" An beautifully illustrated allegory calling people to stop polluting Mother Earth and pick up stewardship of our planet. " said.

" Beautiful paintings accompany thoughtful story that asks the reader (or listener) to seek out the feminine divine within themselves. A very pretty and thought-provoking little book. " said.

" This is a GREAT book for little girls (and boys)! It is such an affirming account of sacred femininity that is told through a sweet story between the author and her daughter, and through quotes from a diverse grouping of authors and world religious leaders. BEAUTIFUL artwork throughout as well! Highly recommended for parents looking to teach daughters that being a girl is an awesome thing to be! " said.

" This was a cute book, but I'm unsure how it would translate to kids who were brought up with the divine feminine around them. For example kids in pagan or Hindu families.Either way it's quite cute and would be nice for kids who feel left out of spirituality because of how gendered it is in mainstream Abrahamic religions, " said.

"
This a wonderful book. I have been reading, studying and practicing the ways of the Goddess for over thirty five years. Never have I found the essence of Goddess teachings distilled into such wisdom. Each page is filled with teachings that are both profound and accessible. The wonderful artwork captures the the spirit and imagination of the writing. Don't let the size fool you. There is so much to gained from this book. While this would be excellent for girls wanting to find the Divine that is like them, It is equally qualified for boys, women and men just seeking to know about the Goddess. And it has great value for those of us that want a great meditation tool to feel surrounded by Her arms.

"The Girl God by Trista Henderson and illustrated by Elisabeth Slettnes is an amazing book. The illustrations are beautiful. The story itself had me glued to the pages. It was of a young girl and her mothers conversations over the aspect of god/goddess. This book should be read by all children and adults. It is a beautiful story with many great quotes from others. I really enjoyed reading this book and plan to share it with my daughter and many others! It is a must read!
Received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

"Oh, wow. I picked this small but mighty book up for free today from Amazon. I was intrigued by the picture on the front cover and the title. I thought I was getting a children's book. I believe this is an 'everybody' book.

The story was from a mother to her daughter. A sweet simple story. But the wisdom of the story runs deeply. Then there are the quotations throughout; each capturing a piece of my soul. All the illustrations were engaging. I wish I bought this in tree form as I would like to spend more time with the book and with the pictures. At least I can go back to this one in my 'cloud'.

Because this was so wonderful I went to find other books by Trista Hendren. Yay! The were free with Kindle Unlimited!

"I found this treasure in The Crossroads store on Jay St. in Schenectady but perhaps it's on Amazon too? It's a book that I'll keep, pillowed by other awesome books on women's spirituality.

It's a children's book that ADULTS should read and I wanted to own. The slender paperback (maybe 9" x 11"?) is packed with beautiful contemporary art created by the illustrator. And the quotes, in small print below the art, are grown-up quotes from people like Rumi, Gandhi, Sojourner Truth, Judy Chicago, Starhawk, Sue Monk Kidd, bell hooks, Buddhist tradition and lots more. I love the quote on the title page, by Gloria Steinem: "God may be in the details, but the goddess is in the questions. Once we begin to ask them, there's no turning back."

The girl/child-focused story appears in larger print, above the colorful artwork.

Buy it and give it to a girl/woman of almost any age. Or hold on to it for yourself, for its gorgeous illustrations, for empowerment.
