Publishers Description Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. --Psalm 68:19
From Publishers Weekly Now available as a board book, Warnes's interpretation of the popular hymn racks up big points for its beguiling watercolors of a friendly bear family whose straightforward piety is rooted in the affection among parents and child. Young audiences will gravitate to the cozy scenes: a parent encircles the cub in his arms to read in bed from My First Bible, the bears dye Easter eggs (as He loved so long ago), garden, make gingerbread bears and roast marshmallows, among many enviable activities that frequently show them in tune with the natural world. Rounded corners and padded covers make this volume extra-safe; gilt edging cues in kids to its special contents. Ages 2-5. (Jan.)Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Tim has drawn closely on his own experiences to give us a pictorial celebration of family life, and to share God's love for all of us. The hens you see in the pictures are from Tim's very own backyard.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Loves Me!?
Cute illustrations, but unrelated Nov 15, 2007
The book includes the words and music to "Jesus Loves Me" and I enjoy singing the song while I turn the pages with my 2-year-old. Though the illustrations of the bear family are clear and cute, I'm not sure what they have to do with the song. There are no pictures of Jesus, just pictures of the little bear playing with his parents.
Adorable! Oct 10, 2007
Every parent/nursery should have this book! The message is clear, and the illustrations are FANTASTIC! Almost makes me cry every time I read/sing this book to my son at bedtime.
Fabulous Illustrations Feb 1, 2007
We received this book as a gift, and since have gifted it to two other children. The pictures are so wonderful and the book includes the sheet music for the song in the back.
