Synopsis

Does God Know How to Tie Shoes? by Nancy White Carlstrom

Katrina wants to know ore about God: Mama, what does God wear? Does God like to paint? Does God ever cry, Papa? Her parents' responses, based on the Psalms, help Katrina to know God in ways that are very real to her.Poetic text and bright impressionistic illustrations combine beautifully to make this a gentle and affirming picture book that will encourage a child's exploration of God. Ideal for reading aloud.

Reviews

School Library Journal The questions raised are typical of those posed by young children, and the result is a book that presents the concepts in an understandable, concrete way. Booklist In this lovely picture book, a small child questions her parents about the nature of God with a reassuring simplicity. . . . A graceful, quiet book to share on a lap or with a small group. CBA Bookstore Journal Carlstrom understands children's minds and her answers both comfort and stretch those minds. Children's Bookwatch A warm and delightful picture book. Publishers Weekly Deftly juxtaposes an adult metaphysical sensibility against a child's hands-on approach to spirituality.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
