Book Review: God Bless our Baby by Hannah C. Hall
God Bless our Baby is written by Hannah C. Hall and illustrated by Steve Whitlow. It is published by Tommy Nelson.
God Bless our Baby is a beautiful board book with a super soft cover. The premise of the "storyline" is that different animal families have new babies. The first one, a squirrel family, is expecting a baby. The child squirrel feels the mother squirrel's belly, lovingly awaiting the birth of a new brother or sister.
The story is set to rhyme and is wonderfully done. All of gives God credit for bringing another baby into the world, as well as reminds the readers to ask God to bless the new babies in their homes.
Throughout the book, the families are diverse. I love how the bear family claims that they do not look the same but they all share love. For those children who have a diverse family (such as in the cases of some adopted children), that can be a very pertinent point.
The illustrations in the book are gorgeous and sure to keep a very young child turning the pages.
I love God Bless our Baby. It carries with it a strong message of love and family that we, as Christians, never want to lose.
