God Made You Just Right: Adorably written and beautifully illustrated

As a matter of fact, God DID make you just right! How fitting of a title to a board book full of rhymes and beautiful illustrations!


Each moment in the life of a toddler is significant and absolutely amazing. God Made You Just Right focuses on many of these activities that toddlers go through. The rhymes are super cute and flows so angelically from page to page, one idea to the next. 

The images portrayed are also not short of spectacular! I love how the story shows these children of both genders and many ethnicities through activities both inside and outside. Most importantly, the focus of how something as simple as their fingers or toes is useful in its own special way!

It’s lovely to see a children’s book guiding toddlers to be themselves and not try to be like everyone else. God made each of us differently, but His creation is perfect so we are all perfect in His eyes. That’s all that should really matter!

I would have loved reading this to my son when he was younger! Now he can read it to me! Even adults enjoy being read to! 

God Made You Just Right by Jill Roman Lord and illustrated by Amy Wummer was provided complimentary for an honest review for Worthy Publishing.

Will Max the Brave find a mouse?

Max the Brave is a kitten who loves chasing mice. Unfortunately, this kitten has no idea what a mouse is! So, this adventure takes Max through exploring and gullibility. Be a part of Max’s adventure and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway, available until October 31!

Several weeks ago, I found Max the Brave on NetGalley. When I first read this story to my six year old I used animated voices to represent various creatures and encouraged him to get excited through the storyline. Not too long ago, I was approached to be a part of the Max the Brave book tour. I did everything I could to be a part of this book tour because I knew my son would enjoy it, too. He absolutely loved this story and was thrilled when I told him we got the book in the mail! An actual book he can skim through and read all in his own now!

This fearless kitten searches for a mouse. He asks other creatures if they are mouse. He gets pointed in the right direction, when finally he approaches a big green monster looking creature. Wait, is THAT mouse?

His favorite line is “Max is a brave kitten.”

Max the Brave, by Ed Vere, is artistically and creatively assembled. It is simple for children to read without the distractions of scenery. Sometimes, a setting is too much for the main idea of the story. Lovely colors and an excellent cape to enhance Max’s bravery seals the perfection in this book.

Even as an adult and parent, I love this book. It took my son on an adventure he would never have experienced. And I thoroughly enjoyed reading it to him before he knew most of the words several weeks ago. Oh, how quickly they speed through learning to read at the first grade! Now, he can read most of it to me!
