From the Back Cover
When a young boy asks his mother where God lives, she tells him 'in your heart.' This inspires a slew of curious questions: Is he invisible? Is he like a superhero? Can he fly? How can he be everywhere all at once? In this heartwarming conversation between mother and son, all the ways in which God exists are discussed and the possibilities are endless. Through bright, dreamy illustrations, How Big Is God captures the immensity and wonder of looking at God---and the world---through a young child's eyes.

The child thinks for a moment before saying, "If God is in my heart, he must be very, very tiny."
Mom responds, "It's amazing, isn't it? He can be inside, beside us, and all around at the same time."
This begins a delightful conversation between the two in How Big Is God?, written by Lisa Tawn Bergren and illustrated by Laura J. Bryant. Throughout the book, the naturally curious child asks all kinds of questions about God, such as: Is he with my friends? Is he invisible? Can he fly?
Of course it's difficult to describe God or to define Him, but this response from the mother says it best: "Think of him like sand, small enough to make its way into your sock. Or big enough to make a whole dune. A whole desert!"
The story is illustrated with colorful, whimsical watercolors; these, coupled with the bright, fast-paced text, make this a very child-friendly book.
What I Like: Everything. The author tackles a difficult subject with illustrations and examples a child can understand.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
Age Appeal: 4-8.
