Book Review: When God Made You

I had the pleasure of reviewing a beautifully illustrated children’s book called “When God Made You” sent to me by the author himself Matthew Paul Turner and illustrated by David Catrow. At first sight I was completely intrigued by the cover. After reading it I fell in love. The message it delivers to the reader is so uplifting and the affirming words used are so on point. This book basically explains how unique and perfectly God made each and every one of us. David Catrow gave this reading experience so much life with such colorful and eye catching illustrations.

Not to long ago I wrote a blog on how certain apps are teaching kids how to alter their bodies to fit society’s definition of beautiful. This book does the total opposite. The joy in my heart while reading this book to Eva. To have a children’s book that talks about self acceptance and embracing all of her flaws is heaven sent in this day in age. Here is a sneak peak:

“You, you, when God made YOU, God made you all shiny and new. An incredible you, a you all your own, a you unlike anyone else ever known.”

“Cause when God made you, this much is true, the world got to meet who God already knew.”

Truth be told, God makes no mistakes. He knew everything about us even before we were thought of. Through picturesque illustrations and beautiful rhymes, this book inspires the reader to explore the works of God through their own eyes. Eva had so many questions and enjoyed every bit of her new favorite book.

“Cause when God made you, somehow God knew that the world needed someone exactly like you!”

To my knowledge this book can be purchased through Barnes & Nobles, Amazon and Target. Get your copy today…you won’t be disappointed. This book speaks to anyone from a child to an adult. It’s a must have!
