Children's Corner: Where is God?

Welcome back to the Children's Corner. Today, I have another fabulous board book to review courtesy of Pauline Books and Media. Today, it is Where is God? written and illustrated by Joni Oeltjenbruns. Don't let the last name of the author scare you off. The book is a delightful and simple read and is intended for children  5 and under.

In this sweet little book, you go on a journey with a young baby in search of God. Joined by the faithful family dog, the baby looks in common and uncommon places people often look for God, including a book and underneath the bed. What makes this book special is that there are flaps for you and your child to lift up under each of these places the baby looks. Ultimately your child will discover that Jesus is within all of us.

This book gets 5 out 5 stars from me. This is a useful book for your child beginning their relationship with God, as they will ultimately ask and wonder "Where is God?" This is another book from Pauline Books and Media that Christian parents of all denominations will enjoy as there is nothing in it that only a Catholic family would enjoy. I look forward to reading it to my little boy many times over.
