Amazon is offering I Love You This Much: A Song of God's Love by Lynn Hodges and Sue Buchanan as a free digital ebook for the Kindle. The book is illustrated by John Bendall-Brunello and is published by Zondervan.
This is a cute picture book about a baby bear and his/her parent. The child could be either sex and so could the parent. The parent bear is expressing love to the child in words and actions. The text is written in a rhyming prose that flows very nicely. Children will love the repetition of the words, "I Love You This Much!"
The parent bear goes on to explain to the child that God loves him and will always be with him. The book provides a wonderful example of parental love and the love of God.
The illustrations are very good and they complement the text. Unfortunately, the pictures will not be in color on the Kindle. It does not appear that any special formatting was done to prepare this book for the Kindle. I read the book in several different font sizes to see if that would make a difference. It did not.
The cover of the book states "Bonus Music CD" but that is not available on the Kindle. The sub-title of the book is "A Song of God's Love" but there is no reference to music or singing in this version.
If you have a Kindle and a young child, I think you should definitely download this book and share it with him/her. I look forward to seeing many more picture books for the Kindle from this publisher and from others. These free offers ususlly don't last very long so download your book TODAY!
