;This poetic book illustrates how even the tiniest things that we might take for granted, like the "jewels on the insect's back," are part of God's great plan. A comforting, gentle introduction to the concept of God, it is one of the most beautifully written and illustrated books on the Golden list.

Love the simplicity of the story for children and the beautiful artwork.
I have made sure each of my children and grandchildren have a copy of their own.
Always loved the Golden Books as a child and shared this one with my children... Wanted to give my grandson a copy for his library and was so happy that B&N had a copy...
ISBN 0307203123 ¿ I¿m a huge fan of Golden Books, and not a fan at all of religion, so I was curious to see how the two would go together. I¿m surprised to say they work together nicely here. Sturdy board book pages are nice and the medium size of the book is good for small hands. The illustrations by Eloise Wilkin are mostly pleasant, kind of boring, although some are stand-out excellent. From ¿God is Good¿, through to ¿God is Love¿, this small book attempts to introduce your child to the higher power you, presumably, believe in and wish to share. It explains, in a basic sense, who and what God is, in terms simple enough for young children. While religious parents will enjoy the idea of sharing this little gem with their children, you should know that if you¿re a strict believer in the bible and the ¿created in seven days¿ idea, this book may contradict your beliefs with ¿Think of the snow-capped mountains. Those peaks were crumbling away with age before the first people lived on earth.¿ For those whose religious beliefs are more open, this really is a nice book that¿s pretty basic. The text is too long for most of the intended audience of most board books (toddlers) and might be more appropriate for older kids who wouldn¿t want to be caught with a ¿baby book¿. - AnnaLovesBooks
'My Little Book About God' was a book my parent's read to me, and now I can read it to my child. They have added some pages to make it 'politically correct' and the pages are easily picked out due to the mismatched color of the illustrations. The message is wonderful and moving. It will never go out of style! Very basic introduction to God and His presence, nothing specific. We read it over and over, and each time I cry at the same page hoping my child will know God and what He has planned for us.
