Courageous author boldly breaks the mold, rewrites the new standard for children’s literature.
St. Louis, MO. Author Randa Handler has rocked the literary world with her new book “The Boy Who Spoke to God.” Challenging rather than accepting the long held adage that one should not write about religion or God Randa Handler’s new book handles both with uncanny wisdom, insight and deep respect.
“I believe that children did not have a book that addresses their basic questions about God. I decided to premise an early reader’s children’s book with exactly that. I created a book that is neither preachy nor slanted. It is a fairytale about a time long time ago in a place where four tribes find a way to live in peace and harmony despite vastly different religious beliefs. It presents an aura of mutual respect and understanding very much needed in today’s highly diverse world.” said Randa Handler.
“This is a really good book (The Boy Who Spoke to God) because it teaches that despite differences in religions, beliefs, ceremonies, and traditions among people, God is the God of everyone, and people should not let their differences separate them from others. The story is told in an excellent easy to understand fashion, with delightful colorful drawings, and children will understand this important lesson.” Five Stars: Israel Drazin, Amazon Reviewer
“The story describes a multicultural society living in harmony. This allows them to improve the population's health and abolish poverty by supporting the community's economy. Their world is perfect except for the different religious celebrations and holidays, which cause discord. The story makes the important point; it is the children who suffer most when society becomes dysfunctional.” FIVE STARS: Jane Hunt, UK
“In this modern world, in many countries, schools contain children of mixed races, cultures and religion; these are the future of this world. It is for this reason I believe this inspired book should be available everywhere in all languages for children.
It is written in a fairytale way, and this beautifully refreshing story is set in a wonderful magical kingdom where Greek, Chinese, Zulu and Mayan tribes live happily together, combining their skills, under the rule of King Dareios.” FIVE STARS: Susan Keefe.
“The Boy Who Spoke to God” is a lavishly illustrated 35 page eBook available at Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com and other online book sellers. A brief excerpt is available at:
