Review: That's Where God Is

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

What Mom Liked:  This is an absolutely beautiful book that every Christian parent of littles (recommended for ages 4-8) should have in the family library...

It goes through the days of the week (something we're working on here).

It portrays a loving, functional family and friendships, with an awesome Grandpa included.

It uses favorite objects such as zoos, ice cream, thunderstorms, pizza, and playgrounds.

In age-appropriate language, it brings home the point that God is EVERYWHERE.

It uses actual scripture, with applicable Bible verses included on the pages.

And it leads a child into the most important prayer he'll ever make - inviting God into his heart.

Talk about focusing on the important stuff!

What Mom Didn't Like:  The illustrations are in a muted, almost pastel gender-neutral tone.  I loved them, but they weren't that catchy in Esmé's opinion.

That being said, this book is staying on our easily-accessible shelf for regular future readings and exploration...
