Where is God? Is He real? Look closely and you can see God’s touch all over creation. Like the sun, God is warm. Like the stars, God is dazzling. Like the wind, God is all around, everywhere. God, I Know You’re There, by bestselling author Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrator Lucy Fleming, reminds children of the nearness and goodness of God. Children will discover that God never leaves their side, even if they can’t see or feel Him. Each page will help children understand the many things in the world we can’t see, touch, or hear are just as real as God is. And even if God feels distant, He is real and He is near.
This is a beautiful book, both in the message and in the illustrations. What a great message for children who are just starting to get to know God. This book talks about how you can’t see the wind, but you know it is there and the same goes for God; you can’t see him but you know he is there. The book talks about the wind, rain, snow, the moon and the sun, explaining why we believe in them, when we can’t see or touch them. Each page has a cute little rhyme explaining each element. The illustrations are beautiful are feature a variety of different children, animals and natural scenes. This would be a great book for personal use, but could also be used in a Sunday School or Children in Worship setting.
Thank you to the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for sending me a review copy of this book.
