These questions, and many more, are answered matter-of-factly during a conversation that takes place mostly between a brother and a sister. Their father left on a business trip. Before he left, he told his children, “…even when I’m not here, God is always with you.” This leads to a discussion between the two siblings about all the things they have learned about God from their parents: that He made the animals, that He is everywhere all the time, that He knows when we’ve done something wrong, and that God wants us to obey His rules.
The conversations are realistic and are complimented by Bible verses at the bottom of each two-page spread that relates to each aspect of God’s nature. For instance, when the children talk about obeying God’s rules, the Bible verse cited is Exodus 15:26: “I am the Lord your God. Listen carefully to my voice. Do what is right in my eyes. Pay attention to my commands. Obey all of my rules.”
At the end of the book is a page titled, “Teaching Your Child About God,” offering ways to share your faith with your children.
The watercolor illustrations by Pamela Querin are beautiful, vibrant, and realistic.
