Just In Case You Ever Wonder - a book review

Another eBook for my kids. This one was a big hit with my reader.

From the publisher: A timeless children's classic by best-selling author, Max Lucado, that reinforces the love of a parent.
There are certain words that every child longs to hear . . . affirmation of unconditional love, promises of support, and words of encouragement. Just in Case You Ever Wonder wraps your children in its tender message of love, comfort, and protection, showing them that as they grow and change, you'll always be there for them—whether it's "monsters in the closet" or hard times when other kids are mean. Beloved author, Max Lucado, helps express unconditional love for a child—simply, powerfully, and forever.

My reader has been asking to read this book every time we're in the car (which isn't often). I love that she loves this book. This girl of mine has regular nightmares about her loved ones dying and being left behind. This book speaks to her heart about losing loved ones and about loving those around you. Every time she reads it she picks a new favorite page. She even figured out the Kindle by reading this book. This is definitely a book that I am going to be keeping on hand for those moments when she feels overwhelmed by her feelings. Max Lucado really wrapped it all up in this simple book. I enjoyed reading it as much as my second grader did. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who may be having separation anxiety or be hurting the loss of a loved one. I would recommend it for all ages because it's so simple and concise. It gets right to the point and does it in a way only Max Lucado can do.
