Little One, God Made You

Written by Amy Warren Hilliker (daughter of Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life), Little One, God Made You is short and simple. The theme is that every child is a unique creation of God and that "God made you to love you, little one."

What I Like: The illustrations by Carol Thompson show babies and toddlers of various ethnicity playing, sleeping, cuddling...often with a parent. The illustrations are playful and colorful. The message will inspire good self-esteem and a loving feeling toward the Lord. The book is only 10 pages, which means even the youngest child should be able to sit through a reading

What I dislike: The text is in rhyme, but the rhyming isn't perfect in one spot.

Overall Rating: Very Good.

Age Appeal: 4 and under.
