Book Review: I Wonder What I Can Give God

I Wonder What I Can Give God (I Wonder Series)I Wonder What I Can Give God by Mona Gansberg Hodgson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a cute children's book about a boy named Jared who wants to give God a gift.  Well, that sounds do-able, right?  Not as easy as Jared first thinks because after all, does God need a hammer or a goldfish?  He keeps thinking "I wonder" about what he can give God.  But then he remembers what Papa Ray said last night at Bible study, and Jared knows what it is that God wants, and it's something Jared can give Him. 

I liked this book because it was a cute story that very much incorporates the Christian faith without being corny or too cutesy.  It is almost like a child could have thought this through, but of course, the author is an adult.  It's a charming book.

The only thing I disliked about the book was there was a connect-the-dot in the back.  If it was an activity book, I wouldn't have minded, but considering it is a hardcover book, to me it's not something that should be written in, even if there is a connect the dot in it.  This is a lovely book and I look forward to reading it to my "niece" and "nephews" when I visit them.

I received a copy of this book from the author from a giveaway on her facebook page:  Mona Hodgson Author Page .  The opinions are mine.

  1. Hi Jenn,
    Thanks so much for receiving the book. There are six books in my I Wonder series and they are available at a discounted price on my Book Order Form at I loved your comment about the book read like it could've been written by a child. That's what I love about writing children's books--gives me permission to think and be child-like.
