The Whole World In His Hands: A Book Review & Kids Craft

**A huge thanks to Family Christian for sponsoring today's post. All thoughts are my own.

He's got the whole world in his hands.

There are a few songs out there that every child knows. Mary Had A Little Lamb, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Jesus Loves Me...and He's Got The Whole World In His Hands!

These songs define childhood. Some because they're easy to remember and easy to sing. Some because they truly are a great message for kids. That is certainly the case with He's Got The Whole World in His Hands! What a must hear message for us all!

God holds all of us- everything- in his hands. We can tell our kids over and over how big God is, but to kids WE'RE big. Buildings are big. Trees are big. The bus is big. The world is big. So a God that can hold the whole world is the palm of his hand?? That's HUGE.

As I said, it's a great song, a great message...and now it's a pretty wonderful sound book too!

These little words can share a big message about God

See the pictures, touch the buttons, and hear the words of a childhood favorite--The Whole World in His Hands.  With six sound buttons and an on/off switch, this delightful sound book will make sure little ones know they are loved by a mighty God. 

In the Little Words Matter(TM) books, it only takes a few words to share a big message. Crafted especially for toddlers, these books make biblical truths easily understandable and enjoyable for little ones and their parents too

What child doesn't love sound books? Mine certainly do! Nothing takes a fun story to the next level with fun sounds and buttons to push! So, my daughter couldn't wait to get her hands on it! The fun thing about this particularly sound book is that it doesn't just provide fun sound effects like most I've seen, but instead reads the entire story out loud. As much as I love reading books to my children, sometimes I need to wash the dishes or cook supper, so I loved that I could give this to my daughter and keep her occupied on her own when I am unable to read with her. The pictures are cute, the words are simple and it truly is the ideal book to introduce toddlers to the wonders of God! I cannot wait to see more books like this in the future!

And in our house, we love bringing the books to life so we created this super fun kids craft to do just that!
