Item description for God, Can You Hear Me? by Justine Simmons & Robert Papp...

The co-star of MTV's Run's House evaluates the positive role of prayer in a child's life, drawing on twelve areas of concern typically shared by today's young people to counsel parents on how to encourage children to turn to God for help with their problems. 60,000 first printing.

Publishers Description

"More than ever, this generation of kids needs a book like this, one that will provide them with spiritual guidance at a young age and help them establish their own relationship with a loving, caring God." --Rev Run

Justine Simmons is a costar in the hit MTV show Run's House and the wife of Joseph Simmons, an ordained minister and one of the founding pioneers of the classic rap group Run DMC.

With inspirational dialogue complemented by warm, luminous paintings, Justine Simmons offers a window into the hearts of today's children in a beautiful keepsake volume that families will treasure from one generation to the next.

From Publishers Weekly
Simmons, wife of Reverend Run (a founder of musical group Run DMC) and costar of the Simmons family's reality series on MTV, Run's House, has penned a Q&A-style picture book to offer children a loose template for dealing with issues about which they might pray or talk to God. On alternating pages, a child voices a concern and Simmons serves up a reassuring, if sometimes-pat-sounding, answer, as if it were coming from God. A sample exchange reads: "Mommy and Daddy argue all the time. Do they still love each other?/ God, can you hear me?/ Mommy and Daddy may argue, but they still love each other. And they love you, too." Papp's crisply realistic oil paintings-many of them look like artistically manipulated photographs-feature a multicultural cast of kids and families in a variety of backdrops from beach to playground to city streets. This wide-ranging volume has potential as a starting point for family sharing as well as inspiration for young readers who may be looking for guidance or for ways to begin a spiritual dialogue. Ages 4-9. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

God, Can You Hear Me?  Aug 29, 2008
This book is great my 9 year old daughter loves it and she loves reading it to her 3 year old sister who also loves the book. This is a must have for any family.
Good Read  Aug 18, 2008
My brother and I got GOD CAN YOU HEAR ME and I was happy to read it. It's a good book, with very good lessons about believing in God, praying and dealing with things.

Thank you!  Aug 11, 2008
This book gave me a whole new respect for Justine Simmons and the role she plays in what seems to be a very healthy family. It was so wonderful to me to find a book that not only encompasses almost every form of analternative family, but for sending the message that each child's situation and/or concerns are "normal" too! Bravo....I actually have this book on display in the room I have prepared for my adoptive son/daughter coming soon! Thank you Justine!
Had to buy this after watching Run's House  Apr 2, 2008
This book was a must for me, and I bought one as a gift for my best friend, too, after hearing Justine Simmon's had written a book. I love the show about her family, Run's House, on MTV. They are such a sweet, loving family. Parents who are faithful to God and VERY intertwined into their children's lives, as they SHOULD be. They are so inspiring as parents, I had to read what Justine would have to write to children. It's a sweet little book. Nothing out of this world, very easy-to-understand questions kids would have for God. My girls live in such a sheltered world - reading about some kids who are less fortunate, who may live in a one-parent household or other hardships they have to overcome, it was interesting to see my kids gain that perspective from a book. Also, super bonus that a few of the illustrations have Diggy or Russy (can't remember which one - but Justine's sons) in them!
Great book for children  Oct 2, 2007
This book is great. The message is one that children need to hear today. My daughter loves the book.
