“He Loves Us All Three Dots” is the second in a series of children’s picture books that highlights the infinity of love. In the first book, “I Love You Three Dots” a mother is challenged by her son to explain the meaning behind the three dots that followed the numbers in his counting book. “It means they go on forever,” she told him. In this sequel, the author uses the infinity of the three dots to explain God’s love for us all.
“It truly happened, word for word,” said author Mona Haynes. “I was working with my son Bobby, who was four at the time, and we were reading his counting book. He asked about the three dots and I told him that it means the numbers go on forever. That night he told me that he loved me three dots. I was so touched his interpretation that I was inspired to write a poem. Later, that poem turned into a book.”
The sequel, “He Loves Us All Three Dots” recaps the initial conversation but continues further with the mother using the definition of the three dots to explain how infinite God’s love is for all of us.
“I hope that parents and children will read this book and know that they are not alone, that God loves them, without condition, and will love them no matter what,” said Haynes. “For parents of older children, I hope they will take the conversation one step further and read the referenced scripture mentioned throughout the book. Each scripture is another example of God’s abiding love.”
Although Bobby and the rest of her children are grown and raising their own families, Haynes continues to share the “three dot” story with her grandchildren and the children she cares for in her day care facility.
Both of these stories are simple and straightforward. The message of love between a parent and child and the love our Heavenly Father has for all of us is important and one which Mona has beautifully captured for families to share.
Haynes has been writing poetry for years and both books are written in rhyme and beautifully illustrated by Maryann Held. Although these are her first published children’s books, she is currently working on another book which will continue the “three dot” theme. “He Loves Us All Three Dots” and “I Love You Three Dots” are available at Amazon in paperback and e-book formats.
