Book Review: Just in Case You Ever Wonder

There are so many books I've missed out on.  When I had a chance to review the new edition of Just in Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado, I knew I had to take it.  Although I have often heard this title mentioned, I had never read it.

That situation is now rectified.

I sat down with my 5- and 7-year-olds and read the book.  And now I question whether or not I ought to get some one-on-one time with my older boys (almost 11 up through 14.5) and read it to them too.  They will undoubtedly roll their eyes at me a bit, but still... the message that they are special, and God put them in THIS family, oh, maybe teens need that even more than the little ones.

From the publisher:
A timeless children's classic by best-selling author, Max Lucado, that reinforces the love of a parent.

There are certain words that every child longs to hear . . . affirmation of unconditional love, promises of support, and words of encouragement. Just in Case You Ever Wonder wraps your children in its tender message of love, comfort, and protection, showing them that as they grow and change, you'll always be there for them—whether it's "monsters in the closet" or hard times when other kids are mean. Beloved author, Max Lucado, helps express unconditional love for a child—simply, powerfully, and forever.
This is a sweet book, and definitely is a keeper.

We absolutely loved this book as well. Some dear friends gave it to us a while back and I still tear up every time I read it. Love it!
