Overview "Tell me about love." Where does a parent, grandparent, or teacher begin when presented with such a complicated inquiry? Through the simple story of a family and their dog's great love and sacrifice, Tell Me About Love helps children understand that true love is about self-sacrifice, and how much Jesus loves us. The Big Topics for Little Kids series is an excellent resource for anyone who wishes to explain hard-to-understand spiritual concepts to young children. With concrete examples to which children can relate, Joel Anderson breaks down huge concepts into tiny pieces that little minds can understand.

This is a great book... one of three in a fabulous series! Feb 21, 2007
A truly moving book! I have all three of the books in the Big Topics for Little Kids series. My kids love them all.
I've never seen an online way to view an entire book... but if you go to the author's site (search for bigtopicsforlittlekids) and you'll be able to flip through every page of these beautiful books online!
Clear cut, Imaginative, captivating and loving May 31, 2006
I purchased this book for my preschooler as a way to introduce the message of salvation. This book is a fantastic parallel to the simple message of salvation. The author uses a dog that saves her family as their house burns down. It shows how the family loved the dog, and how the dog loved the family. The book then tells of the night "that changed everything". It is somewhat sad, but so is what Jesus did for us on the cross. While the story is sad, it is also heartwarming, and full of compassion. The issustrations are captivating for little ones. It also includes a question and answer session in the back in case your child has any questions. Wonderful book!
