It was only a few months ago when we were first introduced to a sweet story about a little bear named Tucker who sought to help his friends in need. He knew that he wouldn't be able to help them by himself, so he goes on a quest to find the King. When he eventually gets to the castle, he's quite surprised that the King was eagerly awaiting his arrival. It is then that Tucker learns all about the King and who He really is, a "Good Father."
If any of what I'm saying sounds familiar, then you probably remember my previous review of the beautiful children's book, Good Good Father. This sweet story, written by, Christian performing artists, Chris Tomlin and Pat Barrett, is based off of the hit song. Every time I hear this song, I'm reminded of how amazing God's love is, and every time I read Good Good Father to my son, he can be reminded of this, as well.
Just recently we were blessed with the new board book version of this story, Good Good Father for Little Ones. This book is very similar to the previous release, expect that it's created for much younger children in mind.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
You have heard a thousand stories, but the truth in Good Good Father for Little Ones will move your heart. This precious rhyming board book, written by Grammy award-winning Christian music artist Chris Tomlin and Pat Barrett (Housefires), leaves little ones with a greater understanding of who God is and who they are because they are loved by Him.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Chris Tomlin is among the most well-known and influential artists in music. His songs include “How Great Is Our God,” “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone),” “Our God,” and most recently, “Good Good Father,” to name a few. It is estimated that each week 20–30 million people sing one of Tomlin’s songs in worship. More than anything, Chris loves being a husband to Lauren and a daddy to Ashlyn and Madison.
Pat Barrett is a husband, father, songwriter, and worship leader based out of Atlanta, Georgia. He is the worship pastor of Grace-Midtown Church and cowriter of the #1 song “Good Good Father.” Pat also travels with Housefires, a worship expression based out of the Atlanta area.
Good Good Father for Little Ones includes those same delightful illustrations by Lorna Hussy, showing Tucker as he sets out on his trip to see the King. It also has a hard padded cover and sturdy board book pages, all with rounded corners. Besides the physical appearance being different than the picture book version, the text is also set up differently. Since this is a book meant for younger children, there are shorter sentences. This feature not only keeps the story short and sweet for little ones, but can also help beginning readers who would like to try and read this on their own.
Both books when compared side by side follow a similar storyline, but Good Good Father for Little Ones tells things a bit differently. Rather than focusing on the story of Tucker's journey to see the King before he learns what a good father really is, this book actually begins the story by telling the reader what a good father is like, and then continues on in that same format throughout.
What is a Good Good Father like? Like a king who is fair and kind, He rules with your very best in mind.
Good Good Father for Little Ones, while a more simplified version of the original Good Good Father, does a wonderful job of spreading the precious news to young children on who God is and all that He can do for them. Both books, although similar, each hold their own unique qualities. We're blessed to have both in my son's home library.
