I absolutely love “When God Made You.” Any person of faith would. The book reminds the reader of how special they are and that God made them just the way he wanted them to be. I believe that this book is more suited for ages five and older. However, I do read it to my three-year-old twice a week but it does take about 45 minutes to get through the entire book just from her explaining what is on the page and pointing out her sister, herself, and our dog whenever she sees to her what represents her favorite people in the pages of this book. The fact that my daughter sees herself in the pages of this book is a huge selling point coupled with the rhythm of the book and colorful and imaginative pages.
‘Cause when God made YOU, somehow God knew that the world needed someone exactly like you!
There are not many children’s books with female leads. There are especially few children books with girls of color as leads particularly at the early childhood stage. It is extremely important to me that my children see themselves illustrated in some of the books that I read at to them at night. “When God Made You” is prefect for any child especially children of color. If you do not own this book it is definitely one to add to your child’s collection.
