I absolutely love this book by Matthew Paul Turner! It as such an amazing and powerful message. When God Made You is a children’s book written in rhyming verse with beautiful, colorful, and vibrant illustrations. It speaks to the uniqueness of every child, each one truly original.
From the title, it is obvious that this particular book is written from a Christian worldview. It highlights the value God has placed on his creation. God knew you before you were born and created you to be unique and special. Author Matthew Turner encourages the reader to follow their dreams, and explore their passions…to dream. My favorite verse says:
So be you- fully you- a show stopping revue. Live your life in full color, every tint, every hue. Discover, Explore! Have faith, but love more. And learn and relearn all that God made you for.
This book is whimsical with lovely images that make this a must have. I find it to be appropriate for ages 3-8. It would be a perfect addition to any Easter basket! The book focuses on a little girl, however I think a boy or girl would enjoy it. I received a review copy of this book from BloggingforBooks and was not required to give a positive review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
