Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An inquisitive girl searches high and low for the answers to some difficult questions in this pleasantly satisfying picture book. When Hope begins to wonder where God lives, she interrogates everyone she knows, hoping to figure out the mystery. Hope's mother says that "God lives in Heaven, way up in the sky," and Mr. Frog and Mrs. Fish agree that God lives in the stream and the nearby flowers and trees. But it is Grandma Rose who puts Hope's curiosity to rest with such explanations as, "And when God makes a person, a star or a wave,/ A part of God stays with whatever God made./ So God lives in the sky, in the meadow and stream-/ God lives everywhere, and God isn't a dream." The rhyming, occasionally sing-song text contains many comforting, child-friendly responses to questions about the presence of God in the world. Parents may also welcome this book as an additional resource when confronting the questions of children who are just beginning to encounter issues of faith and belief. Howard's folksy, stylized illustrations are awash in strong color and feature textured brush strokes. Her expressive human and animal figures keep the mood light, though they are occasionally clunky and misshapen. Ages 7-10. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2A number of books, largely from religious presses, offer explanations of God directed to small children. In this one, the concept is broadly introduced in a nongender-specific, nondenominational manner. The core message is that God is the good in all creation, always available to teach, strengthen, and love all people if they ask for help in prayer. Hope, an African-American girl, is delighted by the beauty and goodness of the world around her and wants to know where God lives in it. First she asks her mother and her talking-animal friends. Each has a different opinion. Confused, Hope goes to Grandma Rose for clarification and returns home happy and satisfied. All this is expressed in a rather long, sweetly didactic rhyming text arranged on unusual, exuberant double-page spreads. Flat and primitive, the paintings are decorative, colorful, and vigorous, filled with flowers, animals, and pleasant people. Average in comparison to the many books on this topic.Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA

    Best book I have ever read for children

    This is one of the few books I would highly recommend for all young children as part of your explanation of God. Most enjoyable and wonderfully written. Author Holly Bea is to be commended for her understanding of her subject. Touché

    Wonderful Introduction to Religion

    What a great way to introduce the topic of religion to your child. This book is colorful and ecumenical. It explains clearly to children on a level they can understand that God and his love are everywhere. It is one of those books that you don't get tired of reading every night. Your child will love it.
