A comforting, gentle introduction to the concept of God, it is one of the most beautifully written and illustrated books on the Golden list.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
God is great, God is good, God is love, and God is with us even when we are sorry or sad, are the themes carried out by the lovely free verse of the text and watercolor illustrations. The well-recognized artistic style of Eloise Wilkin enamors adults and children alike. The pictures of a chubby faced child examining a grasshopper, of a brown-skinned child wearing a red tam and holding flowers, and of a boy with his nose pressed against a robin's breast remind the reader of the wonders of childhood. A boy hugged by his mother and a girl hugging her father portray the essence of a secure childhood. The book embodies a sense of peace found in an earlier time. This reissue of a children's classic will aid Sunday school teachers and parents to share the love and hope in this book with another generation. Every child's library needs a copy. 1984 (orig. 1956), Golden Books/Random House, and Ages 2 to 5.
