To young children, the world is full of things to see and touch. And by using those very examples, this enchanting book gently invites children to become aware of God’s presence all around us.
Abridged from Because Nothing Looks Like God by Lawrence and Karen Kushner, How Does God Make Things Happen? has been specially adapted to board book format to delight and inspire younger readers.
Much has been written about the importance of reading simple, beautiful books to babies and preschoolers to stimulate brain development. But perhaps even more important, what you read begins to shape your child’s world, and creates the images that will remain with him or her throughout life. We read books to our children about letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and safety, but do we give their minds the early food they need to think about life’s bigger questions?
As spiritual development experts now tell us, each child develops an image of God by age 5, with or without religious instruction. How Does God Make Things Happen? takes you and your child on an imaginative journey designed to help you open not only your child’s mind, but your child’s heart and soul as well.
“A good place for parents and children to wander and wonder.”
—Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of God's Paintbrush and other books
“Shapes great wisdom into the words and the images where children live and wonder and learn.”
—Walter Wangerin, Jr., author of The Book of God, Paul, and many other books
