Multicultural, Nondenominational, Nonsectarian

A charming invitation for young children to explore how God makes things happen in our world.

To young children, the world is full of things to see and touch. And by using those very examples, this enchanting book gently invites children to become aware of God's presence all around us.

Abridged from Because Nothing Looks Like God by Lawrence and Karen Kushner, How Does God Make Things Happen? has been specially adapted to board book format to delight and inspire younger readers.

Much has been written about the importance of reading simple, beautiful books to babies and preschoolers to stimulate brain development. But perhaps even more important, what you read begins to shape your child’s world, and creates the images that will remain with him or her throughout life. We read books to our children about letters, numbers, shapes, colors and safety, but do we give their minds the early food they need to think about life’s bigger questions?

As spiritual development experts now tell us, each child develops an image of God by age 5, with or without religious instruction. How Does God Make Things Happen? takes you and your child on an imaginative journey designed to help you open not only your child’s mind, but your child’s heart and soul as well.

About the Author:

Lawrence Kushner, author, lecturer and spiritual leader, is regarded as one of the most creative religious thinkers and writers in America. A commentator on National Public Radio's All Things Considered, he has focused us on spiritual renewal with wisdom and humor. Through his books and lectures, people of every faith and background have found inspiration and new strength for spiritual search and growth. It has been said that some spiritual leaders blend religion and psychology to help us walk better on the ground, but Lawrence Kushner draws on the wisdom of the mystics to help us dance better on the ceiling.

Kushner's acclaimed books include I’m God; You’re Not: Observations on Organized Religion & Other Disguises of the Ego; Honey from the Rock: An Easy Introduction to Jewish Mysticism; Invisible Lines of Connection: Sacred Stories of the Ordinary; The Book of Letters: A Mystical Hebrew Alphabet; Jewish Spirituality: A Brief Introduction for Christians; and In God’s Hands, an inspiring fable for children, with Gary Schmidt (all Jewish Lights).

Kushner served as rabbi at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury, Massachusetts, for almost thirty years; he is currently the Emanu-El scholar at Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco, and an adjunct faculty member at Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion. He is fascinated by graphic design and computers (designing most of his Jewish Lights books). He enjoys Mozart, hanging around sailboats, and making his granddaughters giggle.

Review:

"A good place for parents and children to wander and wonder."
Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of God's Paintbrush and other books

"Shapes great wisdom into the words and the images where children live and wonder and learn."
Walter Wangerin, Jr., author of The Book of God, Paul, and many other books
