Wiggly kids may have this book in church! This fun book is meant to accompany a child to church – or sit in the pews waiting for him or her. Exploring questions young children naturally have, the answers are both educational and entertaining, such as: Why do we have to be so quiet inchurch? Does God hear me when I sing? Why do we say "Amen" at the end of everything? Does God like it when I kneel or bow my head? What does God look like? Does God remember my Baptism? Can God see me, no matter where I go or what I do? Does God see me when I do something wrong? Does God really forgive my sins?
