Little One, God Made You Special, written by Amy Warren Hilliker and inspired by the New York Times #1bestseller The Purpose-Driven Life, is a cute and cuddly board book that lets children know God made each one of us very special.
Amy Hilliker is the daughter of Rick Warren, author of the best-selling book, The Purpose Driven Life. Amy resides in California with her husband.
There is a precious little boy that I know who through no fault of his own has been abandoned by his parents. That fact has left a visible scar on him that just begs to be healed. That sweet boy desperately needs to know that he is special.
That little boy isn't alone. Every child needs to know that they are special. They are special to the One that made them regardless of their circumstances. They are special because God Himself made them that way.
Little One, God Made You Special is a cute little board book that affirms that fact. The darling little animal mommas and babies take the reader through an account of just why they are special. Everyone is special because they were made unique by God. From their tiny nose clear down to their wiggly, squiggly toes each person is perfectly made.
I am loving these adorable books based on The Purpose Driven Life. That book made a large impact on my life and I think these books will set a foundation for your little one to build upon. If you've not yet read the first book, Little One, God Loves You, you should. It's never too early to begin teaching your children how special and how loved they are by God.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Little One, God Made You Special is a cardboard chunky book. Pre-School aged youngsters will love this quick read. The message of this book is: they are perfect just they way God made them and no one is like them. What better message could you give a 2-4 year old. The rhyming meter is perfect for the young as well. The illustrations are bold and colorful with cute forest friends throughout the book. This is another book heading to the church nursery.

I was given the opportunity through booklookbloggers review program to give my honest opinion of Little One, God Made You Special by Amy Warren Hilliker, illustrated by Palona Lovsin for a free copy of the book.
I have to say that this book caught my interest right from the cover. It is really cute with the momma and baby bear. The illustrations are so adorable with mom and baby animals on each page. There are deer, ducks, rabbits, mice and more.
This book teaches on how every little one is special. No one is exactly a like. From special tiny noses, squiggly toes, silly laughs, perfect chins and perfect grins. Our little ones are perfect and no one is like them.
My almost 3 year old said I love this book, I will keep it forever. He wants me to read it to him before bed. He loves to see the baby animals and he likes the rhyming words. I would highly recommend this book for all young ages. Especially toddlers. It is a board book so it is sturdy enough for the really little ones.
This board book will entertain your little ones for hours! The pictures are so sweet. It is just adorable and sweet with a very gentle story appropriate for young children. The little boy I baby sit has fallen in love with this book. He is really interested in animals and all of a sudden has begun to ask me to read to him. Where a few weeks ago he couldn't sit still for story time, now he hands me book after book, squealing in delight as I read and let her turn the pages. He loves when I make the animal sounds and begs me to read the same book over and over again.
This is the sweetest book, I've bought several for baby gifts, and the parents have loved it. I highly recommend this to all
Good message, lovely illustrations, and invites interaction

"Little One, God Made You Special" is a board book for young children. All of the adults who've looked at it have been absolutely charmed by the book. Our test subject is too young to give feedback, but this is the type of book I want my baby niece to grow up with. All of the art has the same look and style as the cover picture. I prefer illustrations like this, where the animals look more like the real thing (rather than a cartoon) yet still look warm and cuddly.
The book showed various animals interacting with their offspring in loving ways. The text stated how each of us are unique in how we look--from our chin to our grin--and that "God made you special from the start." The text is very simple so even fairly young kids should be able to follow along, and the text invites pointing to various body parts along with laughter and grins. It's a good message and lovely illustrations. I'd highly recommend this book.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher through BookLook.
