Book Review/Giveaway: More Than What I See. Ends August 31st

More Than What I See by Alisha Smith

About the Book: Grace Joy Smith! Grace hears these three little words way too often. It seems like she is always messing up, but she doesn’t mean too! Then Apostle Cornelius Sanders II teaches Grace an important lesson about God’s love and how she is more than what she sees.

My Review: When Grace hears “Grace Joy Smith!” she knows that she has done something wrong. She put her dirty clothes in the laundry basket and completed her home work so what could it be? Then she found out that she forgot to close the refrigerator door again, pick up her crayons, scissors, and books off the floor. Why can’t she do anything right, she ask herself. Then she remembered what her Apostle told her – “I’m more than what I see”. 

Children feel bad when they have done something wrong or made to feel that they are no good. This book will teach children how to say sorry and believe that no matter what their mistakes are their parents and God still loves them. A great read and the artwork helps tell the story. I high recommend this book.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful book for my nieces. They are 4 and 5 years old- although they understand the premise of picking up their things, they don’t understand that they are “more than what they see”. Definitely added to my list of books for them.

  2. This sounds like a good book for all kids. A lot of kids don’t realize what they have done or haven’t done is wrong, so when a parent yells at them, they are left wondering why that parent doesn’t love them anymore. This book sounds like it will answer their questions.

  4. This is such an appropriate book for children. Children want to please adults and suffer inwardly when they feel they haven’t done something that was expected of them. This book sounds like a winner for children.

  5. This sounds like a great book for kids. Most kids always seem to thing that when parents get divorced its because they were bad or did something wrong. Children always want to do things to please their parents. We need to build their self confidence.

  6. What a great lessons for kids! I also think that as a parent this could be a good reminder to tell our children that they are a gift from God, no matter what happens.

  7. My daughter is always hanging her head when we bring to her attention something she did wrong or forgot to do, even when we try to say it nicely. I would like her to realize that we all make mistakes and that we’re just trying to help her be the best she can be without getting down on herself. This sounds like a great teaching tool.

  8. This is a perfect book for my children, especially my daughter. Sometimes she feels ashamed when she does something wrong and says that she is bad. I tell her that she is not bad, she just needs to try to make better choices. More Than What I See would help me reaffirm to her that she is very loved, even when she does something that isn’t right. daisysmom2002 at

  9. This sounds like a book my daughter would enjoy reading. She has a hard time remembering to think before she speaks and sometimes it gets her into trouble… :-/ This would be a great way to help her understand that she is loved no matter what…on top of us telling her 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win! 🙂

  10. I remember my kids when they were younger hanging their heads if we had to have a talk about something they did wrong . I would tell them that even if I was angry, I still Loved them. And always would. I think it’s great for them to read a book like this to help bolster that confidence.

  11. Saying you are sorry is so hard to do (as an adult or as a child)! We can never be told enough about how much God loves us and we are definitely more than what we ourselves can see. This sounds like a book that would be a blessing to parents and their child.

  12. What a great book for the younger generation. What a benefit it would be for kids to read this and be able to learn from it.
