Description



About the Book



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.



Book Synopsis



YOU, you... God thinks about you.
God was thinking of you long before your debut.

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!

Wonderful story, beautifully illustrated and long overdue. Not very long ago a sweet book like this would have been almost impossible to find. Representation matters

FAVORITE BOOK IN OUR COLLECTION

This is our favorite book. It presents a reassuring and uplifting message to children with a thoughtful rhyme scheme. This book is longer than most board books, but I started reading this to my 6-month-old, who is now 8 months and she sat through the entire book every time. I have memorized this book, I have read it so many times. It's so easy to remember the melodic rhymes. If you read it with a good cadence you should finish in 3-4 minutes. I basically sing this book to my baby anytime she gets fussy and she calms right down. This book lead us to purchase other books by this author, but this is by far our favorite. "when god made light" is excellent as well.

I haven’t read it to my child yet and although I do think this book is too long for my 2 year old to probably sit through it is such a beautiful book! I got teary eyed while reading it and it’s definitely a book I’m going to start gifting to other parents

I bought for my nephew's first birthday, I got so choked up. This books stood out and decided to record myself reading the book. Also made the beginning pages of the book as a signature and message to have as a keepsake. From the words and reading, I felt motivated and reassured. Love love the book I reordered a copy for my children.
