This is a delightful addition to the Little Me, Big God series. There are now five books altogether, with two more due to be released in October, I believe. It tells the story of the feeding of the five thousand in a very modern way and the excellent illustrations blend effortlessly with the text in developing the story line. There are lots of things to look out for in the different scenes, especially finding the little boy on each page. Although aimed at two to four-year-olds, I feel this is a bit restrictive as the book is very suitable for older children as well, whether to read with adults or on their own.
When piloted with grandchildren, the statement ‘…and there were leftovers!’ prompted the challenging question from the five-year-old: ‘How are there leftovers?’ I particularly like the child-friendly gospel application on the last pages and the subsequent notes for adults, which are incredibly useful when giving the books to children of unchurched parents. I note that the books have been translated into several European languages; rightly so. They deserve to be as widely disseminated as possible.
