Item description for God Believes in You by Holly Bea & Kim Howard...
Overview When Holly's bull mastiff, Buddy, is afraid, embarrassed, or worried, he feels better when he remembers God is watching over him.
Holly Bea's beloved bullmastiff, Buddy, is having a bad day. Left alone to guard the house, he is taunted by the neighborhood cats, who know that he can't touch them. Buddy is worried—will Holly be back soon, or is she gone for the day, or even forever? Much to Buddy's relief, Holly returns. They go to the park, but Buddy's fun is cut short by a pack of hostile squirrels and a team of Dalmatian firedogs who challenge his self-esteem. Will this day ever end? Buddy's day is a metaphor for the doubts and anxieties children face, and a soothing reminder that God will always be there for them.

when bad days never end! Oct 25, 2004
The author's beloved bullmastiff, Buddy, is having a bad day. Left alone to guard the house, he is taunted by the neighborhood cats, who know he can't touch them. Will this day ever end?
Buddy's day is a metaphor for the doubts & anxieties all children face, especially from their peers. GOD BELIEVES IN YOU is a soothing reminder for child & adult alike, that God will always be there, if you give Him a chance.
Rebeccasreads highly recommends GOD BELIEVES IN YOU which is charmingly written in verses, & once again Holly Bea has teamed up with the superb illustrator Kim Howard, who obviously adores Buddy too.
A Must-Have For Your Library Aug 27, 2004
At first, I thought this was just another overly-sweet rhyming Pollyana-ish sort of picture book. I was wrong! The repetition of the title line makes for a powerful message, but the events in Buddy's day are what holds the reader's attention. It is a gently potent reminder for all ages, and the artwork is gorgeous.
