What I remember about this book is a sunny, warm day The kind of day that is perfect for swinging in your tire swing It was a red plastic tire swing which of course I remember going to the store to buy but, oddly enough, no memory of going to Sunday School.
So I m eating candy red hots Mmmm Swinging in the sun, eating red hots, and contemplating God and creation I was amazed at the concept of a deity up there who made me and my swing and my red hots I was very, very happy I remember thinking God made grass blades and God made me I spent a lot of time studying the plant world probably because I was close to it when I was young and short I believe this was the first book that made a profound impact on my life Or perhaps it just kick started the philosophical bent that I have At the very least, it made me associate candy red hots with God and if I had a writing inclination that might make a very odd and interesting story.
I am just a sucker for this golden books with their big headed children living gently in quiet worlds These are very soothing books to look at as a child, they don t engage your imagination, they don t require much from you except a turn of a page Sometimes a quiet book is a very nice thing.
Absolutely beautiful I read this as part of a collection of Golden books illustrated by Wilkin Though her illustrations are always charming, I felt these had a special glow about them and Watson s wording is far prettier and warmer than most of the other Golden books from that era These contain the updated illustrations Wilkin made in the 60s, I believe, to include multi cultural children Absolutely stunning and heartwarming A classic not to be missed I just re purchased this book on eBay for 3.
00 because I needed to have a copy I remembered this year, after seeing a picture of it, that I had it when I was little, and that I turned the prayers into songs at night with my mother by my bed.
I bought this book as an introduction to God to my daughter I am not a religious person in the sense that I go to church but I do believe in God and I wanted a way to start telling her about the subject I was not sure how she would take to the book, but she loves it and has read it on a regular basis and started to ask questions on the subject of God It is a fairly easy book for young readers with beautiful illustrations to go along with a message of love and positivity.
First sentence GOD IS GREAT Premise plot originally published in the 1950s, My Little Golden Book About God is a picture book for young children about GOD The book is written is simple, yet detailed too All in rhyme as well My thoughts It is not theological in nature But I m not convinced it has to be or needs to be It is not a gospel presentation or tract It is not a catechism It is a story parents can share with their children, perhaps even as a bedtime story I do think it is important for parents to talk about God, to talk with their children as if God was very real, very present with them I think it is a good thing to encourage kids to think about God, to talk about God, to ask questions, etc God is presented as CREATOR and SUSTAINER of the world He has planned everything everything is under his control God is always there Text 4 out of 5Illustrations 4 out of 5Total 8 out of 10
