By Katherine Bolger Hyde, with illustrations by Livia Coloji
Inspired by a story told by Father Thomas Hopko
The world is like a giant puzzle God made that teaches us about Himself. Every piece—earth, sea, and sky, plants, animals, and people—reveals something about who He is and why we're here. Everything Tells Us about God will help children recognize the beautiful and sometimes mysterious pieces of this puzzle for themselves.
About the author: Katherine Bolger Hyde has devoted her life to books as a reader, editor, and writer. Her works include the picture book Lucia, Saint of Light (AFP, 2009), the YA fantasy The Dome-Singer of Falenda, and the adult mystery series Crime with the Classics. Katherine lives in the redwood country of the California central coast, where she shares a home with her husband, the youngest of her four children, and two obstreperous cats. When not reading, writing, or editing for her day job, she can generally be found knitting while watching British mystery series or singing in the choir at St. Lawrence Orthodox Church.
About the illustrator: Livia Coloji makes things up and then paints them with overlying layers of vivid color. She has done this since she was little, but professionally she's been doing it for twelve years now. Most of her projects are in the field of illustration, for clients based all over the world. In 2015 she was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards of the Association of Illustrators (AOI). When she's not working on commissions (or petting her two cats) in her shared studio in Timisoara, Romania, she creates artwork inspired by nature and human nature.
