Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this wonderful, magical book, the president of the religion division of the American Association on Mental Retardation gives children with various emotional and mental challenges the opportunity to share their life stories, world, and spiritual perspective. As the children come alive, we reflect on the nature of human life and the function of the church in supporting disabled children; we are led to see beneath the surface not only of these children's lives but also of God's action in the world. This work is highly recommended for all libraries.
