Continue exploring the themes from this lesson with the following suggested children's literature.

  • The Little Soul and the Sun by Neale Donald Walsch, is a simple and powerful story that brings children a very profound truth: There is not absolute good or bad— underneath all that happens in the world, all that we call  “good” and all that we call “bad,” is love. Your child will discover a God that she or he can love, because God is love, as are all the Little Souls who are a part of God. And perhaps parents, too, will rediscover who they really are
  • God’s Dream by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Douglas Carlton Abrams, has a vision of God’s dream, which he shares here with the youngest of listeners. It involves people who reach out and hold each other’s hands, but sometimes get angry and hurt each other — and say they’re sorry and forgive. It’s a wish that everyone will see they are brothers and sisters, no matter their way of speaking to God, no matter the size of their nose or the shade of their skin. 
  • All Things Bright and Beautiful by Cecil Frances Alexander, is a timeless ode to nature that calls everyone to celebrate the wonders of life, great and small, seen and unseen. Bruce Whatley offers a fresh interpretation of this classic for the whole family to enjoy. Through his lush paintings, we join a little girl's country ramble and share her appreciation of the beauty around her: A flower, the wind, a mountain view, all gives her reasons to pause and praise, and inspire us to do the same.
