From Publishers Weekly
Similarly, Rabbi Marc Gellman (he and Monsignor Thomas Hartman together are known as the God Squad) offers stories for sustenance in And God Cried, Too: A Kid's Book of Healing and Hope. The collection stars Mikey, a "guardian-angel-in-training" and his teacher, "chief angel," Gabe. Each chapter is based on one of Mikey's questions ("What if nothing makes any sense?" and "What can I do when I'm afraid?" among them); Gellman's "Things to think about" section sums up each chapter.

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-7-Two characters, Angel Gabe and young angel-in-training Mikey, raise tough questions and seek compassionate, loving answers. In 15 chapters, they wrestle with issues of why September 11 happened, why a pet died, why God works miracles, etc. The stories and conclusions represent a Judeo-Christian view of the world where God is compassionate and loving, and where neighborliness and kindness to others are of utmost importance. Each chapter ends with "Things to Think About." The book is conciliatory, comforting, and gentle.

As the faith community nurse at my church, I have given copies to children and adults. I, myself find that when times are tough for me, I can sometimes comprehend best through a book like this written for children. Somehow the experiences translate into my life faster, helping me begin "living through" and beyond whatever I'm facing. After that I can gain more as I read resources written for adults.
I wish the publisher would re issue the paperback version of this very insightful book. It seems to be a nearly perfect beginning for explaining very hard realities, leading springboards for discussion & possible understanding for those of every faith.
comfort - answering many of their precious questions. They are 7 and 4 years of age.
Rabbi Gellman is a true angel here on earth!
