“When God Made You,” by Matthew Paul Turner (and illustrated by David Catrow), is a sweet and empowering children’s book. While it definitely seems geared towards those who are religious/spiritual, the message that no child is a mistake and that each child is made to be wholly and uniquely themselves is a wonderful message for all.

This book celebrates differences, individualities, and helps teach children the importance of using all the gifts and talents and love they were given to help, accept, and love others.

Not only is the message beautiful, but the artwork is incredibly colorful and bold and exciting. It, in and of itself, takes you on a journey through the little girl’s imagination and creativity. The pages are bright and imaginative and your child(ren) will love it.

It has already passed the kid test in our household. I hope your child(ren) enjoy it as much as ours.

My favorite line: “You being you is God’s dream coming true.”
