Sheer Perfection--When God Made You

I received a copy of this book for review purposes only. As always, this review contains my honest opinions.

Every now and then a children’s book comes along that is sheer perfection. When God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner is one of those rare books.

Every message I want to instill in my children and in all children is included in this book. God planned you and made you by design. The world needs someone like you. God knows your name.  God sees what is true. Learn about all that God has made. Use your talents and passions. God loves your true self. “That you--God’s YOU--will be hopeful and kind, a give who lives with all heart, soul, and mind.” God wants you to love one another, to be a peacemaker, to be confident, strong and brave. And most importantly, “You being you is God’s dream coming true.” The messages are set to a delightful rhyme and combined with beautiful illustrations from my favorite children’s book illustrator, David Catrow.

If all children (and adults) could read this story and understand who we really are, this world would be a better place. I plan to read this book to as many children as I can to remind them of how precious they are and that God wants them to be their true self. Kudos to Matthew Paul Turner!
