Overview

Rediscover the world through the eyes of a child
Author Donna Vander Griend offers this joy-producing book featuring more than forty surprising stories that uncover biblical truths—and all from the mouths of grandbabes. Parents and grandparents alike will be inspired, refreshed, and encouraged to view the world through the children in their lives.

“Donna Vander Griend expertly discerns the scriptural allusions, the artless gospel-echoing remarks in the talk of her nine grandchildren, and then passes them on to us in brief parable-stories. As we read her stories and listen through her attentive grandparent ears, we acquire a mind-set that hears—really hears—the innocence and purity of revealed gospel truth that comes out of the mouths of babes and grandbabes. Through the unstudied, spontaneous language of our grandchildren, we can eavesdrop on the whispers of the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives. . . . We treasure these stories.” —Eugene and Jan Peterson Tyndale House Publishers

    Witty and Wise

    Donna Vander Griend's book is touching, thoughtful, and wise. She's a master of the telling detail, of setting up seemingly incoherent scenes, then tying them together with a sentence or two at the end. The stories are unpredictable, but they're not whimsical - they have each been carefully constructed with solid insights in mind. This book is best read not all at once, but over a month or two, reading one or two stories a night before going to bed. A real treat.
