I wanted this book for my Snapper. She is finally starting to talk and nothing gets her more excited than animals. I knew that reading this book with her would not only be educational (get her to say body parts, animals, what the animals say, etc), but it would help instill the love of God in her early. Luckily, my children love learning about God. The problem is that sometimes Snapper gets frustrated because she can't talk about her feelings. With the help of books, I can watch her learn, she gets excited, and she can point to different topics and ideas. This book was absolutely perfect for teaching her how much God loves us and how important each and every one of us are to him.
