About the Book:

Thomas and his father escape to their backyard tree house most evenings to watch the night sky through a telescope. Thomas is dazzled by what he sees of God’s creation, but he has questions. “Dad, how do we know God is out there?” he asks one night. “I know the Bible says He’s there. But how do we really know that’s true?” Together, Thomas and his father begin to examine the cosmological evidence for God’s existence. This is the first in an exciting new series of picture books designed to introduce kids to important questions of the Christian faith in terms even pre-readers can understand. Read this aloud with your family, and you’ll come away knowing that “the heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1).

My thoughts:

Maybe you have had this discussion with your kids before, or even with your friends and family members.  It’s something that we all have considered at one point in our lives as Christians.  Yes we have faith and believe that God is there but the question is always here how do we know God is really there?  I really enjoyed sharing this book with my kids.  It was a fun way to explain some things to them that include both faith and science.  I really enjoyed the illustrations of the book and so did my kids.  The story is about a boy and his father so my oldest son always wants his father to read the book to him.  It’s a great book for children ages 3 to 15.  It’s written for them to understand and easy to spark conversations.  I recommend to teens because I think it would be great for them to read to younger siblings.  I definitely recommend this book to parents.
