Overview

Multicultural, Nondenominational, Nonsectarian

This simple, beautiful book will help you and your child explore spirituality together for the first time.

Based on the award-winning picture book In God's Name.

Much has been written about the importance of reading simple, beautiful books to babies and preschoolers to stimulate brain development. But perhaps even more important, what you read begins to shape your child's world, and creates the images that will remain with him or her throughout life. We read books to our children about letters, numbers, shapes, colors and safety, but do we give their minds the early food they need to think about life's bigger questions?

As spiritual development experts now tell us, each child develops an image of God by age 5, with or without religious instruction. What is God's Name? takes you and your child on an imaginative journey designed to help you open not only your child's mind, but your child's heart and soul as well.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The animals and other living things were given names after God created the world but, according to Sasso, no one knew the name for God. Each created his or her name and unfortunately each felt that this name for God was the best. One day all of the people came together and realized that all the names were good and spontaneously they spoke the same name. That made God very happy. A real message of tolerance and acceptance--behaviors that should be the foundation of any religious beliefs. 1999, Skylight Paths,

    Simple yet profound

    This book is a must have! Great for very young children, it introduces deep concepts such as love, tolerance, peace, and inclusiveness. 'What is God's Name?' has simple pictures and simple words but is packed with a terrific message, namely that God loves all of us. What a perfect starting place for parents when teaching their children spiritual lessons.
