We received this book to give an honest review.

In this story a child wants to see God and asks a lot of questions about visiting God, talking to him, being his friend and so forth. Questions that kids do ask because they are curious, the mother in this story has very good answers for the questions that are asked such as God is a great listener and and he loves you. God wants us to rejoice and he invites us to His table. Overall a really good book to read

My 6 year old (who I call my spiritual child)

Surely, it took a lot of concentrated energy to speak a message of this magnitude. And the author has mastered that skill. The cover alone illuminates that there’s an exciting story, behind its pages. It is so true that the purity of children and its spirituality is radiated through this touching story. Not ...more
