This book was provided for me for free from David C. Cook to read/review.

I loved this book!
A grandfather leads his young grandson on a discovery of where God is. The little boy through out the book with observant eyes and ears looks for God in his world.
There are Bible verses (NIV Reader's Version) interspersed in the book such as:
"Anyone who lives by the truth comes into the light. He does this so that it will be easy to see that what he has done is with God's help."
The books illustrations are in water color with cheery colors. The faces on the characters are modest; yet they are faces that have joy.  
I could give a lengthy review directed towards descriptive details about how wonderful this book is, but the most important thing about this book is that is explains on a child's level exactly where God is. It also gives a great opportunity for further questions and teaching time about God.
On a personal level I led my granddaughter to invite God in to her heart, what a priceless eternal moment!

Blissful Reading!
Annette
