When God Made YouWhen God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As a mother of three, one of whom is special needs, I love coming across children’s books with such a positive message that is delivered in a way that will actually reach the child reading it. My son (9) and I read through the book together. He was drawn to the bright colors and remarked that it was rare to see a book with a child who wasn’t white, and he liked that a lot. He helps me review children’s books when they come in but rarely requests to look at/read them on his own at a later time. He has asked if we can donate this book to the school library instead of the local public library so more kids might see it. We agree that at times the writing seems to lack a bit of polish but we don’t think it’s enough to detract too much from the overall experience of the book. We love the artistry and message! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review with no requirement of the review being public or positive.
