God is Always Good *Review & Giveaway

 God is Always Good brings comfort for kids facing grief, worry or scary times. Written by Tama Fortner and illustrated by Veronica Vasylenko.

A remarkable tool for parents to use for everything from the death of a goldfish to a national tragedy.

A friend who doesn’t keep a promise. A scary storm. A soldier who goes off to war. Saying goodbye to a pet—or a loved one. Every day, children come in contact with scary or sad situations where they can feel helpless and alone. Filled with scriptures, soft illustrations, and sweet, reassuring text, this book will broadly address scary situations and remind children that God is always in control and that He will bring good out of bad things.
God Is Always Good features sweet illustrations filled with animal characters who show how God never leaves His children alone, and we can see Him through the helping hands of others, a hug, a warm blanket, or even a smile. Each spread features a scripture, giving children biblical assurance that God keeps His promises.
Christian parents will love having a biblically based resource, backed up by Scripture, to bring comfort to children during difficult times.

The illustrations are superb! I love how Mommy bunny reassures the little bunny of the greatness of God. From God creating us and thinking we are pretty marvelous, to God knowing the number of hairs on our head. I appreciate how the author says that God is hurt when 'not so good' things happen too. God is with the brave people like the firemen, doctors, etc to use them to help the people around us.
Each page has a scripture verse that reinforces the concept being taught. You can't error when you include scripture in a children's book!
