Who is God? Where do I go when I die? Is God even real? This book answers none of these questions, but it asks them all! It is a thoughtful book that enforces no views but stresses the importance of a healthy dialogue, curiosity, love, and wonder.
Paul J. Pastor (he/him) is a writer, editor, and wilderness lover who lives in the woods near Portland, Oregon, with his wife and 3 kids. His award-winning writing on Christian spirituality is widely recognized for its beauty and insight. He loves good questions (especially ones about God), big stories, and the holy wonder of living.

I have a subscription and when I saw the title about this book, I thought why not. My 9 year old has been asking questions about god and religion as he has a number of Muslim children in his class.
I read the book alone first and I’m glad I did. While this book is only “asking questions”, it comes from a premise that “god is real”.
The book has a few pages of questions and activities for the reader and child to engage in. After the questions, there is this statement “Wow, those are good questions. And hey, look what’s just happened! All of a sudden you’re taking about the Really Big Questions of Life.” We are? The really big questions of life are centered around god? Really?
This topic could have gone in so many directions, but it didn’t. It’s the first book that missed the mark in my opinion.
I love that this book starts with *questions*, not answers. It lets them know that they're allowed to ask all kinds of questions about God. Whether they are serious or silly. As the author themselves says in the book "answers can come later". I believe that just opening a child's mind to the idea of God and getting them comfortable talking about God is way more important that teaching them religious doctrine about God.
“Pastor” did a pretty good job of being unbiased in his observations about God, accepting plenty of optional ideas as to the existence, person, and function of the Deity. Wound up with the almost universally accepted view of the Ground of Being as “Love."
Excellent! I also have (more recently) written a slightly longer book about talking to kids about God ("Tell Me About God: A Book About the God of All Faith for Kids of All Ages"), and was delighted to read this. Paul Pastor and I are "on the same page" about God and what kids might want to know. I have recommended his book to many.
