This Is the Church

We rated this book:


This is the Church is a kids’ story about the hand motion rhyme: “Here is the church, here is the steeple, open the doors and see all the people.” The little girl in the story wants to add to that song and shows what she wants to add throughout the book. Different types of churches are shown, big ones that hold thousands of people and small ones that hold maybe only one family. Other kinds of churches shown are ones that are held in people’s homes and others that are held outside maybe in front of a campfire. All of these churches are Christian churches, but each one looks a little different than the others. Even though the churches look different, what they have the same is that there are people. The church is the people.

This story does a good job of showing people worshiping God but in different places. It will depend on what you believe with churches because some people may think different things about a church building and some people may not think girls should be pastors, but these things are shown in the book. I like the pictures because they are pretty and the story is fun to read.
