heals (Jehovah Rophe) and Teacher (Rabbi). When the book goes into New Testament names of God (Son of God, Teacher / Rabbi, Good Shepherd, Savior, Friend and King of Kings) only one of the names is in Hebrew. I wish the book would have included more Hebrew names like Adonai for Lord and Yeshua for Jesus.

I would recommend I Am: The Names if God for Little Ones by Diane Shortz for Preschoolers because it is a board book and the lack of detail. This book is a good book for introducing preschoolers to the names of God with some Scripture. I am happy to have this book to teach my littles.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Im a stay at home, homeschooling mom of six awesome kids. But for fun on the side like doodles in the margin, I like to sew, edit books, design websites, make homeschool resources, study Biblical dream interpretation, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design. I love books and researching. There is always something to learn.
