Overview A gentle way for young children to see, touch and explore the ways in which people "see" God. Board book. Illustrations.
Multicultural, Nondenominational, Nonsectarian
A simple way for young children to explore the ways we "see" God.
To young children, the world is full of things to see and touch. And by using those very examples, this enchanting book gently invites children to become aware of God s presence all around us.
Abridged from "Because Nothing Looks Like God" by Lawrence and Karen Kushner, "What Does God Look Like?" has been specially adapted to board book format to delight and inspire younger readers.
Much has been written about the importance of reading simple, beautiful books to babies and preschoolers to stimulate brain development. But perhaps even more important, what you read begins to shape your child s world, and creates the images that will remain with him or her throughout life. We read books to our children about letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and safety, but do we give their minds the early food they need to think about life s bigger questions?
As spiritual development experts now tell us, each child develops an image of God by age 5, with or without religious instruction. What Does God Look Like? takes you and your child on an imaginative journey designed to help you open not only your child s mind, but your child s heart and soul as well.

Gentle Theology with no Syrup Added Dec 19, 2006
Finally, a children's book about God that won't give anyone a headache or a cavity. This book is beautiful and poetic in its approach and pretty much unbiased, other than leaning towards monotheism somewhat. A good antidote to the religious imperialism and sickly sweet treacle being passed off as religious education these days.
