Mosaic Reviews: How Do We Know God Is Really There?

Who made God?

Why can't I touch Him?

How big is God?


If you are a parent, you've probably heard these questions and more at one time or another from your kids.  Sometimes the answers don't just roll off our tongues as easily as we'd like them, too.  Michael was really excited when I told him we were getting to review the book:  How Do We Know God is Really There?

We were familiar with Apologia's science curriculum, but I wasn't sure what to expect.  I was quite pleased with what we received.  It's a book I think we'll read over and over. 


Thomas and his dad are having their nightly talk, when Thomas asks his dad, besides the Bible, "How do we know God is really there?"   Thomas' dad leads him through a series of logical questions and illustrations to  answer that question in a way that any kid (or adult, even) could easily understand. 

What we really liked:

  • Written in a style that is easy to read and easy to understand
  • Appeals especially to boys and models father/son relationships
  • Older kids enjoy it as well
  • Simple watercolor illustrations that catch kids' attention
  • Addresses a hard to explain question in a way that makes sense 
  • Using scientific evidence and logic to answer the question "How Do We Know God is Really There?"
  • It's about space!  Michael's favorite page is where Thomas' is driving a race car on the rings of Saturn.  His face lights up every time!   

Apologia says on their website that this is the first in a new series of picture books on topics pertaining to other questions about the Christian faith.  My kids definitely enjoyed this one and we'll look forward to future editions in this series. 
This is the first in an exciting new series of picture books designed to introduce kids to important questions of the Christian faith in terms even pre-readers can understand. - See more at: http://shop.apologia.com/books/367-how-do-we-know-god-is-really-there-.html#sthash.SXyhzIqV.dpuf
