I Go With God Book Review

Standard

Since we decided not to do Homeschool Review Crew this year, I thought it would be fun to try Book Crash. Book Crash lets you sign up to review books. We are all about free books in this house.

The first book we received was I Go With God by Jill Ferrie. I thought my super hero loving six year old would love to read about a  little boy who learns that prayer is a superpower.

The book started off with a letter that led me to think that I might not agree with everything the book said theologically.

In the book, the little boy wakes up excited because he is going to a friend’s birthday party. He feeds his fish and then realizes he doesn’t feel well. He prays and does feel better. He realizes prayer is like a superpower. At the end of the story, he prays for his fish who seems to be sick as well.

I have mixed feelings about this book. The illustrations were simple and colorful. So it was fine for a book geared toward elementary aged kids. I liked that the little boy realized that he could pray any time and God would hear him. I think this book would encouage a child to pray. I wasn’t thrilled with the fact that it says “God’s thoughts are angels.” Some of the things it mentions about angels I would say is the Holy Spirit.

Clarissa wasn’t excited about this book. It did, however, bring up some great discussions about prayer and healing in our house.
