“What an exciting journey to write my first children’s book,” said Tomlin. “Being a dad makes this so special. It’s my prayer that Good Good Father helps children understand the amazing reality that we can call God our Father, that we are His beloved sons and daughters. It’s a simple, yet powerful story—one that has been kid-tested in my own home and a joy to watch my girls experience.”
Good Good Father is the story of a bear named Tucker whose life and townspeople are forever changed when they learn just how great the King's love is for them. Along the way, Tucker encounters a variety of curious, humorous animals who each know one great thing about the King. However, they each have limited views of what makes him good. This is a precious story that will leave children with a greater assurance that God truly is a good, good Father and they are loved by Him.

Cassandra's Review- A very faith based book that my family really enjoyed. It would make a great before bedtime read when you have a little more time at night. If you follow God and want your children to learn and grow with him in their life, this is a great addition to place in your home library.
