Synopsis:

YOU, you… God thinks about you.
God was thinking of 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. Knowing that they are deeply loved and a unique creation in our big universe is certain to help them spread their wings and fly.
Written in playful, charming rhyme and brought to life with vivid, fantastical illustrations, young readers will be encouraged and excited to learn about their own special gifts and how they fit into God’s divine plan as they grow, explore, and begin create for themselves.
‘Cause when God made YOU, somehow God knew
That the world needed someone exactly like you!

Review:

OH MY!

I can't even begin to explain how GORGEOUS and BEAUTIFUL this book is!

And I'm not talking about just the illustrations (which are too adorable for words,and that may make you pick up a second book, so you can frame some of them!) - but about the CONTENT! Check out the sample below"

Isn't that EXACTLY what we as parents want our children to truly do?

To fly with all their creativity, expression, personality and see where it will take them, knowing the God is there in every moment? Even when we as parents can't be?

The book may be made for ages 2-7, but Miss Grace,at almost 10 (EEK!) was just as entranced with it. She declared it "a love song from parents to their kids" (I know, sometimes how she sees the 'big picture' SCARES me!), and it truly IS. It is about our (and God's) unconditional love and how that can spur our children to do things, be who they are, and to embrace life with everything in their essence!

If you are going to buy ONE children's book this year, THIS IS THE BOOK to buy! 

Give it was gifts, keep a copy and share, share, share!
EVERY child needs to read/have this book read to them!

So don't walk, run and pick up your copy today!
