By: Matthew Paul Turner  illustrated by David Catrow

“YOU, you…God thinks about you. God was thinking about you long before your debut.”

From early on, children are looking to discover their place in the world and longing to understand how their personalities, traits and talents fit in.

My Review:

Both my son and I enjoyed reading this delightful book together.  The vivid illustrations and the charming lyrical rhyming  phrases makes this book one that you will want on your book shelf to pull out again and again to read with your child.

Every child needs to know they are special, and loved.  This sweet book helps children see how they are not only God’s masterpiece, but designed with great care, and thought about long before their debut.

This book is ideal for pre-school age children. However, even young elementary age children will delight in the story and the beautiful illustrations.

I give this book 5 stars

  1. This sounds like a great book not only for families but for a short children’s worship topic/story as a group at school or church etc.
    My favorite childhood book growing up was the Berenstain Bear books. One of my favorite books to read to my kids is “My daddy and I”.
