Children Write To God

The following letters express that part of a child’s world reserved for special thoughts and wishes. Some letters are disarmingly wise, others naive; some are knowing, some simple. Many are wieghted with seriousness; others are lit with smiles. All of them are addressed to God with much hope and trust.

Dear GOD,
In school they told us what you do. Who does it when you are on vacations?
– Jane

Dear GOD,
Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?
– Norma

Dear GOD,
Who draws the lines around countries?

Dear GOD,
Thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.

Dear GOD,
Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before, you can look it up.

Dear GOD,

Dear GOD,
I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only four people in our family and I can never do it.
– Nan

Book Highlight



Told in diary form by an irresistible heroine, this playful and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the May Bird trilogy sparkles with science, myth, magic, and the strange beauty of the everyday marvels we sometimes forget to notice.

Spirited, restless Gracie Lockwood has lived in Cliffden, Maine, her whole life. She’s a typical girl in an atypical world: one where sasquatches helped to win the Civil War, where dragons glide over Route 1 on their way south for the winter (sometimes burning down a T.J. Maxx or an Applebee’s along the way), where giants hide in caves near LA and mermaids hunt along the beaches, and where Dark Clouds come for people when they die.

To Gracie it’s all pretty ho-hum…until a Cloud comes looking for her little brother Sam, turning her small-town life upside down. Determined to protect Sam against all odds, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: The Extraordinary World. It’s rumored to lie at the ends of the earth, and no one has ever made it there and lived to tell the tale. To reach it, the Lockwoods will have to learn to believe in each other—and to trust that the world holds more possibilities than they’ve ever imagined.
