Write Now Literary Virtual Book Tour: "Grandma How Do You Know God is Real?" by Lorita Kelsey Childress Book Review

About the Book   

Grandma, how do you know God is real? is about a six-and-a-half-year-old girl named Kendra, who spends a few weeks of her summer vacation with her Grandma.

She awakens one bright and sunny morning and asks her Grandma how does she know God is real? Grandma, takes Kendra on an adventure to show her all the reasons as to why she knows God is real.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can't tell you how much I love the premise and the beautiful illustrations throughout.  The story is nice, simple, and powerful.  It is the perfect book for a grandmother to share with her granddaughter.

While I absolutely love the message in the book, I have one thing I wish were different.  This book seems to depict that only women and girls are true Christians and go to church.  I was disappointed in the response of the grandfather, and I would have liked to have seen that developed more.  I realize and appreciate that his generation would have seen it as the wife's place to go to church and the husband's to stay home.  After all, he is the breadwinner who worked all week to provide for his family.  I don't mind his voicing his opinion, but it almost makes light of it.  I know this is a small thing, but it is just something I would have liked to have seen handled differently, especially since it is a children's books.  But I certainly can't complain with the theology presented in the book!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
