The second I saw this book I knew I had to have it for my kids since it was based on my favorite verse from Jeremiah. The Plans I Have for You from Amy Parker touches on this verse and makes it applicable for kids lives.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
This is the first time I’ve seen this verse specifically applied to children lives and Parker does it beautifully making it whimsical with rhymes that are catchy for little ears.
I really like how the word YOU is in all caps, larger than life and colorful to jump out at you from the page. It makes kids really focus in on the fact that they are special and God has plans for each and every one of them.
It’s hard for kids to grasp the concept of God and his plans for them and I think the way this is applied to little ones lives is wonderful and the illustrations line up perfectly with the message.
The Plans I Have for You is a wonderful demonstration of God’s love and plans for everyones lives and applying is perfectly to children.
