A charming nighttime reminder that God is always present in our lives.
This gentle bedtime story guides children through the steps God might take each night to tuck the world into bed. From dimming the lights with the colors of the sunset, to the hushed lullaby of evening’s breeze in the leaves, to God’s gentle nod for the flowers to slip into slumber, it engages children in the wider, waking world by showing the commonality all things share as God’s creation. It then eases nighttime anxiety with soothing reassurance of God’s continued blessing and watchfulness as we sleep.
Not a book to be read and then relegated to the book shelf, this bedtime companion will likely become a child’s nighttime ritual. The simple yet profound text, accompanied by gorgeous, colorful photographs, captures the experiences common to children of all faiths and backgrounds as they begin to understand the many ways God is there for us. Filled with wisdom and love, Does God Ever Sleep? delights the senses and expands the ways we think about God and God’s presence in our lives.
