What is God? is an eloquent introduction to the ideas behind God and religion, and brings forward complex ideas in a way children will understand. It is written with a simple clarity and beautifully illustrated with just the right blend of seriousness and humor.

What is God? compares different religions — Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism — and their holy books, looks at misunderstandings and arguments among people of different religions, and talks about praying as well as feeling connected to everything in the world.

If you want to talk about spirituality with a child, or introduce them to philosophy or religion, or just help them to begin to center themselves and their feelings about the world, this book is a great beginning.

If you do not believe that there is only one true religion and want to teach your children who God is to different people/cultures, then this book is for you and your family. This book gives and easy to understand preview of different religions and how all of the people of the world may refer to God in different ways but we are all connected by the 'feeling' of love for whatever God/s we believe in.

It gives a pretty general overview of various religious beliefs. The author tries to show how almost all religions have the same ideals (no stealing, no lying¿) and that perhaps God is the same and is in everywhere and in everything and that we should all be a bit more accepting of each other and our various backgrounds. I liked the idea, but think it could have been a bit more thought through and the illustrations lacked quality.
