That's Where God Is

TITLE: That's Where God Is
AUTHOR: Dan and Ali Morrow

I received this book a while back and have not shared it with you. It is a children's book called That's Where God Is by Dan & Ail Morrow with illustrations by Cory Godbey.

A young boy asks Grandpa a question that many of us may have wondered ourselves: "Where is God?" Grandpa encourages the boy to look for God in the coming week. As the boy goes about his daily life he finds God every day...with the animals He created, when we share, and when we forgive. At the end of the week the boy shares with Grandpa where he has found God.

This book is appropriate for preschool through early elementary aged children. Besides the spiritual message, this book also incorporates the days of the week. Also, each day has a different verse related to the place that the boy found God that day. The illustrations were not my favorite for a children's book. The layout and font were easy to read. Overall I enjoyed this book.
Thank you to David C Cook book review program for providing me a review copy of this book.

Lyle Walks the Dogs

TITLE: Lyle Walks the Dogs
AUTHOR: Bernard Waber
PUBLISHER: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Lyle the crocodile has a dog walking job. He starts with one dog and each day adds one more dog that he is walking. This is a great book for young children as they are learning to count. Besides the dogs there was some other things to count and look for on each page.

One Hand, Two Hands

One hand, two hands,
Five fingers, ten.
God, thanks, for my hands.
Please, use them again.

TITLE: One Hand, Two Hands
AUTHOR: Max Lucado
PUBLISHER: Tommy Nelson

I am happy to share with you a new children's book by Max Lucado called One Hand, Two Hands. It is written with rhyming text and shows children a variety of ways that we use our hands every day all day long. The illustrations by Gaby Hansen are really fun and add to the enjoyment of this book in my opinion.

If you have a special little one in your life, I recommend this book for them. You will enjoy it together. My son and I did.
