When Gracie Jagla reached out to me to do a review of her book God the Father and the Best Day Ever, I was so excited. This book is a must-have for Easter and I can’t wait to share with you my review of God the Father and the Best Day Ever.
God the Father and the Best Day Ever is such a unique take on the Easter story. Instead of the traditional story of Easter where we read about Jesus’s death and resurrection here on Earth, we’re reading about God the Father’s perspective in heaven. It shows how even with the fall of Adam and Eve, God has always had a plan and loves us so much. The book is also written in an appealing rhyme that makes reading it so fun.

MY THOUGHTS ON GOD THE FATHER AND THE BEST DAY EVER
When I first heard the plot, my initial reaction was “Wow, that is such an interesting story! I never thought about that.” and to be honest, didn’t know what to think about it. Now since reading it, I really liked it. I love the fun rhyme to it which makes it so engaging and memorable.
A huge plus is the book is hardcover. Paperback books tend to easily get destroyed by my toddlers so I appreciate that it is hardback. Jacob Popcak’s illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. The pictures are vibrant and attractive which really captivated my kids. I am so happy that I was able to give God the Father and the Best Day Ever a review. It definitely did not disappoint and this will be added to our family’s list of Easter book classics. I highly recommend this book for Easter for your family.
