Book Review: My Picnic Basket: And How God Is Always Near

My Picnic Basket

My Picnic Basket: And How God Is Always Near  by Dr. Mary Manz Simon

About the Book: Summer picnics are all about food and fun. But there’s something else in this picnic basket: a reminder that God is always near.

Mary says:”Fear is a predictable emotion during early childhood. Thunderstorms, darkness, clowns, and even big dogs can scare young children. Yet as they cope with these recurring issues, a reminder that ‘God’s always with me’ comforts a parent and reassures a child.”

My Review: This is another great book from the author. She writes about the age appropriate biblical concepts that are woven around the recurring theme of how God watches over us. As the little boy in the book pack his picnic basket with food and toys for play, he smiles because he knows that God is with him through out the day. He knows that God will always provide for him as he shares his watermelon and sandwich with his friends. When it starts to rain God will protect him and his friends as they shelter under the umbrella. According to God’s words “I will be with you always” Matthew 28:20. God will always protect and answer our prayers.

This book shows a cut out images of items in the basket which will draw any child’s attention.



FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
