God Is Kind

Sourcebooks/Wonderland. Jul. 2023. 24p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781728272627.
K-Gr 2–The various ways animals and humans seem to take care of one another within their species—giraffes nuzzling, or older sheep and lamb sitting quietly together—is seen as the kindness of God; “he gives the strength to forgive, be kind, and be glad.” The text reminds readers to share kindness by helping others when they are scared. Softened images of landscapes and spare woodland settings drive home the prayerful message.
VERDICT In collections where a masculine God is a given, this is a gentle and welcoming book.
