3 Stars Out Of 5
great little picture book for children
May 23, 2011
As a father of four girls (currently ages 6 - 23 months), I'm constantly keeping an eye out for good Christian kids' books. Every toddler loves a boardbook, and the "God Made" series by Michael Vander Klipp, are excellent books for little hands.
The books are colorful, with a rainbow "handle" of sorts, that fits little fingers nicely. Each small page (and the book is small, measuring apx. 5 by 4 inches) has a beautiful picture and a word. "God Made Frogs" with a picture of frogs. "God Made Birds" with a picture of birds. The pictures are clear and sharp, and the colors in the book are bright.
The books have a simple God-ward message. There are other books with animals and natural objects in them. These books focus on the fact that God made the things we see. A little heart can begin to see God's hand behind everything their eye discovers.
At the end of each book, a pertinent Bible verse is shared. Job. 12:7-9 for this book. The Scripture verse is taken from the New International Reader's Version to be simple for young children. Three other books are available in the series: "God Made Food", "God Made the World" and "God Made My Body".
The books seem as durable as any boardbook, and they include a spiritual message. I recommend these books for little children particularly ages 18 months through 3 years.
