Published: August 6, 2010

This is a book giveaway for the good days and the bad days! Thanks to the generous book publisher Laugh-A-Long Books, we have 5 autographed copies of Today I Found God for 5 lucky readers.

Reading level: Ages 4-8

Hardcover: 32 pages

Book overview: Everyone has bad days, and kids are no exception.   There are some days when things seem to go wrong from the moment you wake up.  It’s easy to feel angry and ask God “Why?” but it’s not always easy to hear His answer.

Today I found God is the playful children’s story about a boy on a quest to find out why God lets bad things happen.

The fast-paced rhymes and whimsical illustrations lead to an ending that is both unexpected and uplifting.  Discover God for yourself and find out He really is listening and wants to talk to you.

About the author: Greg Long is everything but your ordinary children’s writer– he draws on a lifetime of extraordinary experiences.  He got an early start in his parents’ backyard, entertaining kids with comedy magic and puppet shows.  He then went Big-Time to the Big Top. First attending the prestigious Ringling Brothers’ Clown College and then hitting the road as a circus clown with the world’s largest traveling tented circus.

Greg’s performed at the famous Second City Theater in Chicago, directed an award-winning children’s film and even composed a collection of silly kid’s songs.

Today Greg is back on the road teaching kids everywhere how to find God for themselves through stories, love, and laughter.

  • How wonderful to have such a book that is so creatively done. The message and the illustrations should keep a child’s interest. I think it is a wonderful book. Thank you Greg Long for having a passion to bring children to God.

  • I have shared Today I Found God by Greg Long with children ages 2-52. They all LOVE it! Everyone can relate to having a bad day. This book takes the question of why God lets bad things happen and breaks it down in a way the smallest of readers can understand. The story is entertaining and the illustrations are vibrant and include a little something extra special for the reader on every page. I highly recommend this book.
