This picture book is an inspiring, uplifting celebration of God’s love for all, a love that is more plentiful than every cloud and grain of sand, stronger than every wave in the sea, and greater than the tallest towering tree.

God’s love is more plentiful than the raindrops and snowflakes that fall; more majestic than the birds that fill the skies; and brighter than the twinkling stars that light up the night skies. Simple rhyming text and stunning artwork help depict each scene of adults and children experiencing the majesty of God’s creation and His great love for all. Animal families mirror the human families to remind us that everything was created by God and is loved all the same by Him.

Gentle rhyming verses introduce young children to the enormity and steadfastness of God’s love.
Every spread except the final one starts with the titular question. A rhyming ABA verse goes on to describe the vastness of God’s love: “More than every cloud above. / He watches and protects you / and keeps you in His love.” On this page, readers see an adult with their arm around a child as well as a parent-child cat duo curled up together in slumber and a cow watching out for its calf. Many pages echo the message in the illustrations like this. “If ever you feel small and scared, / He will hold you in His hand” shows a parent holding an infant as the family explores a tidal pool. God’s love is described as greater than all sorts of natural things, including grains of sand, raindrops, ocean waves, trees, and twinkling stars. The illustrations depict families that are diverse in gender, race, skin tone, age, ability, and number of members, and the nature scenes go through all four seasons as well as an entire day, from sunrise to nighttime. Wildlife is anthropomorphized to emphasize tender expressions and loving actions. The nature scenes and warm family interactions reinforce and make visible the message of God’s love.
