When God Made You {Review}

  Ever wonder what God was thinking when he made you? Are you just a haphazard creation of personality? Or was there a plan, a purpose?

When God Made You celebrates the unique creation of us all. Following the wild adventures of a little girl, children are encouraged to find their place in the world. Repeated throughout the book are reassurances of God's love and intention in his creation. The story boasts everyone's uniqueness:
An incredible You, a you all your own,
a you unlike anyone else ever known.

With playful rhyme and rhythm and beautiful illustrations, the reader is transported into a fanciful world where children are taught to explore their passions and purpose:
Use your talents and passions,
those gifts that God fashioned.
Think up ideas and then
put them to action.

I read this book with my two younger children, 9 and 5 years old.  We got caught up in the rhyming style of the story and it almost read like a song.  We found ourselves wanting to tap out the beat.  And we all loved the illustrations.  They are colorful and whimsical.  And slightly busy which I don't typically like, but fit so well with the story.

All in all, this book is cute, full of wonder, and shares a beautiful message.  We're all a unique part of God's plan and the world wouldn't be the same without us.  Let's celebrate!
