Publisher's Description

I wanted to know all about God, 
So I went looking for him in signs of His creation . . .

In simple, poetic language this engaging book explores the kinds of questions children ask about God: What does God do in the morning? Where is God at night? What colors does God like? What does God's love feel like? The warm, colorful illustrations depict children of diverse cultural backgrounds wondering about God and experiencing God in their daily lives.

"Beautifully illustrated."
Church and Synagogue Libraries
"The children in this beautiful picture-book wonder about the nature of God and find Him in everyday objects and see Him in their interactions with others. . . This is a multi-cultural storybook that would be excellent for the preschool child. Perhaps it will even give adults new insights into the nature of God."
Kirkus Reviews
"A kindly, all-embracing, nonsectarian view of a deity whose likes include children of different colors, as shown in Jenkin's lush, sun-dappled paintings of glowing kids enjoying a snowy day, admiring a spider's web, or wrapped in Grandma's embrace. An attractive discussion opener."
