This Riot Recommendation is sponsored by When God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner, illustrated by David Catrow.
From early on, children are looking to discover their place in the world and longing to understand how their personalities, traits, and talents fit in. The assurance that they are deeply loved and a unique creation in our big universe is certain to help them spread their wings and fly.
Through playful, charming rhyme and vivid, fantastical illustrations, When God Made You inspires young readers to learn about their own special gifts and how they fit into God’s divine plan as they grow, explore, and begin to create for themselves.
‘Cause when God made YOU, somehow God knew
That the world needed someone exactly like you!
I can’t imagine growing out of picture books. They can be a joy to flip through, read to children, and admire on an artistic level. There are the new picture books you or the kids discover, and there are the vintage childhood favorites tucked away somewhere safe. Tell us in the comments below, what are your favorite picture books?
