Love the bright colors, and all the boys and girls doing different activities that you and your little one can talk about! There is sweet rhyming text to keep their attention, with a great lesson that God made each of us the right way, he knew what he was doing.
A great book for that little one in your life, you will not be disappointed.
I received this book through WorthyKids/Ideals and was not required to give a positive review
My wife read this book to our boys (at the time of this review, ages eight and five) and they both loved it, so I can easily see this book working well for ages three to ten (under three as a great "reading" story). It is short enough to be an easy bedtime story, and it's rhyming mechanisms help keep the attention of children. My wife loves the rhyming, art, and pictures. Her greatest concern is that while the book is diverse in its portrayal of different races, it altogether ignores the condition of the Fall - handicaps and illnesses.
Parents with children that have sickness or any handicaps (such as a wheelchair) may find their children more discouraged than encouraged by the book. This could be remedied by a simple illustration showing how someone in a wheelchair could sing or someone who is mute could play a game instead. Overall, though, I feel that such a pressure on the artist and writer is unnecessary if that is not their target audience. That said, the book could have a wider appeal if it were added.
It should be noted this book contains a clearly Christian message. It does quote Jewish literature, so if some minor alterations were made it could be applicable to a wider religious base as well. Otherwise, it is a great book but not the first pick off the shelf to take home...

It's so hard being young these days. Of course, it has always been hard, as I know too well from my younger years. It seems like the bullying and the judgements are getting worse and worse, though, and it makes me sad. Children are having a tougher time being comfortable with who God made them to be, and I'd be lying if I didn't say the same about myself. It's a struggle, and I'm grateful for simple books like this to remind us that God made us just the way we are.
I want my children to know that God is with them, and He knew what He was doing when they were formed the way they are. I want them to find comfort in that fact, and I want to find comfort in that fact myself. People HURT us, and instead of insulting myself or them insulting themselves over qualities about ourselves that can't be changed, I want us to turn to God, and thank Him for His marvelous design, even when it doesn't seem so marvelous. ;)
"You may not be like other kids-
that's not your job to do.
But no one else can do the job
of being you like you!"
Of course, this book is really a cheerful, sweet book, since it doesn't even mention bullying or anything negative, nor have I discussed any of that with my children(in connection with this particular book). I want reading it to quietly give them the strength to turn to God. It's also great for the littlest people to just learn about body parts, and would make a great book for reading, with breaks for tickles and cuddles. (The book does deal more with body parts than "quirky" traits, like my social anxiety. Also, depending on the child you're reading to, you might want to change the words a bit. The overall message still perfectly applies to every child, but if the child doesn't have use of his/her legs, then you might not want to read how God gave them super strong legs to run and kick and play. The same goes for the other parts mentioned within the book.)
I like the simplicity, yet also beauty of this book so much that I'm putting it in my "Bible Class" bag for the 2 and 3 year old class I help my mama with. (We rotate 3 months on, 3 off, so I haven't tried it with them just yet.) I have read it to my children, though, and they enjoyed it. The story is lovely, and so are the illustrations. It's a great little book to add to the reading line-up.
