" I had high hopes for this book, but found it long, the text being a bit abstract even though trying to cut through the abstractions for children. The illustrations come closer to capturing the mystery. " said.

" Moving & beautifully written and illustrated, an absolutely perfect way to discuss the aspects of God with your little ones with plenty of depth to grow with. I can't get through this without choking up. A keep forever sort of treasure. " said.

" The pictures are lovely. The sentiments are nicely soft. It would probably be a very helpful book for a young child of the Christian tradition that was dealing with tough issues like family/friend death or other tragic events. I was really hopeful that this could be for both those of the Christian faith and Judaism but there's one really Jesus-y page that ruined that.Still a good add for a more diversified religion collection. " said.

"a well-written yet weighty children's book. The authors states that "it is appropriate for children while remaining faithful to the spirit of the biblical texts." Each set of two pages explores a concept of God. They are: breath, light, night, the word, silence, secret, our tears, joy, a spring, a rock, a stream, the root, wind, a path, fire, a fortress, a promise, strength, wisdom, deliverance, a covenant, a mystery, beauty, justice, holiness, peace, mercy, love, a shepherd, a king, a healer, a friend, a savior, majesty, smallness, a face, a parent, bread, life, and with us. The whimsical artwork contained within expresses each of these attributes perfectly." said.

" Not sure if children would understand the imagery, but it's a great book for adults. " said.

" This is a beautifully illustrated collection of thoughts from the Christian scriptures. It's written for kids - but I found it to be a great resource for centering and meditation / contemplation. " said.

" Each page begins with a "God is...." statement (example: God is light.)Then, there are several sentences expanding on that statement.It would be stronger if there were Bible references.It's good to expose kids to different images for God, so I think this is a good book that I would put in rotation with a Bible story book. " said.

" I had high hopes for this book, but found it long, the text being a bit abstract even though trying to cut through the abstractions for children. The illustrations come closer to capturing the mystery. " said.
