God, I Know You're There

God, I Know You're There

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.

My thoughts: GOD, I KNOW YOU'RE THERE is a very cute board book for toddlers and preschoolers that show that even though you can't see, touch, or interact with God you can know He's there.  The whole book is adorable and I loved it up until the end when it indicated that God is only in love that is shared -- but He is in so many other places. That is my only complaint about this book.  
The illustrations are well done. Recommended for preschools, daycares, and more. 
I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

I'm disapointed that an author would indicate "that God is only in love that is shared" for preschoolers.
