I received a free copy of this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.

official blurb
The Gift That I Can Give is a heartwarming story from Kathie Lee Gifford of how all children have something they can do today to make a difference. Whether it is being kind, giving a family member an extra-big squeeze, visiting someone who is sick, or cheering on a friend, this story will inspire children, leading them to want to read it again and again.

my blurb!
A children’s book about a girl trying to figure out how to use the gift that God has given her.  Perfect for kids age 2- 4 years old.

what i liked
Wow the illustrations in this book were amazing!  They were done by Julia Seal and I will quickly be looking her up to see what else she has illustrated.  They did a great job of keeping my littles attention (which is not always easy to do).
I also appreciated the cover value of this book- it features glitter (that does not come off on everything), and butterflies.  My kids saw it and immediately wanted to read it!
The biggest compliment that I can give this story is that as soon as I finished it for the first time, my two-year old asked me to read it again immediately!
I loved the message of this book, God gives you a gift that may not be extravagant but is a great and useful blessing.
I also appreciated seeing multicultural kids in this book!

what i didn't like
I love a rhyming book with good cadence. They are my favorite to read to my littles!  But there were a couple of pages that didn’t flow well for me.  This is a big downside for me because as the reader- it’s one of the biggest incentives for me to read it 1000+ times for my kiddos.

Overall the illustrations in this book and the message of the book were a big win for me.

while reading you should
Pray with your kids!
Listen to: Jesus Loves Me
Ask your kids what they want to do to show kindness and use God’s gift!
