From Zonderkidz website: "This charming board book expresses the five purposes of the bestselling The Purpose-Driven Life for little ones ages 4 and under."
So, I have never read The Purpose-Driven Life, but looked up the five purposes, just so you have it handy
Worship: Love the Lord your God with all your heart
Ministry: Love your neighbor as yourself
Mission: Go and make discciples
Fellowship: Baptizing them
Discipleship:Teaching them to obey
I am not sure that the pages of the book perfectly follow these purposes (I didn't see worship, for example), but if you love The Purpose-Driven Life, this may be a huge bonus for you.
That aside, this is a sweetly illustrated book for little ones. It is a nice board book, which is sturdy enough for little ones to "read" over and over again. I still have board books from when my children were little and MOST of them survived all five children and I am HOPING with be loved by any future grandbabies too! The story is short, written in a rhyme style that children LOVE and remember...just TRY reading it wrong and see what your little ones say, once they are familiar with the story. The book is very colorful! I am sure that little ones would love it!
