    Powerful words especially for children with special needs  This book is so beautifully written and illustrated  The words went straight to my heart  Through this book I was able to open dialogue with my child about how special she is God didn't make a mistake when he made her little body  Even though her body works differently than other children her age God had a plan and he knew that the world needed her When God made YOU somehow God knewThat the world needed someone exactly like you Sometimes as parents to a special needs child we uestion God We want to know what was His plan and His purpose Seeing these words reading them to my child they were a balm to my soul God doesn't make mistakes and He has plans for my beautiful family  God had a plan when he chose to give me a child that was differently abledThis is a delightful book that your child will love The illustrations by David Catrow are absolutely stunning imaginative and uirkyexactly like my little oneIf you're looking for a Children's book that has a good message and substance to it I would strongly suggest this oneIt is so important that our children know that they are loved by God and that they are special to HimThis book is well suited for children ages 3 8  Important to note for children's books that the book is hardcover with paper pages  I would love to see a board book edition for the younger audiences in the future as I can see this being a well worn and loved addition to a child's library This review was originally posted on A Simply Enchanted Life

    Children are so curious about the world around them But they also wonder about themselves Are they special? Why are they different from everyone else? Who made them? The author and illustrator worked closely together to create a book that tells and shows children exactly why they are the way they are and who designed them to be that way Each page is completely covered in illustration while the lyrical words fit on each page to match My kids loved this book and so did I The illustrations are amazing The little girl is adorable and you can feel her joy coming through the pictures The words are thoughtful and sweet while telling the little reader how very special and uniue they are and that God created them perfectly I think every home should have this positive and inspiring book in their personal library I will be donating a copy to our school as well Definitely a five star bookI received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books All thoughts expressed are my own

    God smiles and here's why in the spark of your eyeA familiar reflection shines bright from inside'Cause when God made youand the world oohed and aahedin heaven they called you an image of GodYou you and when God dreams about youGod dreams about all that in you will be trueMatthew Paul TurnerThere are so many charming children's books available today but few celebrate the individuality and uniueness of children in the same way that When God Made You does It is a beautifully illustrated book with slightly abstract images bursting with vivid colors It radiates joy and with adorable rhyming verses it makes the reader feel loved and blessed by God This does a terrific job of helping young children to find their place in the world and know that they are one of a kindMatthew Paul Turner emphasizes that each child has a sparkle and brilliance that is just from them and the message that each individual was handcrafted with love by God is beautifully reiterated When God Made You is clearly a Christian story but it is not preachy and could be suitable for readers of various faiths Overall this is the best children's book that I have read in a while and I know that I will be purchasing multiple copies to give as gifts

    This was a pleasant little picture book telling children essentially what most Christian books say God made you special and he loves you very much Veggietales It has pretty pictures and a kind message What makes this book stand out is that the protagonist is a POC I think this is the first time I have ever seen a Christian picture book do this How this has not happened before I do not know but thank you Lord that there now is one I hope to see like it so when my students who are POCs see the message God made you special and he loves you very much they know it applies to them as well and not just white kids and talking vegetables I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review

    I loved this book It is aimed at preschool age children although the publisher has ages 3 7 listed and I think that is pretty accurate This is also a book I feel could be used in both your home and in a Sunday School or Children in Worship environmentThe illustrations are incredibly beautiful and the extremely colorful They also have a very flowly uality to them All of the characters in the book and illustrations are uite diverse which is something I don't think we see a lot of in children's books This book focuses on teaching children about their individual and uniue gifts and personalities and how they each fit in God's plan in their own special way The wording in the book matches the illustrations; poetics and full of rhyming it is sure to capture the attention of anyone who is reading itThank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy of this book

    Beautiful heartwarming encouraging diverse All the things I love about children's books all rolled into one I usually don't love the Christian children's books I buy as they are usually bland and preachy This one is anything but Matthew somehow reached into my heart and wrote all of the words I say to my girls daily But in a much beautiful way Buy it now
