Is God Still Awake?: A Small Girl with a Big Question About God

Review: Is God Still Awake ? - Sheila Walsh - May 2022

This was such a cute and gorgeous story and the illustrations were one of the best I have seen for a children's picture book for a long time, so shout out to Aleksandra Szmidt who illustrated Is God Still Awake? This story introduces us to a little girl named Poppy who is told that God is everywhere and he is always with her. This makes her start to wonder whether God sleeps or is he awake looking over her when she is sleeping? Is God asleep when Bad stuff happens? I have to admit that this is one question that will be around for centuries still to come and one that no matter the age - why does God let bad stuff happen and people be mean to one another? We are told it happens, but God always has a plan and trust in him, no matter how hard we find ourselves suffering. Poppy has lots of questions that range from how to pray to him and how God listens etc. This was an adorable book and I would say perfect for any children especially daughters aged 3-7 years old and the best way to illustrate to them that no matter where they are God is always with them in their heart and always watching over them.

On the very last page we have the verses from Psalms 121 verse 1-3 which reads "I look up to the hills, but where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord. He made heaven and earth. He will not let you be defeated. He who guards you never sleeps"
