Nondenominational, Nonsectarian, Multicultural
From award-winning author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso comes a new story to delight children and adults of all faiths and backgrounds.
This is the magical, mythical tale of a poor village at the foot of a hilla topsy-turvy town with no roads and no windows, where the people sneeze through tall tangled weeds and trip over rocks as big as watermelons. Surely God would help them, they decide … but how can God be found, and where should they look? They soon find that the answer is much nearer than they thought.
This story teaches that God can be found where we are: within all of us and the relationships between us.
