Updated review, June 2013: A few years ago, I purchased multiple copies of this book and distributed to various nephews, nieces, and friend's children. In the end I was left with 2 copies, one that I kept for my daughter and one that had no home...until now. My second daughter fell in love with this book when she was 3 months old. Any time we read her the book and show her the pictures, she immediately cheers up. This is her favorite book and we never leave home without it.
Highly, highly recommended.
God dreams that we reach out and
hold one another's hand and play one
another's games and laugh with one
Not everything goes well in the life of a child, but God will always be with him and in his heart. We are all different, yet we are all in the same family. There is a way to make God's dream come true. Do you know the secret?
This is a charming book with wide-eyed illustrations that compliment it perfectly. This is a book with no specific audience, but rather one that is universal. It is the perfect book to emphasize the importance of peace, love, sharing and the fact that we are all brothers and sisters.
For Christian parents, however, I think it's important to note that there is also an underlying theme - which we see a lot today - in the book that basically it doesn't matter what you believe, we're all worshiping the same God.
On one page, for example, the text reads:
"Even if we speak different languages
or have different ways of talking to God."
The accompanying illustration shows a Buddhist, a Muslim, a Jew, a Hindi, etc.
In the Bible, Jesus says "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)
I am NOT trying to start a debate here about right or wrong, what you believe, or in any way attack the author. He seems like a very nice man. And again, I do like many parts of the book, but as far as being called a "Christian" book, I would completely disagree. I thought other parents might want to know that the book actually takes a more Universalist approach rather than a Christian approach.
