Blogging From A to Z Challenge - K


This will be a walk down memory lane, so to speak. The majority of the books I will be blogging about were acquired during my son's childhood. I will be blogging about children's, MG, and Tween books that are on the bookshelves, with a few being found on the Kindle for PC. The titles will either have words that correspond with the letter of the day, will be on a topic that corresponds with the letter of the day or both. As I'm finding a couple of the letters a bit challenging, I may need to borrow a book or two from the library to complete the challenge.


Today is Thursday, April 12th.  Today is the 11th day of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge.  Today's word is kids.  Today's letter is K.


 And God Cried, Too
A Kid's Book of Healing and Hope

Author:  Marc Gellman

Illustrator:  Harry Bliss

Paperback, for ages 7 and up

Publisher:  Harper Trophy

Published:  September 2002

 

This is a book that my husband and I bought for our son.  We thought it might help us in answering some of the questions our son had, as to why bad things were happening in the world.  September 11, 2001 changed the lives of a lot of people, kids included.

I think I might want to read this one for myself. Interestingly, I have a holocaust book on my shelf with a similar title: "And God Cried: The Holocaust Remembered".

Adena said...

Never seen this book before and am adding it to my list. My kids have questions like this and sometimes a book can get a message across better than just talking to them.

I've never read this one, but it looks like a good one. I'll have to look it up on Amazon.

This is a great theme you have Susanne! And I did a shout out for you today.

Hi Claudia, I'm glad that my blog posts are inspiring you.

Hi Linda, I found this book to be very comforting. We all need reassurance from time to time and this book do that for me as well.

H Adena, I totally agree. I hope you get a chance to get this book.

Hi Sherry, I think it is a good book to have.

Hi Stephen, glad you are enjoying the theme. Thanks so much for the shout out.

This looks very poignant.

I think it's interesting that "Jesus wept." is the shortest verse in the King James Bible.

He loves us.

This looks like a wonderful book! Children need "spiritual" guidance in their lives, I think, to cope with all the terrible things that occur all around us every day. It's so much more difficult for children today than it was when I was a child. There were no such things as children shooting children, for example, in those days.

I haven't heard of this book before, but it sounds so good!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Your list of books is going to be very helpful since I always give the kids in my life books for birthdays and Christmas. Checking out all the blogs on the A to Z Challenge is very useful.

Any book like that would be a good place to start a discussion.

It's hard enough for adults to cope sometimes. I'm so glad there are books like this to help kids through the tough times. :)

I don't recall having books dealing with difficult topics when I was a kid. For that matter I don't remember being overly worried or concerned about heavy issues as a child. We had the atomic bomb scare, but I never worried about it and it fascinated me.

I think kids today hear about more scary things because of so much on TV and in the news and all.

Yes, it's always hard to explain why bad things happen.

Robyn Campbell said...

What a beautiful book! I really appreciate you sharing it. I wonder why I never knew about it? I have to get it. :-)

This book sounds precious. I'd not seen it before.

Susanne--I have never seen this book either. But it sounds like a great book for children. Thanks for sharing all these amazing books. I have 2 grandchildren who are read to every night before they go to bed. :)
