Book Description

Encourage your children’s sense of wonder and faith with I Can Only Imagine for Little Ones, inspired by the hit song by MercyMe. This delightful board book will capture your family’s childlike faith and imagination.

I Can Only Imagine for Little Ones asks questions a child might ask about God and invites families to wonder together: What is heaven like? What does God do? What would it be like to spend a day with Jesus? Children will see that although experiencing the glory of heaven may be far off, we can enjoy a friendship with Jesus every day – right here on earth. Whimsical, playful illustrations and thought-provoking questions make this a book families will cherish.

Fun and vibrant illustrations offer a vivid visual and will help your children see that God can be found everywhere, every day.

The more I imagine, the more I wish I knew.

I wonder, would God like pancakes with extra syrup too?

And if God and I spent the day together, what exactly would we do?

Would God feel what I feel? Would He see what I see?

Would He like to explore and see the world with me?

The Christian worship song “I Can Only Imagine” touched countless lives with its glorious representation of being in the presence of God, and this beautifully illustrated board book invites you and your little ones to imagine those same wonders. Share the joy of a personal relationship with the Lord with your family today through the creative, faith-filled book I Can Only Imagine for Little Ones.

My Review:

With the popularity of the I Can Only Imagine song which led to a movie and book (You can see my review HERE), it’s no surprise that a picture book for children has been added. I can Only Imagine for Little Ones is a larger board book at just under 8×8. It’s well constructed to stand up against infant and toddler page-turning. The book has adorable, stunning pictures to go along with the story, and the story itself is engaging and thought-provoking for kids. It asks the questions kids are more likely to ask like “Does God like to play ball?” or “Does God have a pet?” There are ideas that we as adults may have grown out of, but this story engages kid’s imaginations in a fun, interactive way. It gets them to consider heaven and what it would be like to see God face-to-face. It considers “knowing God” in a way that they can actually understand and think about. This was a fun read and one that I would consider a great addition to a home, church, nursery, or public library.

Tiny Tot Review:

I read this book with my favorite little book enthusiast, 3-year-old Addy. She absolutely loves story time and interacting with what she is read. She really enjoyed this book and loved the pictures. She had a bit of difficulty in imagining some of the ideas the book shared. She said she wasn’t sure what God liked to do because she didn’t know what he had (balls, books, pets, etc). She was pretty sold on the idea of possibly having ice cream before lunch though. The book was able to hold her attention well and she was highly engaged throughout the story. She gives the story two thumbs up.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book through BookLook. I was not required to give a positive review. Thoughts and opinions expressed are mine (and Addy’s) alone.

  1. Great review Becca. I try to read a lot of books to my grandchildren. My grandson liked this one, but had the same issue not knowing what God would like to do.

    • That’s great 🙂 I read them to my niece and nephew a lot and one of our neighbor girls. I like having kids books with a biblical message and stories that point littles to God 🙂
