$20.99

Hardback
Dear God, In Sunday School they told us what you do. Who does it when you are on vacation? -Jane Dear God, Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident? -Norma FROM THE INTRODCUTION BY ERIC MARSHALL AND STUART HAMPLE The letters in this book express that part of a child's world reserved for special thoughts and wishes. The subject matter ranges through those beliefs, desires, questions and doubts that are urgent and common to all children. Some of the letters are disarmingly wise, others naOve; some are knowing, some simple; some reverent, some not so reverent. Many are weighted with seriousness; others are lit with smiles. All of them are addressed to God with much hope and trust. Grownups know for certain, of course, that the letters will not get there no matter how much postage they carry. But then grownups know so much more than children-sometimes. In choosing these letters, we've tried to convey that incredible variety they represent. Their spelling and grammar have not been corrected, for what they say they say better as they are. Excerpted from Children's Letters to God: The New Collection. Copyright (c) 1991. Reprinted with permission by Workman Publishing.

- Publisher In 1966, a small unhearalded volume appeared in bookstores throughout the U.S.--and before the year was out over 500,000 copies of Children's Letters to God were in print. Today a new generation can discover all the unexpected pleasures and provocations of what happens when children under ten decide to send a letter off to God. Full-color illustrations throughout.

- Publisher Here is the unassuming little book that charmed its way up the bestseller lists and now has over 1.2 million copies in print. This third edition of CHILDREN-S LETTERS TO GOD reveals again the surprising pleasures and provocations of what happens when kids decide to send a letter off to their maker. Whether posing a question, begging a favor, or expressing doubt or joy, these letters are notable for their refreshing directness, unexpected humor, and startling clarity of thought. It-s like seeing the world through a child-s bright eyesoeyes untouched by cynicism, eyes brimming with innocence, wonder, and curiosity.Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club. ^

Cute, gift idea
3 stars By Rachel, Aug 09 2013
This book is sooo adorable!  Maybe I'm biased because I'm a Sunday School teacher.  Some of the letters will make you think, others are just hilarious.  Love that it's written in the original handwriting and spellinggrammar.  Great gift idea.  Should be made into a calendar so you can read one a day.  Pretty expensive for such a small book though.
