    Justin and Lindsey Holcomb do a great job presenting the Gospel in this children's book. The theme throughout is being made in God's image rather than the image that the world assumes you should have.

    The story is very relatable to children as the setting takes stage on a field trip to the zoo with a classroom. Throughout the entire book, students ask questions and the answers are given by the teacher or other characters. They quote scripture as well to help children lean on the word of God as the ultimate authority.

    The book concludes with a few additional resources.

    - cute descriptions of several zoo animals

    - letter to parents and caregivers with statistics on body image for young children and encouragement to battle the world's perception

    - several scripture references for God's promises to his people

    The illustrations are beautiful and engaging for young children.

    My only negative comment regarding the book is its length. It is a very long, detailed story that would be difficult to keep the attention of very young children. My 5 yr old daughter enjoyed it but seemed to get bored with the length.

    I received a pdf copy of this book from New Growth Press in exchange for an honest review.

    God Made Me in His Image is another title in the God Made Me Series. This book presents God as our creator, and shares insight into God's loving design in the creation of each of our bodies. Each book in this series includes a section filled with biblical guidance for parents and offers additional information and resources which aid in discussion with your child in relationship to the topic addressed in the text.

    While this complimentary book was provided for review by New Growth Press, no other compensation was given. All remarks are my personal and honest opinions.

    What I like about this book:

    Illustrations are realistic, child friendly, showing children of different ethnicities, print is clear, some lines are in different colors for emphasis.

    The book helps children remember that God calls all that He created, "Good." and that they are a part of God's creation, even made in His image.

    Teaching about who God is, His intention in creation.

    Quotes scripture: Psalm 139

    Natural conversations at the zoo and learning about the animals' design- so cool! Very well-chosen facts to enhance the concepts.

    Animals with disabilities are kept safe in the zoo. Connection for kids with disabilities.

    Learning Concept: "Life is beautiful even when it has hard things in it!"

    Africa's Little five animals are hidden in the pages of the book. Plus the six animals in the book have more information as an extra learning aspect of the book at the end.

    Dear Parents note and suggestions to discuss at the end of the book. Well done as a tool to help use the book effectively.

    Growth Mindset with guiding principles and statements. So healthy

    Teaching Connections:

    Vocabulary: Majesty, Dignity (worthy of honor and respect), Sanctuary (for animals), predators, leucism (her skin doesn't make colors), parasites

    Big Five African animals

    God's Design for His creation

    Animal research projects

    Research on disabilities- that when someone is blind their other senses are better.

    What I wonder:

    the book is written for ages 8-11, that would be grades 3-5 or 6. I think it might be more like ages 7-9-year-olds or grades 2-4. As a colorful picture book.

    The book has lots of text included it would be a long read aloud. I don't know the size of the physical book either.

    What will kids who read the parent notes at the end think about the concerns raised, I don't know another way to do this, but it could make for some interesting conversations.

    Thankful to partner with New Growth Press and read a pdf of the book in advance.
