Publishers Description How can any of us, but especially children, know God? Using the phrase from the Psalm as a jumping-off point -- "Taste and see the goodness of the Lord" -- this color-drenched book answers the question with a celebration of the senses. In poetic language, the author summons up richly evocative scenes that children are experiencing for the first time and that adults will recall with great pleasure -- cotton candy from a carnival, crickets at night, brownies fresh from the oven, the tickle of snowflakes on eyelashes. For each of the five senses, there are several scenes illustrated with lush images that immediately summon up the sensation.

How can anyone, but especially children, know God? Jun 27, 2000
This lovely and inspiring book helps children know God directly through their senses. Using taste, sight, touch, hearing, and smell, the author summons up everyday experiences that children are discovering for the first time (and that may make adults feel nostalgic with memory): the smell of brownies fresh from the oven, the taste of cotton canday at a carnival, the tickle of snowflakes on eyelashes, and so on. These experiences of ordinary goodness are glimpses into the nature of a God who is in all things because He made all things. The author concludes with a final "sixth sense" of the love of family as the best way to know God.
In addition to the poetic text, the book has richly evocative illustrations. The scanned-image here does not do it justice. The real colors are much more vibrant.
