That's what the little boy asks his grandpa and explores throughout the book. What's the answer? For starters, the boy decided God is at the zoo with all the animals He created. And at the ice cream parlor where his sister shares her treat with him. And in storms and all of nature. And in forgiveness for mistakes like breaking his mommy's vase. And in prayers of thanksgiving for a meal. And on the playground when friends help each other.
Yep, he discovers that God is everywhere. And when he tells his grandpa, his grandpa asks if he would like God to be in his heart to, and he prays for that.
It's sweet. It's even sweeter when you read the note at the end from Lee Strobel, father of one of the authors Ali Morrow (who co-authored this book with her husband Dan. Though I think it would be cooler if his name was Tom.). Strobel writes that this book is precious to him because he didn't direct his daughter or son to God when she was little because he and his wife were an atheist and agnostic at that time. He writes, "So today, Leslie and I can pull our little granddaughters onto our laps and read them this story of finding God in the nooks and crannies of daily life - and explain how they, too, can find eternal life through Him."
My only critique is that salvation is presented in the flowery language of inviting God into your heart. The cross? Not mentioned. The resurrection? Nope. Acknowledgment of sin and the need for a Savior? Not there. The prayer the little boy prays? "Dear God, I am glad that You are all around me. I want You to be with me wherever I go. Come into my heart, and help me to be more like Jesus." I could express more of my discontent with this type of prayer, but Dr. Mohler does a better job here.Read more ›
One reviewer mentioned that he/she didn't like the prayer at the end of the book, I find it completely appropriate for preschooler and younger elementary children. The prayer is in a language that the children understand, they don't have the mental capacity yet to understand concepts like "salvation" "redemption" and other concepts that older children and adults really need to understand before they make their decision to accept Christ. I see this as a beautiful way to help a child discover Jesus, and that God is indeed everywhere when Christ lives in us.
I will be purchasing these for our resource table, and for gifts because I think it is AWESOME!
I loved the way this book teaches children to find how God is at work all around them. It also has a scripture that goes along with each way the little boy finds a part of God displayed around him (I loved the scriptures included).
At the end of the story, the little boy reports back to his Grandpa, who then shares with the little boy about how God can be with him everywhere he goes by being in his heart.
This is a great story, easy to read and relate to with children. The pictures are beautiful as well. I have a feeling it will become one of our favorites as Caleb grows older - I can see us reading it over and over. Great conversations could be had over the way this little boy finds God working around him and how we can see God working in our day as well.
I received this book for free from The B&B Media Group for my honest review.
I read this book to my son the day we received it in the mail. He loved it. The illustrations are colorful and eye catching. That's Where God Is tells the story of a little boy who asks his Grandpa, "Where is God?" His Grandfather sends the little boy on a mission to look for God during the following week. Through the telling of this delightful story, the authors do an excellent job of exploring the many ways God can be discovered within the events of each day of the week.
In each two-page spread, a new day of the week is featured. The little boy finds a different situation in which the he "finds" God. A Scripture verse underscores that particular "sighting" and reveals further truths about God's character and redeeming power in our daily lives.
Not only does this book provide an amazing way to talk with your child about Emmanuel, God with us, but it provides a unique way to teach your preschooler the days of the week. I am using it with my son's preschool work this year.
This book provides the opportunity for meaningful discussion with your child. When we read the book through the first time, Bentley asked many questions. That's Where God Is opens up a world of opportunity to talk with your child about creation, the power of a thunderstorm and how not to be afraid, to the way you share things with others, how you forgive, and how to show mercy.Read more ›
