Children’s Book Review | God, I Know You’re There

*I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

God, I Know You’re There was written by Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrated by Lucy Fleming. This book was published by Tommy Nelson, Thomas Nelson’s children division, a registered trademark of Harper Collins Christian Publishing, Inc. This is a twenty-four page board book for young children.

God, I can’t see You.
Still I know You’re there.
You’re in the love I give away—
The sparkle when I care.

And if Your love is what I show,
My heart is fuller still, I know.”


First page

God, I Know You’re There is a simple and poetic way to teach your children about the presence of God, and that He is still there even though they can not see or touch him. The animals and colorful illustrations will surely grab their attention. (There is a diverse ethnic representation, for those wondering.)

So far, this is my favorite children’s book for this year. I really love the illustrations… One of them reminded me of Van Gogh. I also like that this is a smaller board book, so it’s easier to hold with a toddler and baby on my lap.
