On Our Shelf – Getting to Know God

Title:  Getting To Know God

Author/Illustrator: John Kosmas Skinas

Publisher: Conciliar Press

What it’s about: How we use our five senses to get to know God.

What we love about it: The size, the beautiful and well thought out photographs, the clean and appealing organization of the five senses, and the content used.  We really love how it helps children to understand the different ways they can use their senses to get to know God.  We also love the beautiful children’s prayers at the end of the book!

Activity: My Five Senses found on our scribd page.  Also check out our Pinterest page for more ideas.
