God Went to Beauty School

Author: Cynthia Rylant

Page Length: 56

Reading Level: 4

Genre: Fiction/Poetry         

PLOT SUMMARY: This is a collection of 26 short poems in which God is the main character. God lives out day-to-day life encounters as a teen living on earth would experience.  The poems are written from the author’s perspective of how God would react to beauty school, a dog, cable T.V., relatives, girls, and even fudge.

REVIEW: This is a short book and it is easy to read.  It would be a good book for the lower level reluctant reader to begin independent reading.  The poems enlighten the reader with a more realistic view of God’s perceptions.

AREAS OF TEACHING: Writing poetry, Point of View, Symbols, Word Choice, Voice, Mood and Tone

TOUCHY AREAS-PAGES: God as a character in a fictional book

RELATED BOOKS: Every Living Thing, For the Graduate: God’s Guide for the Road Ahead

MOVIE CONNECTIONS: Oh, God (1977), Bruce Almighty (2003)
