KIRKUS REVIEW

 Rabbi Sasso (God's Paintbrush, not reviewed) is a woman with a mission: She wants to show that a singular God is universal, despite cultural variations of God's identity. She creatively ties in the names people choose for God with their experiences. A young mother calls God ``Mother,'' a freed slave calls God ``Redeemer,'' a nurse calls God ``Healer.'' But what all of them don't understand is that, despite the various names, God is one and the same for all of them. Finally, the people meet by a lake, God's mirror, and realize that there is just one Creator, Healer, Redeemer, Father, and Friend. And they rename God together, calling God ``One.'' A little too earnest, perhaps. Stone's illustrations are fine and uplifting. (Religion/Picture book. 5-10)
