Simple Acts of Love

"Where Does Love Hide?"  Is a fun lift-the-flap book written by Mary Simon and illustrated by Hannah Wood.  This book is artfully created to depict easily recognizable scenes in everyday life.  Each page poses the question of where love is hiding.  Followed by a suggestion based on a Bible verse of how love can be put into action.

At first glance this book looks like another simple children’s book filled with fun pictures and a good general theme of God’s love.  But as you read through the scenarios it prompts the read to think about how love is acted out.  It also reinforces the fact that while God first loved us and we get to in turn love God and others.  I gave the book to my 6 year old son and after reading it he said with a smile.  “I like it!  It opens up inside and it has Bible verses.”  I enjoy hearing how my kids like to be Christ’s hands and feet of love toward others.

I received a complimentary copy of the book for review purposes from Tyndale House.
