A metaphor is a powerful literary tool that brings readers to a deeper level of understanding. In this children’s book, Delval combines metaphors from the Bible with simple language to convey biblical truths about God. Each page contains word and picture images that encourage children to see God in their world. Families reading this thought-provoking text may enjoy writing their own metaphors about God or illustrating the metaphors from the text. This beautiful book could be read any time but would be suitable during devotions or as a bedtime read aloud. (Eerdmans)
