God Got A Dog by Cynthia Rylant, Illustrated by Marla Frazee, YR, 2013, 48p, My Rating=2
A sublime book for all ages, God Got a Dog celebrates the simple things in our world while taking a long, close look at what it means to be human. The soft, reflective, and often humorous words and pictures create a glimpse into everyday life through wide and wondering eyes that blends the familiar with the profoundly spiritual.
Stumbled upon this book at the library. The title stuck out to me so I read it.
Interesting concept but I didn't really see the spiritual perspective it promised, "It's hard to be God. You have to well, be GOD. But you also get to be God. Which means you have quite a perspective on things-- a perspective that no one else has. No one. So there you are, looking out at the world and everything in it, and one day you just might want to see what it's like to be a part of it all, and since you're God, you can do that. And so ...you do." (front cover flap)
I think it would have worked for me if all the "God" words were replaced by the word "Michael Jackson" (or your choice of a famous person). Then, it would be perspective!
