This is a multi-cultural storybook that would be excellent for the preschool child. Perhaps it will even give adults new insights into the nature of God.- Kirkus Reviews -A kindly, all-embracing, nonsectarian view of a deity whose likes include children of different colors, as shown in Jenkin's lush, sun-dappled paintings of glowing kids enjoying a snowy day, admiring a spider's web, or wrapped in Grandma's embrace. An attractive discussion opener.-
