Parents, teachers, and anyone else entrusted with the spiritual formation of young children will find that the book can help to create the space to listen to the voice of God as it gently guides us and speaks to us. It would make a great bedtime read.-- (09/10/2018)
Shhh... God Is in the Silence is a calmly repetitive, meditative book that encourages children (and adults!) to focus on being silent and listening to God. I think it's a perfect bedtime book, and really adds another element of prayer, especially to families that are more comfortable with rote prayers and want to expand their horizons. There's also a bilingual edition!-- (08/28/2018)
I read this book with a class of kindergartners for their first time in Eucharistic Adoration as a class. The simple "Shhh..." at the beginning of each page helped draw their silent attention into the pictures and inspired a quiet conversation about how they can talk with God in the silent times of their days. They all loved it and I'd highly recommend this book for anyone with young children or even just for themselves!-- (10/18/2018)
This lovely picture book brings home the message of God's great love for each of us found deep within the silence of our hearts.--Esther Gefroh "A Catholic Mom in Hawaii "
