The Day When God Made Church: A Child's First Book About Pentecost

Creative re-imagining of a phenomenal story

"Is this what Jesus promised?
A new sound comes.
WORDS!
Words, like raindrops,

Pretty good introduction for the preschool/kindergarten/early elementary crowd. Lovely illustrations. Theologically sound. Talked about feelings more than I would, but that's a minor quibble.

We are a couple of weeks away from Pentecost—the celebration of the outpouring of the Spirit on all flesh: wind and fire, young and old seeing visions and dreaming dreams, and women and men speaking with other tongues. Acts 2 tells the story of one-hundred-and-twenty disciples gathered and waiting, surprised and vivified by the Spirit's presence, knit together as one family—the church—the body of Christ.

I love this book! I've been looking for a good Pentecost book for children and this is a good one for sure. Nice telling of the story, with details balanced with mystery. And lovely photos. And repeatedly states that women and children were part of the story.

Beautiful illustrations with a simple story about Pentecost - a topic that is rarely the focus of children's books.
