Alicia Bayer
This is a sweet, positive little rhyming Christian picture book in which a parent tells a child how much he/she is loved. Lovely watercolor illustrations show different animal families having fun together as the narrator describes how wonderful life will be as the child grows up and how much he/she is loved by the narrator and by God. The text and rhyming are not the strongest, but the message is warm and uplifting.

And once the day's over, you'll hop in the bath,
Wash dust from your face, and giv

I don't make a habit of reading books meant for children ,but when I saw this on Netgalley I couldn't stop thinking about it .

It was adorable . God Loves You , Little Peanut was a cozy little book with adorable illustrations . The prose was lovely , the message even more so .

I wish I had this book around when I was a kid . I'll definitely be looking for it when it is released to buy for someone in my family . ☺️

Your're truly a blessing, one of a kind on this earth. Nothing comes close to the treasure you're worth.

A sweet picture book on all the different ways parents and God love you. It is filled with joy. A child feels love when they are enjoyed and not thought of has burden to bear. With different animals on each page, mom and dad are having fun with their little peanut.

A Special Thank you to ZonderKidz and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

God Loves You, Little Peanut is a delightful story showcasing the unconditional love from God and parents for their children. It is told in rhyming verse, and features lots of adorable animal families that have been anthropomorphised. It shows them throughout the day doing things like baking cookies, watching the clouds, playing in the park and snuggling. The story is told in rhyme that flows well and has great cadence. It opens with welcoming the new babe and continues on as the young one grows ...more

This is one of my favorite books for children that I have seen in a very long time. I love the style of the illustrations, the vibrant colors, and the depth of love of God that is portrayed from parent or grandparent to child through the sweet encouraging text.

Little animals are the characters in the book, but it's not done in a strange or odd way. They were fluffy little creatures that seemed more like teddy bear or plush style animals.

I did read to my little girl who is 19. She liked it just a

This is an adorable children's bedtime storybook with a Christian theme.
The animal characters are quirky and fun and sure to appeal to kids of all ages. I did wonder why there was a stork delivering a baby.....

Thank you Zonderkidz and netgalley for this copy in exchange for my honest review.

This is a sweet book with good art that explores the love from a parent to small child through the Christian worldview. Each page features an animal family that represents a different culture.

It begs the question, however, why animals? Is there a reason it could not have been people? As I am shopping around and increasing diversity in my children's library, I would not choose this type of "representation" that fee

"God Loves You, Little Peanut" is the celebratory feeling that a parent, grandparent, guardian or anyone for that matter feels when a brand new little one enters into their lives. Pure joy!

This delightful rhyming book showcases playtimes, adventure times, and snuggle times that occur as a baby progresses throughout the day. Anthropomorphic animals open a lens to the reader as to how baby and parent share and covet each moment together from morning until night. Children will identify with those

A dear, heartwarming picture book with a message to be treasured.

I love, Love, LOVE this sweet, hardback children’s book. And I mean EVERYTHING about it. The cover (and matching slipcover) is adorable, the illustrations are cute and detailed, and the meaning gets me all choked up. It showcases not only God’s love for a newborn, but a parents or grandparents love as well.

God Loves You, Little Peanut is delivered in a gentle cadence, with fun to read rhymes, and sweet declarations. I plan to read

What a sweet, sweet story! I have to admit that God Loves You, Little Peanut brought a couple of tears to my eyes as I imagined reading it to my granddaughter. The message of love for a child — both of his or her earthly parents and God — is told in rhyming verse with charming illustrations. The story tells of all the special, yet everyday moments in a child’s life. As I was reading the book, I kept thinking that my son and daughter-in-love just had to have this book! Perfect for a newborn’s lib ...more

God Loves You, Little Peanut. By Annette Bourland, Illustrator: Rosalinde Bonnet. 2020. Zonderkidz (ARC eBook).

God Loves You, Little Peanut will take families on a charming jaunt across oceans, jungles and mountains, as mothers and fathers demonstrate their love for their children and teach them how to pray, express gratitude and have fun along the way. Everyone will smile looking at pages of adult and baby foxes, elephants, koalas and more, swinging, sledding, and cloud gazing before it is time

This was such a cute book! I love the bright, vivid pictures that helped to keep the kids attention. It was short, sweet and lovely. Perfect for a kids book! The kids already asked to read it again. I cant wait to add this to our shelves. Thank you so much this wonderful opportunity and a new favorite for my family.

What a cute adorable book. I read this with my 6 year old and she loved the illustrations and cute little nickname. I love that it was a book that sparked conversations about the future and relationships. with my daughter. I am planning to buy a couple copies of this to gift to a few people with young children that would really enjoy this story.

I was blessed to be able to read an advanced copy of this book and it was wonderful! The illustrations are delightful, showcasing many parent/child couples around the world as animals, but doing people things like baking cookies together, watching the clouds, playing in the park. The story reinforces the bonds between parents/grandparents and children. Highly recommended!
