Publisher's Description

Bodies can be confusing and sometimes embarrassing to children. But with this simply told, beautifully illustrated children's book by Justin and Lindsey Holcomb, parents can teach kids the truth about how God made their bodies in his image—and the human body is good. 

One day, a group of students and their teacher travel to a zoo safari park to learn all about the different animals. During a fun jeep ride around the park, the guide shares fascinating information about lions, rhinoceroses, elephants, buffalo, and more, pointing out distinctive characteristics and information about each animal's body and how those qualities make the animals special. The teacher helps the children reflect on their own body image and how they were created uniquely in God's image.

A part of the God Made Me series, God Made Me in His Image invites young children to ponder the doctrine of creation, learning how God made them in his image and how truth influences the ways they think and feel about their bodies.

This powerful, colorful book addresses the topic of body image from a Christian perspective, to help children understand their feelings, provide information about the topic, and offer extensive, practical strategies to parents. Letters and notes to parents or caregivers are included in the back of the book to help facilitate discussion.
