God's Love - Adapted and Interactive Books for Special Needs Ministry

If you follow me on Instagram, you know one of my new adventures is leading the special needs ministry at my church! For the month of February, we are talking about God's love for us. Love can be such a tricky concept to grasp because it is so abstract but SUCH an important thing to learn about!
Not only is love a tricky, abstract concept to learn, love doesn't have one clear Bible story attached to it (it's not like we are learning about Noah), so I couldn't just pick a story for us to learn either. Instead, I will let the kids pick out any story in our picture Bible and am pretty sure it will somehow relate to God's love. But in addition to that, I've created a couple specific interactive books about God's love!
I hope these books are both fun to read and make this abstract concept a little easier to understand. One of the books is based on a couple children's songs and it more of a "fun" book. All of the pages read "God's love is ____er than the ______." And the last page reads "God loves you and me."

The second book goes more into detail about how God loves us, such as sending his son to the world, Jesus dying on the cross for our sins, and how God wants us to love others as well.

The pages are full sized, but I decided to print mine two to a page in order to make it a little smaller. I  then laminated, hole punched and added book rings to put it together. Then I added velcro to each page to attach the small pictures so that the kids can match each picture to the page as they read.

I really hope these books will help my Sunday School kiddos understand how real and wonderful God's love for them is! Let me know if you will be able to use these as well!

Do you have any ideas or suggestions on teaching tricky abstract concepts like this to our special needs kiddos?
