I See the Colors God Made

I See the Colors God Made by Laura Ann Miller is a lovely board book for infants and toddlers, teaching basic colors as well as basic biblical principles.

The simple, straight forward text begins: "I see the colors God made! God made red..." and a vivid photograph of a strawberry appears on the opposite side of the page. At the bottom, 1 John 4:7 is quoted ("Dear friends, let us love one another...") The subsequent pages tell us God made blue (alongside a photo of a clear blue sky with a bright kite in one corner), green (a wet leaf), orange (pumpkins), yellow (flowers), and purple (grapes). Then:

"God made every color, and God made me!"

This final page offers a place to slip your child's photo inside the book and recite Ephesians 2:10 ("For we are God's masterpiece...")

What I Like: Everything! I love that this book (and the others in this series) introduce infants and toddlers to God's word in a fun way. They also provide basic biblical principles, and - in this case - some basic preschool learning, too. The photos are beautiful, and what child doesn't love to see his or her photo in a book?

What I Dislike: The book is short, 14 pages long. I wish it were just a bit longer.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: Infant - toddler.
