While this hardcover book is geared to the pre-K through second grade set, I think it's actually quite appropriate for children in the toddler set provided the toddler you read it to doesn't have a penchant for tearing pages. [I'd actually really like to see a sturdy board book version of this book since I'm presently trying to protect the book from my toddler as I write this review.] The story is comprised of short sentences which makes it ideal for little ones with short attention spans. The illustrations for this book show a diverse group of children doing all sorts of activities that little ones will easily be able to relate to their own lives. I can see using this book at home with young children to teach them about how God created each of us with a body and an immortal soul from the moment we first existed. It's also a great book to read to children in a religious education class. I haven't brought this book in to read to my kindergarteners yet, but it will be making an appearance very soon. I suspect it will be a great jumping off point to discuss God's wonderful gift of a soul with the class.
I was provided with a review copy of Forever You by the publisher, Pauline Kids, in exchange for my honest review. Visit Pauline Media for a sneak peek into this book.
