Overview

Sammy Experiences God is a classically illustrated children's book inspired by the Experiencing God teachings of Henry Blackaby. It will help kids begin to understand that God is not far off or hiding from them, and that they can experience his love and involvement in their lives as they follow him.

One evening when little Sammy announces after his bedtime prayers that he is going to look for God, his parents soon enough understand that the boy literally means what he said. When events like a night of camping under the stars and a hike up a small mountain don't bring Sammy what he's looking for, mom and dad try to explain that God is everywhere. But discouragement and a lack of understanding follow.

One day Grandpa Henry figures out what everyone else is missing. Sammy wants to have an encounter with God like the ones he has read about in the Bible -- like Abraham under the stars and Moses at the burning bush after climbing a mountain. Like Jacob, like Elijah, like the disciples.

Grandpa tells Sammy of another Sammy from the Bible (Samuel at age 12), reaching the child with a simple explanation of how we can all experience God's love, wisdom, and help right in the middle of everyday life.

This is a precious children's book about helping our children understand what it is to have God in their life. Little Sammy loves the stories of the Bible and how the people of the Bible have personal experiences with God. He decides he wants to have a personal experience of his own so, remembering the stories he's heard his dad read to him, he goes on several adventures to try and have a one-on-one with God. There are "Looking for God" boxes that highlight something important we should discuss with our child. Plus there are also different layers of learning throughout the book from putting together the different colored text to get a special message, to finding and counting all the frogs in the book (there are A LOT of frogs!) I really liked this about the book because it wasn't just about reading the book. I'm really into illustrations and the illustrations in this book are wonderful! They are detailed and colorful and really will capture your child's attention. A very touching part of the book to me was that the grandfather's name is Henry in the book. I thought this was wonderful since Henry Blackaby is the author of the wonderful Bible study called "Experiencing God" from which this book is based. The illustration even looks somewhat like Henry! This is a wonderful book! It will definitely become one of your child's favorite books. It will help them to understand what it is to have a personal relationship with God while enjoying an amazing story and beautiful illustrations! *This book was provided to me for my honest review by Shelton Interactive
