Book Description from Back Cover:
This cute and cuddly board book, inspired by The Purpose-Driven Life, let’s children know God made each one of us very special.
Little One, God Made You Special is a board book for young children. All of the adults who've looked at it have been absolutely charmed by the book. Our test subject is too young to give feedback, but this is the type of book I want my baby niece to grow up with. All of the art has the same look and style as the cover picture. I prefer illustrations like this, where the animals look more like the real thing (rather than a cartoon) yet still look warm and cuddly.
The book showed various animals interacting with their offspring in loving ways. The text stated how each of us are unique in how we look--from our chin to our grin--and that "God made you special from the start." The text is very simple so even fairly young kids should be able to follow along, and the text invites pointing to various body parts along with laughter and grins. It's a good message and lovely illustrations. I'd highly recommend this book.
If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
