Magical Feb 3, 2006
My 16 year old daughter and I came across this while in a doctor's waiting room. She read it to me, at first as kind of a joke ie., "read me this story, honey" but what happened then was magical. We were both touched by the beautiful, lyrical nature of the story as she read it. I got a little choked up. When she finished she announced, wonderingly "I love it". It *is* a lovely little book and so I ordered it for my daughter to read to her little cousins. I suspect she'll read it for herself now and then. Maybe I will too. It's like curling up with a blankie and a warm cup of milk; you feel happy and warm. And even when you're 16 .. or 48, that's a nice thing, now and then.
A Rare Find Dec 11, 2003
It is rare to find a children's book about God that let's children know that God is always present: everywhere they go, in everything they see, touch, hear, & do, and in everyone they love. In short, God's creations are all around them, & in THEIR world.
This story dipicts a child who is curious about what God looks like, if He is strong, what things He likes, etc. In this book, the child's questions are answered by showing the child some of God's creations. These are simple, yet miraculous creations that are present in our children's everyday lives, and easy for them to relate to.
This book is heartwarming and gentle. It also has outstanding illustrations of people of different ages and colors.
Nice illustrations, good idea, but kids were not interested. Dec 8, 2001
While the sentiment of this book is sweet, it's really not the message that I wanted to give to my children about God. Fortunately they were completely uninterested after the first reading at ages 6 and 8. The message is seems to be God is in all things although it only focused on God being present during positive things in life.
A very good book! Aug 12, 1998
I bought the book to read to my 6yo daughter. We have earth-based spiritual beliefs and this book's presentation of God was very compatible with those beliefs. The illustrations are beautiful!
