I Couldn’t Love You More

Jason Ingram and Matt Hammitt, illus. by Polona Lovsin. Tyndale, $15.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4143-6739-2
Ingram and Hammitt, the former a songwriter and the latter lead vocalist for the Christian rock band Sanctus Real, team with Lovsin (What’s That Noise, Little Mouse?) to create a picture book from the lyrics to one of their songs. The message is that, as strong as a parent’s love is for his child, Jesus’ love is even stronger. Each two-page spread contains one of Lovsin’s colorful paintings of cuddly animal babies frolicking in nature as the seasons turn and one short stanza from the song. The joyful expressions on the animals’ faces dovetail nicely with the loving lyrics. A portion of the proceeds from the book and album support the Whole Hearts Foundation, a nonprofit founded by the Hammitts to help children with congenital heart defects. Ages 3–8. (Mar.)
