Product description

From Publishers Weekly

Similarly, Rabbi Marc Gellman (he and Monsignor Thomas Hartman together are known as the God Squad) offers stories for sustenance in And God Cried, Too: A Kid's Book of Healing and Hope. The collection stars Mikey, a "guardian-angel-in-training" and his teacher, "chief angel," Gabe. Each chapter is based on one of Mikey's questions ("What if nothing makes any sense?" and "What can I do when I'm afraid?" among them); Gellman's "Things to think about" section sums up each chapter.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-5. Rabbi Gellman, familiar to many from his writing and media partnership with Monsignor Thomas Hartman (the "God Squad"), here tackles some enormously important questions about faith that adults sometimes find difficult to answer for themselves--let alone talk about with children: Why doesn't God intervene before bad things occur? What happens to us when we die? Does God love some people more than others? As usual, Gellman is both reassuring and compassionate. The problem here is mostly one of audience. The first part of each discussion, a made-up story about an angel in-training getting his spiritual education, seems best suited to young children who are listening rather than reading on their own (the exception being a tale about the horrors of September 11). The follow-up, "Things to Think About," in which Gellman expands on the tales, adding depth and context, is clearly written for middle-graders. Using contemporary stories fashioned around middle-grade children (as he has done in past books) might have helped bring subject matter more in conjunction with audience. That said, this is nonetheless an empathetic, hugely thought-provoking book that begs for parent-child sharing and discussion. Stephanie Zvirin
