Sammy has a big favor to ask God, but he isn't sure how to find Him. Is God up in the sky with the stars? Can we spot Him with binoculars? Do we need to pinpoint God's exact location before we can talk to Him? Where is God? Everybody Sammy asks seems to have a different answer, until Grandpa explains simply but eloquently how we can all talk to God anytime, anywhere.
As she has done in her previous children's books featuring the irrepressible Sammy, Why Do You Love Me? But I Waaannt It!, and Growing Up Is Hard, acclaimed author and radio personality Dr. Laura Schlessinger zeros in on an issue of real concern to parents and children alike.

Grade 1-4-When Grandpa finds Sammy in the barn, the youngster explains that he has been using binoculars to locate God to request a cure for his hospitalized mother's knee problem. He explains that he asked several people where to find God, and each of them had a different answer. "The grocery man showed me his fruits and vegetables and said God was in all growing things. That made me feel funny about eating my salad." Grandpa resolves the child's confusion with precision, wrapping it all up in a nice, neat package for his consumption: "God is helping your mother. He's doing it through the good doctors who are helping her. God is also expecting your mother to help Him help her by doing the exercises she needs to do to make her leg strong." The boy deduces that since God works through all people, He's in Sammy and can be contacted at any time. The lengthy story is convoluted at times and the tone is didactic. The full-page illustrations are done in watercolors and ink. While the adult characters have realistic features, Sammy has large Ping-Pong-ball eyes that give his face a cartoon quality that doesn't fit with the rest of the artwork.
