About When God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner
Age Range: 3-7 years
When God Made You is all about how unique and deeply loved we are in God’s eyes. The book has two young sisters and their pets as the stars who go about their day as they learn how special they are to God. Children are curious and are always trying to discover their place in the world and how they fit in. This book will inspire young readers just how they fit in God’s plan and how special their own gifts are.
Our Thoughts on When God Made You
My girls absolutely loved this book! From the beautiful and colorful illustrations by David Catrow to the playful and charming rhymes. My 6 year old was instantly drawn to the book as the little girl on the cover looked just like her with braids and all. Also she noticed that the big sister had a dog and a baby sister just like her too! And I’m always happy when my girls are able to relate to a book and see themselves in the story. My 2 year old really loved the vibrant colors and the rhyming. When God Made You is an easy read and also very easy to understand. It made my oldest ask a bunch of questions and she was amazed that God knew the amount of hairs on her head!
While this book is targeted to the younger crowd, I’m in love with this book too! It’s such a feel good book with beautiful messages that every person should hear. Reading this will make your child feel special and give her the confidence she needs to believe in herself and you too! Most of all it’s a great conversation starter about God and self. God thinks about you, dreams about you, will always be with you, and his family wouldn’t be the same without you in it! I love it! So we will definitely be reading this book over and over again. This is a perfect bedtime story to read right before we say our prayers. I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a positive and fun read that includes God.
