Reviews - What do customers think about God Created?
A beautiful book - appropriate for many faiths. Jun 14, 2005
I am Catholic, my husband is Jewish. We were asked to be the God parents of a baby who is Hindu and Episcopal. What to get her? I found this book and it is wonderful and beautiful and spiritual. None of that "God is a white man sitting on a cloud watching you like Santa". It is simple and respectful of all of nature and all walks of life. There were 3 copies in my book store - I bought all 3 so I could have one for my kids and one for another Baptism. I am going to make this my traditional baptism gift - and I am sure it is good for first communions too.
Exquisite. A Gem. Mar 30, 2005
Luminous, flowing illustrations form the bedrock for this simple and lovely story. God Created takes readers on a delightful journey through the stages of creation. "In the beginning ... Silence. Spirit." What transpires in this book is a feeling of connectedness, between Creator and created, and among all the life forms that inhabit our planet. God created it all. Even "tears and laughter, smiles, frowns, winces, hugs and friendships, too," says author Bozzuti-Jones. He makes the case that nothing is a mistake - that all we can "hear, taste, touch, see, be, or imagine" comes from God. The common refrain is: "and so much more." More than we could ever imagine, or see, or touch. And so ours is a world of infinite possibilities. What an invaluable lesson for children! The author's faith is reflected, simply, reverently, and beautifully, throughout the book.
Jui Ishida's montage-style illustrations reinforce this message: there's no beginning or end to any of them; the eye is drawn seamlessly from image to image. Page after page, the story unfolds. This author isn't in a hurry to tell his story. It's timeless and eternal. The feeling one gets from it is of promise and of peace.
A book to treasure...! Sep 7, 2004
God Created is perfect for Baby's first book as well as on through the grade-school years. It is a thoughtfully-written introduction to the wonders of God as witnessed through all of creation. As a former school-teacher and babysitter...I can see the value of this book as a teaching tool that exceeds this objective too. The superb animations are colorful and detailed. Many hours can be spent teaching baby to identify people...young and old, animals...large and small, and the universe...earth and beyond. There is lots of see-and-say potential as well as letter/sight-word recognition when they get to that stage. I loved that this book implies the connections and relationships of all things through time...that which was...that which is...and that which will be. As the child grows and learns to read it for themselves...the book will yield more and more to them...and they will treasure it! :-)
The profound simplicity of this book is tremendously enhanced by the beautiful illustrations. A must have. This is my gift book to all my friends this year.
It's Finally Here! Nov 7, 2003
This is the best children's book I've read. A very spiritual and powerfully religious retelling (the only retelling) of the Creation story that is age appropriate for small children (ages 2+). It truly conveys the emmense love of God for His creation, this and "so much more, so much more." A book to be read by and for children of all ages from 2 - 100. A wonderful gift!
