about the book
From early on, children are looking to discover their place in the world and longing to understand how their personalities, traits, and talents fit in. The assurance that they are deeply loved and a unique creation in our big universe is certain to help them spread their wings and fly.
Through playful, charming rhyme and vivid, fantastical illustrations, When God Made You inspires young readers to learn about their own special gifts and how they fit into God’s divine plan as they grow, explore, and begin to create for themselves.
‘Cause when God made YOU, somehow God knew
That the world needed someone exactly like you!
What a wonderful book for children of all ages! I truly ENJOY reading this book to my children. The words are intelligent and encouraging, the rhythm is soothing yet engaging, and the illustrations are intricate, bold, and engaging.
This book celebrates the everyday while challenging children to continue learning and growing into the person they are created to be. Most importantly, it emphasizes God’s love for each individual child.
When God Made You is a bookish treasure to share with each uniquely special child in your life.
I requested the opportunity to read and review this book through Blogging for Books. The opinions expressed are my own.
