Book Review of When God Was a Little Girl by David R.Weiss, WTS 1986 and illustrated by Joan Lindeman:
This is a children’s book published by Beaver’s Pond Press 7108 Ohms Lane Edina, MN 55439-2129 www.BeaversPondPress.com
What a delightful book! As I started reading, I was immediately drawn into the conversation between the father and the daughter. So much so, that I found myself reading it aloud. The story of how God, who is a little girl, creates the world progresses as the father begins the story and builds on the questions and comments of his daughter.
It is an old story with a new twist! The book engages the reader’s own imagination in anticipation as the questions are answered. And as I read it I could also imagine myself reading the book to my own grandchildren and answering their questions. It is a book that engages young and old. Its message is simple yet profound in its creativity.
