My Review:

If I Could Ask God Anything is a wonderful paperback book for children to discover clear, fresh answers to important questions about God, faith, prayer, and Christianity in language that the children will understand. Author Kathryn Slattery tackles difficult and challenging subjects that are hard for children to understand such as:

1. Who Is God and How can I Know for Sure God Loves Me?
2. Did Jesus live on Earth before or after the dinosaurs?
3. Why Is Taking care of Our Planet Important to Christians?
4. Why Do People Hurt Other People?
5. How can Anything Good Come Out of Pain and Suffering?

 This little book of well organized scriptural answers will help young readers establish a closer relationship with God as well as help parents nurture their child's mind and spirit with Scripture-based guidance. I have felt like a curious child sometimes and have often thought about asking God how He made butterflies and what do things look like from His perspective... This book is a welcomed addition to my library for future reading to my grandsons. It is written to bring peace and comfort and hopeful to the reader who has so many questions that beg for answers to be filled and indeed Kathryn  Slattery explains them well. The book is worth buying, reading and for gift giving as well.
