ISBN 0307203123 - I'm a huge fan of Golden Books, and not a fan at all of religion, so I was curious to see how the two would go together. I'm surprised to say they work together nicely here. Sturdy board book pages are nice and the medium size of the book is good for small hands. The illustrations by Eloise Wilkin are mostly pleasant, kind of boring, although some are stand-out excellent.
From "God is Good", through to "God is Love", this small book attempts to introduce your child to the higher power you, presumably, believe in and wish to share. It explains, in a basic sense, who and what God is, in terms simple enough for young children.
While religious parents will enjoy the idea of sharing this little gem with their children, you should know that if you're a strict believer in the bible and the "created in seven days" idea, this book may contradict your beliefs with "Think of the snow-capped mountains. Those peaks were crumbling away with age before the first people lived on earth." For those whose religious beliefs are more open, this really is a nice book that's pretty basic. The text is too long for most of the intended audience of most board books (toddlers) and might be more appropriate for older kids who wouldn't want to be caught with a "baby book".
This is one of the best "LGB" I've ever come across!! It holds a lot of sentimental value for me as I had the same book as child. This illustration is fantastic if your into the old school. LOVE LOVE LOVE It!!!
