This book is hard cover and for young readers. The book consist of Bible Stories, Devotionals, and prayers about the Names of God. The book goes from Genesis to Revelations, The beginning and The End. There are 40 sections in the book and each one starts with a Name of God, examples: Creator, I AM, The Lord My Rock, Jehova and much more. Then short story from the bible, discussion question, prayer and a little box with bible verse to learn more of the story and how it continues. The book is strong and the cover is very sturdy, with a nice ribbon bookmark. The pages are very nicely illustrated, colorful and heavy coated for many days of page turning.
I would recommend this to young ones and even those that want to learn about the bible and the Names of God. The book is very easy to read and takes a few minutes a day. It would be a great gift to give a child and read with them daily. It would also be good for children's classes at church as a teaching tool. I was very impressed and found this book to very good quality.

More from Diane
You can often guess someone’s age by considering their name. Diane, for example, was popular in the 1950s, so . . . that tells you something about me.
But God’s personal name? Well, it’s ageless. Just like Him.
When Moses met God at the burning bush and received the task of leading the Israelites out of Egypt, he wasn’t exactly thrilled at first. He peppered God with questions, including, “When I tell the people that I met you here and you gave me this assignment, they’re going to want to know your name. What should I tell them?”
The Israelites had just about forgotten who the God of their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob was.
But God hadn’t forgotten them. Not at all. God told Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. . . . Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you’” (Exodus 3:14).
I AM WHO I AM. I always have been. I will always be. I will never change.
Choosing a book title is rarely easy, and choosing a title for this book about the names of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit took a long time. I couldn’t be more grateful to the Tommy Nelson publishing team who developed and settled on the title I AM: 40 Reasons to Trust God.
My prayer for every child who reads this book and every family that goes through the book together, and for myself: May we all grow mightily in our understanding of who God is and our relationship with Him! As Psalm 9:10 says, “Those who know your name put their trust in you.”
To celebrate her tour, Diane is giving away the grand prize package of signed copies of all three I AM books!!
