I am always looking for wonderfully delightful books to read with my children. Nothing by Natalee Creech, Illustrated by Joseph Cowman, fit perfectly to our taste. Nothing by Natalee Creech was gifted to us through the Homeschool Review Crew from WorthyKids, an imprint of Hachette Book Group.
From the adorable cover, to the beautifully designed pages inside, this book brought joy and excitement as we read it together. The rhyming design of the words flows beautifully to create a fun story that you won’t soon forget. The words are easy enough for the young reader to follow and read themselves for their own enjoyment as well.
Sentences are simple and don’t take a long time to follow. The book is for ages 4-7 specifically but could be read by an older child as well. I’d say up to 10 or so in age. It is a hardback book with a paper dust cover. The printed image on the book is similarly designed to the dust cover as well so it is just as appealing without.
Nothing shares the story of the Love that God has for us all. Each pages focuses on how God loves us no matter where we are or how far we go. Even clothed, when we are wrong, when we are sad, when we are immensely happy – God loves us no matter what. Deep in the Ocean, high in the sky, in a far away place, or even riding a bike – God loves us everywhere and He forgives our faults and Sins.
The book is around 32 pages in length with vivid imagery that fills the imagination with creative thought flowing throughout. Designs are variety in size, helping to bring the larger images to life, emphasizing on different aspects of the story. I particularly like the giant Octopus, the large Hot Air balloon and the sweet girl’s over-sized smiling face at the end of the story. Jack’s favorites were the Sea scenes. He loves anything Ocean related.
Natalee Creech enjoys writing Scripture based children’s stories that warm the heart. Her creative style pairs well with Joseph Cowman’s artist hand. Joseph creates beautifully designed worlds that truly reach far to catch the imagination of children and adults alike.
Natalee Creech is a writer and a teacher who enjoys children and sharing the gospel with others. She lives in Canada but was educated in the United States and spent several years educating others in South Korea. She has a cat named Oreo that she loves.
Joseph Cowman lives in Idaho, where he designs delightfully original illustrations for children’s books. His loves of art developed early through a vivid imagination, and a love of design, creating and building. The worlds he creates are truly inspiring.
We really loved this book. It brought joy to us together and created a loving snugly moment for us to remember. It’s a book that will remain in our family for many years and already has a special place among our other favorites on our bookshelf. The kids loved the images within the large pages. The coloring of the characters, the blends of color, and the flowing words worked wonderfully together to create a happy story to read again and again.
