Guess How Much God Loves You is the story of seven-year-old Lucy Lu, a colorful, creatively curious first-grader, who is starting to have serious questions about God. How old is He? Does He sleep? What does He do all day? And the biggest one of all-does God love me? After one particularly hard day of being bullied by her classmates at school, Lucy feels like she doesn’t matter. She sits with Papa Joe, who has promised to answer her questions about God, launching them onto a journey to discover God’s never-changing, never-failing, never-ending love. What follows is a wild adventure through the Bible, where Lucy and her papa find themselves in the middle of each page of the exciting story of God’s love and faithfulness for all people throughout all of history.
7-year-old Lucy Lu is feeling down. Her classmates are being mean. She knows her grandfather loves her, but she questions whether God loves her and if she really matters. Her natural curiosity about God prompts an open discussion with her Papa Joe. Papa Joe uses the Creation story to describe God’s love for Lucy Lu, and for all of us. As Lucy Lu cruises through the seven days of creation on Papa Joe’s scooter, she comes to understand God’s immense love.
Author Karen Ferguson uses the Creation story creatively to convey two major themes – Creation and God’s love – in one entertaining story. The full-color illustrations complement the story well.
Guess How Much God Loves You would lend itself well to a Sunday school lesson or classroom discussion.
