Close As A Breath By Callie Grant Illustrated by Sarah Ackerley

Parents have little warning when a child decides to pop a big question about life or God. But on a day out together, this dad is ready. He responds to his daughter’s flurry of questions about the world and God with the vital answer that matters most. In the Graham Blanchard book collection, Close as a Breath is an Absorb book, which connects studies about the facts of God with a child’s inner life. Children assimilate on a personal level who God is and how they are made to be with him, trust him and love him―the life of a believer.

My Thoughts
I loved this little book. It is so beautiful and well illustrated. In a very sweet way Callie shows young children that God is always there and is with us everywhere. The writing is simple and would be great for lots of different ages. The back says ages 0-6 but I really think that even children a little older than that would enjoy it. I know my eight year old enjoyed it. It is such a pretty book. Very colorful and eye catching. The illustrations are very life like and fun. This book would make a great gift for children of a wide age range. Thank you to TBCN for this book to review. A positive review was not required.
