Nothing is going right for Erik. His breakfast milk is spoiled, he loses his perfectly polished rock for show-and-tell, and Todd snickers at everything he does. But instead of getting mad, Erik learns how to make bad things good-- and how to make God smile.

A great book to teach children the importance of always being nice and doing the right thing. "Reading this with your children is a fruitful experience as the children see their relationship with God in the every day experiences of life. The angry or negative response seems to come instantly and thinking before speaking or acting shows the better, helpful response." This book by Gold Medallion finalist Jeannie St. John Taylor is a must for any congregational or home library. Well written and beautifully illustrated, Am I Making God Smile shows children how to have a prayerful attitude to carry them through even their worst day; an attitude that will make them happy and make God smile. -- Gail Welborn "Montgomery's Journey" (05/01/2006) "Well written and beautifully illustrated, Am I Making God Smile? Shows children how to have a prayerful attitude to carry them through even their worst day, an attitude that will make them happy and make God smile." -- Gail Welborn "Christian News Northwest" (09/01/2005) "Along with its incredible illustrations and fun story line, this book has tremendous value for the wonderful message it shares. Erik maintains an ""open line"" of prayer throughout his day with God. He looks for ways to share happiness with those around him, and to make God smile in doing this. A broad array of emotions is shared in the book, confronting the gamut of feelings our children confront each day." -- Lisa M. Hendley (03/01/2005)
