K-Gr 3-Through expressive language, the author describes those times when a child's thoughts turn to God. On eye-catching spreads, different boys and girls recount moments of exquisite beauty, emotional stress, or unexpected happiness. Whether describing kite flying in the park with Dad or gardening with Mom or welcoming a sick friend home from the hospital or the relief experienced when it becomes clear that a neighbor is safe after a fire, the first-person narratives perfectly capture a child's breathless rush of words. Each vignette ends with the phrase, "-then I think of God." The brightly colored, realistic paintings show characters from different racial backgrounds. Each illustration corresponds with the reflective quality of the text. This title will spark discussion with children.-Suzanne Crowder, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, Frankfort Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
