Christian worship leader and Grammy and Dove award-winning music artist Chris Tomlin has written songs that are sung by more people on a weekly basis than any other songwriter in the world. Now, his most recent single and K-LOVE’s Song of the Year, “Good Good Father” (written by Pat Barrett and Tony Brown), lends inspiration to the children’s picture book of the same name, available tomorrow, Oct. 4, 2016.
This delightful story is Tomlin’s first book for children, co-written with Pat Barrett, and will leave little ones with a greater understanding of who God is and of who they are because they are loved by Him. Good Good Father will be published in partnership between Tommy Nelson and Passion Publishing.
“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 knows 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.
