Does God Know How to Tie Shoes?

"My faith has been important to me since I was very young, and I wanted to write a book about God for children, but didn't know how difficult that would be until I tried. Because I have always loved the Psalms, I chose to refer to them throughout the book."

The Story
Katrina wants to know more about God: "Mama, what does God wear? Does God like to paint? Does God ever cry, Papa?" Her parents' responses, based on the Psalms, help Katrina to know God in ways that are very real to her. Poetic text and bright impressionistic illustrations combine beautifully to make this a gentle and affirming picture book that will encourage a child's exploration of God. Ideal for reading aloud.

Reviews
"The questions raised are typical of those posed by young children, and the result is a book that presents the concepts in an understandable, concrete way." —School Library Journal

"A graceful, quiet book to share on a lap or with a small group." —Booklist
