Are you in need of a book which will teach young children about God and the plan he made to save us?

God’s Great Plan, by Melissa Cutrera and illustrated by Matthew Sample II, is about the story of Creation, Fall, and Redemption.  This book contains concise rhyming and discusses the creation, fall, redemption, sanctification, and glorification.

The children looking at the illustrations will see the truths being taught to the two children in the book by their grandfather.

About the author- Melissa Cutrera currently lives with her husband and two children in Utah.  She has many interests and has been a nursery director, public school teacher, and a French teacher to homeschool students.

My thoughts- God’s Great Plan, by Melissa Cutrera and illustrated by Matthew Sample II, was a great book to illustrate what God has done for us.  I thought it was great to have two children who are being shown by their grandfather what God did for us.  To me, that shows children who read the book or have it read to them how people can tell other people about God’s story.

This book was short and to the point, which made a lot more sense to me than having a longer story which may not have said so much.  To me, the most important part of this book was the illustrations, because they were able to say so much more than the text did.  I could really understand the point of the story by looking at the illustrations. 

This book would have been perfect if there had been a list of questions in the back of the book for parents to discuss with their children.

My eight-year-old daughter said, “I liked the illustrations.  I liked reading the book.  It would be good for children younger and older than me.”

My almost ten-year-old son said, “I liked the picture of God forming Adam.  I think this book would be good for children my age.”  

I highly recommend this book.
