The God Made series of tiny board books is a sweet and irresistible introduction that does just that by introducing first words to toddlers while sharing Gods role as creator with them.Each page features a bright photograph on a white background accompanied by the text God made along with the name of the object shown.In God Made My Body a cast of multi-cultural babies present a variety of fun positions and expressions to illustrate the body part spoken of.God made my arms, is accompanied with a chubby baby lifting his arms in what seems to be praise to the Lord.Its well known that board books featuring pictures of babies are favourites of the 02 year-old set, and that has certainly proved true with my own children. My 4 month old had such a look of concentration on her face when my husband read God Made My Body to her.Adding to the appeal of the series for parents of faith is the inclusion of a section of scripture at the end of each book that supports Gods work of creation in the areas focused on in each title. A relevant verse or two is given in the NIrV, a popular Bible version for young children. Not many board books can boast the inclusion of scripture!After reading these to my own children I can say with some certainty that these little books will be received with joy from infants to 5-year-olds and possibly beyond once reading skills develop. My baby listened raptly and then tried to gum the book, my 2-year-old pointed to pictures and discussed the illustrations and my 5-year-old read the book to her little sisters, guided by the refrain of God made paired with the photograph.There are many board books introducing collections of first words to the tiniest of readers. What makes these titles indispensable for parents introducing their little ones to the wonders of the world is the emphasis upon Gods creation of the universe; something that Ive never found in similarly styled titles.
