Publishers Description What is God like?
Mixing sparks of curiosity and spiritual imagination, this wondrous book lights children's creativity and shows how God is with us every day, in every way.
In this, their first collaborative book, husband-and-wife team Lawrence and Karen Kushner combine their expertise to help introduce children to the possibilities of spiritual life. Real-life examples of happiness and sadness -- from goodnight stories, to the hope and fear felt the first time at bat, to the closing moments of someone's life -- invite parents and children to explore, together, the questions we all have about God, no matter what our age.
Three poetic spiritual stories will delight children of all ages: -- "Where Is God?" -- "What Does God Look Like?" -- "How Does God Make Things Happen?"

A children's theology book to cherish Dec 29, 2007
Introduced to this book a few years ago by a friend's rabbi during a children's sabbath celebration, my husband and I were quite impressed. The art is so inviting to look at. But more importantly, the content is worth sharing with children you want to share a positive image of faith with very early on -- whether they are children who share your own religion or are in another religion that you respect.
We are Christian and have now shared this lovely book with children in our congregation, children in other Christian denominations (both Catholic and Protestant) and children being raised with Jewish traditions. We hope it will be a blessing to many -- adults and children -- as it has been to us.
Doesn't Talk Down to Your Kids Dec 4, 2000
I've looked many years for a book that is spiritual, but doesn't talk down to kids, to share with my many grandchildren. There is another: "God's Paintbrush" but we have read it so many times that I needed something new. This is it! A wonderful, delightful exploration of who God is, and what God does in the world through us. Cuddle up to your grandchildren with this one.
