Highly recommended Christian children's book Mar 12, 2003
It is rare that I review a book that I believe should be in every library, this is one of those very few books that meet the criteria for such a recommendation. This book should be in every Christian church library and on the shelves of any Christian with young children.
"God Is With You: That Is All You Need" is a wonderful book detailing various scenarios where children might be afraid and supplying just the right amount of scripturally based advice. The book deals effectively with situations like when you feel lonely, when you are afraid, when things go wrong and you want to give up, when you have a hurt that won't go away, when people lie about you, when you feel understood, when you are concerned about the future, when you are asked to do something very difficult for you, and when your best friend moves away. These are some of the most common and difficult problems of children and the teachings of this book can help them move through those difficult times. The book ends with a very basic version of the plan of salvation and invites the child to ask Jesus into their life.
In addition to a wonderful story, "God Is With You" is beautifully illustrated by Corbert Gauthier. The detailed and brilliant use of color creates a visual feast that is sure to hold a child's attention even with the rather long readings on some of the pages. I will be sure to look for the name Corbert Gauthier as illustrator on other children's books when considering items for review.
In summary, this is one of the most highly recommended children's books that I have ever reviewed.
