This poetic book illustrates how even the tiniest things that we might take for granted, like the “jewels on the insect’s back,” are part of God’s great plan. A comforting, gentle introduction to the concept of God, it is one of the most beautifully written and illustrated books on the Golden list.
From “God is Good”, through to “God is Love”, this small book attempts to introduce your child to the higher power you, presumably, believe in and wish to share. It explains, in a basic sense, who and what God is, in terms simple enough for young children.
While religious parents will enjoy the idea of sharing this little gem with their children, you should know that if you’re a strict believer in the bible and the “created in seven days” idea, this book may contradict your beliefs with “Think of the snow-capped mountains. Those peaks were crumbling away with age before the first people lived on earth.” For those whose religious beliefs are more open, this really is a nice book that’s pretty basic. The text is too long for most of the intended audience of most board books (toddlers) and might be more appropriate for older kids who wouldn’t want to be caught with a “baby book”.
