With simple words, engaging illustrations, and robust board-book format, this charming rhyming book is ideal for toddlers.
This board book provides a shorter version of Melissa Kruger’s His Grace Is Enough, helping young children to explore the unique and wonderful Christian message of God’s grace: that Jesus offers forgiveness and allows us to move on from our mistakes.
It can be used to share the heart of the Christian faith with young children or to remind them that Jesus is the person to run to when they mess up.
Isobel Lundie’s vibrant illustrations provide plenty to look at and engage with on every page.
This board book adapts the picture book His Grace is Enough for even younger children. The book includes some of the same rhythmic text from Melissa Kruger and cute illustrations from Isobel Lundie, and it flows extremely well. You can’t tell where things are different unless you’re comparing this directly to the original version. There are no weird transitions or pacing gaps, and the book feels complete and satisfying exactly the way it is.
The text has a solid rhyme scheme and reassuring message, and the illustrations show diverse children doing wrong things and receiving grace-filled reassurances from their parents. The book emphasizes that even when we fail, God still loves us, and there is a child-level explanation of the gospel at the end. The book says that Jesus paid the price for our sin and gives us new life, and that because of God’s grace, we are able to change. Melissa Kruger handles this complex topic in a child-friendly and biblical way, and this will be a helpful way for families and church environments to introduce the concept of grace to young children.
His Grace is Enough Board Book is a great book for Christian families, and this would make a great baby shower gift. The reassuring, gospel-focused message will also encourage parents as they train their kids, and even though I wish that this book had included a note for parents with related Bible verses and other ideas for discussing grace with their kids, this is an excellent, engaging way to talk with kids about God’s love and grace for them.
