Overview

A Guide for Jewish and Christian Educators and Parents

Children speak about God in ways that are different from adults. They ask many questions about God, questions that can be startlingly direct. Oftentimes adults—parents, grandparents, and teachers—feel uncomfortable answering them.

Through fantasy, involvement, and imagination, Sandy Sasso and Annette Compton invite children of all faiths and backgrounds to encounter God openly through moments in their own lives—and help the adults who love them to be a part of that encounter. This book provides a gift of images that nurtures and encourages children in making meaning of their world.

With over 100,000 copies in print, God’s Paintbrush remains one of the most popular spiritual books for children of all faiths, all backgrounds. This special anniversary edition includes new ideas for interaction between adults and children, and an important new message from the author.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A meaty new introduction from author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso distinguishes God's Paintbrush: 10th Anniversary Edition, illus. by Annette Compton. Suggesting ways that parents can use the interactive, interfaith title, the author stresses that, when dealing with spiritual matters, questions can be more enticing to children than answers. Publishers take note: this title, Sasso's first to be published, currently has more than 100,000 copies in print-and was turned down by 23 houses. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
