Nondenominational, Nonsectarian, Multicultural
From award-winning author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso comes a new story to delight children and adults of all faiths and backgrounds.
This is the magical, mythical tale of a poor village at the foot of a hill--a topsy-turvy town with no roads and no windows, where the people sneeze through tall tangled weeds and trip over rocks as big as watermelons. Surely God would help them, they decide ... but how can God be found, and where should they look? They soon find that the answer is much nearer than they thought.
This story teaches that God can be found where we are: within all of us and the relationships between us.

Kindergarten-Grade 3-With the biblical verse 1 Kings 11-12 as a jumping-off point, Sasso presents a parable about a small town's search for God. There are no roads and none of the houses have windows so the inhabitants decide to look for God to solve their problems. At the edge of town are two homes, each with one window, and the people who live inside are called the Ones Who Could See Out Windows. This man and woman are each sent in search of God. Their journeys to a mountaintop, the deepest ocean, the driest desert, and the darkest cave are unsuccessful. Sadly, the two meet up, tell each other about their futile travels, and return home. Then they begin to help one another put in more windows and clear a road between their two houses. When the confused townspeople point out that they had never been able to do these things before, the Ones Who Could See Out Windows explain that God is "wherever we are...in the between. In between us." Parents in search of a totally nondenominational explanation of God that stresses that people should lend a helping hand to their neighbors will find this useful. The full-page pastel paintings present a multicultural community and a glowing vision of the discovery.
