Thank You, God, For Loving Me (Max Lucado's Little Hermie)

by Max Lucado

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Thank You, God, For Loving Me and Thank You, God, For Blessing Me board books about Hermie by Max Lucado are very cute and sweet. The messages within are biblical and good for a child to hear. They are not stories, rather prayers that Hermie says to God, thanking God for blessing and loving him. They are more bedtime-style books, along the lines of a soothing lullaby for children ages 1 and 2. – Jennifer Joneleit,

In Thank You, God, for Loving Me by Max Lucado, preschoolers are presented a book that is sturdy (the thick pages are anti-chewable), colorful (there are five double-page spreads of scenes of flashy autumn leaves, dark and gloomy rain storms, and bright sunshine days in the yard), and poetic (the four-line stanzas on each fold-open page are rhymed tributes to God's creative power).

Little Hermie, the main character, is a caterpillar who plays with ladybugs, bumblebees, and moths. Together they show appreciation for God's love, protection, and artistic creativity. They pray words of thanksgiving in all they do. The book can be read in five minutes, making it perfect as a story just before bedtime. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley,
