What is God Like? By Beverly Lewis
Before a father leaves for his longest business trip yet, he encourages his son and daughter to remember, “Even when I’m not here, God is always with you.” After he leaves, the boy and his sister spend a fun-filled day and star-filled night remembering everything their father told them about their heavenly Father: He is powerful, loving, everywhere, all-knowing, perfect, merciful, unchanging, creator, and a Father who wants to be known, talked to, obeyed, and worshipped. With imaginative text, Bible verses, and inspiring full-color illustrations, Bevery Lewis and Pam Querin take difficult concepts and bring them to life in the minds of children–and parents, too!
