ABOUT THE BOOK

Release Date: July 19, 2022
Genre: Children’s Picture Book, Christian
Guess How Much God Loves You is the story of seven-year-old Lucy Lu, a colorful, creatively curious first grader who is starting to have serious questions about God. Questions like: How old is He? Does He sleep? What does He do all day? And the biggest one of all – does God really love me?
After one particularly hard day at school, bullied by her classmates and feeling like she doesn’t matter, Lucy sits with her Papa Joe who has promised to answer these questions and more, launching them onto a journey to discover God’s never changing, never failing, never ending love.
What follows is a wild adventure through the Bible, where Lucy and her Papa literally find themselves in the middle of it all, on each page of the exciting story of God’s love and faithfulness for ALL people throughout ALL of history!
IN MY OPINION
Guess How Much God Loves You by Karen Ferguson is a picture book that not only shows children how big God’s love for them is, it’s also a wonderful reminder for adults.
The illustrations throughout the book fit well with the story and young readers will be able to see a bit of themselves in Lucy. I thoroughly appreciated the use of scripture through the book and that there is a wide adult leading Lucy through these Biblical truths.
This book walks readers through the creation story while leaving room for future books, which is appropriate as God’s love in written form would fill every page available. There are some more Biblical bullet points at the end of the book as well as some questions that will create some discussion for the whole family. In fact, Guess How Much I Love You would make an excellent story to dive into for a night of devotions with young children or for a Sunday school class centered around the creation.
