    New Book Recommendation:


    Where does God Live?
    written by Holly Bea
    illustrated by Kim Howard

    It's an excellent book if you want to try and make things a little clearer to your child without bringing a church affiliation into it. This book explains that God is elemental rather than theological.

    small excerpt:

    "You know God made everything, seen and unseen,
    The wind and the sun and the meadow so green.
    Flowers and stars and oceans of blue.
    Trees, birds and rocks and all people too.

    And when God makes a person, a star or a wave,
    A part of God stays with whatever God's made.
    So God lives in the sky, in the meadow and stream-
    God lives everywhere, and God isn't a dream

    God lives in frogs, and the birds and in you.
    When you're looking for God, it's easy to do,
    God lives in all things that you see, hear or touch.
    God lives in all people. God's in each one of us.

    And when you meet people who are loving and good.
    They're letting God out, just as everyone could.
    And if you meet people who seem hateful or bad,
    They've forgotten God's here and that makes God sad."

    This book is told from the little girl's point of view, the answers come from her grandmother.

    I highly recommend this book to all parents of all cultural backgrounds.

    Dux, that sounds good. My oldest is almost 5 and confounding me with questions about God and heaven (and mummies and zombies - don't ask). A family member died over Xmas, which triggered the onslaught of "why's?". I'll be checking the library for that one.

    Anyone who wants a great board book for really little ones, check out "My Many-Colored Days" by Dr. Seuss. My oldest loved it and now my baby will sit and listen to it as well. Needless to say, I know it by heart. The illustrations are great and of course, everything rhymes

    I love Roald Dahl. He's such an awesome writer. I get a sample of all of his great pieces when I go to Forensics tournaments because they're very humorous. He's definitely a favorite among the poetry and humor interpretors.

    Help!

    I remember our 5th grade class (way, way back in the '70's) reading a book called The Land of Og or something like that. Has anyone else heard of it? I'd like to find a copy for my kids, but I'm not even sure that's the title.
