This little gem of a book is the perfect bridal shower present.

I have enjoyed this book with my five year old and 20 month old. The illustrations are bright and bold and the book describes the origins of God's name. It is clear, understandable and inspirational for young and old alike. I highly recommend this as a godparent gift in board book for younger children and hardback for older children.

My baby loves this book, especially the pages with the mother and father. It manages to be diverse and inclusive without seeming stilted or preachy. Lovely little book.

This is a beautiful book. I just wish I had known that it was essentially just an abridged board-book edition of her other book, In God's Name, I didn't need to buy both.

This is a version of IN GOD'S NAME (for elementary age children) by the same author. Both are beautifully illustrated with multicultural illusatrations and teach inclusion to help make our world come together rather than divide us.

I received this in the mail today and was a little disappointed that it is a very small book. It's 4in x 4in. It's fine for my toddler's little hands and she will enjoy that it's very colorful, but if I was giving a book as a gift to someone, I like to give a book that is larger. That may be odd, but that's how us women-folk are. Very sweet message though.

This book is beautifully written and illustrated and a great book for kids of all ages. My 2 year old loves it. It is not too preachy and can appeal to any group of people.
