" This is a wonderful book for any child to read. With bright, imaginative pictures on every page, Matthew weaves a story of the wonder and delight that God has for his children. This book reads like a song that is being sung of all the ways that God makes us unique. It is affirming and life giving, a beautiful book that will be enjoyed over and over again! I have purchased this book for every child in my extended family and can't wait to share it with them. Get this book today!! " said.

"The art was very whimsical and childish. The rhyme was fun to read. A few of the words they used were a little big for children in my opinion (such as “debut” and “revue”). Some of the message was neat to introduce to children – such as them being made in God’s image, God thinking of them before they knew of Him, that type of thing. However, one quote in particular I disagree with: “You being you is God’s dream coming true.” The book seemed to end on an idea of, “Be yourself and God will smile.” I personally believe that the Bible teaches that God’s design in making us is so that we will glorify Him – not just be creative and be ourselves.

"From gloriously colorful end-covers to dreamily imaginative pictures of a small child running through life, David Catrow’s images make Paul Turner’s When God Made You into an artistic delight. Which makes perfect sense, as the story tells of one small girl learning her place in God’s artistry. The tale is told with unforced rhythm and rhyme, respects its readers with well-chosen word craft, and gently repeats the theme that God chooses, sees and delights in the real you. Appropriately, the imagined child responds with imagination, creating images, delighting in ideas, and learning the wonders of who we are each made to be. Peacemakers, movers and shakers, brothers and sisters all over the world, God calls us to love one another and this beautiful book echoes the call delightfully. Highly recommended.

" This is such a great children's book. I got it for all of my nieces. " said.

" I absolutely love this children's book by Matthew Paul Turner. It contains beautiful truth that children (and all of us!) need to hear, accompanied by beautiful illustrations. I have bought this book for several of my friends' children and they have all loved it. " said.

" "God pictured your nose and all ten of your toes. The sound of your voice? God had it composed." How beautiful is that? With its outstanding artistic illustrations and poetic cadence, this lovely children's book is a reminder to young and old alike, that "God's family without you would not be the same". Enjoy every page. " said.

" Wonderful!LOVE the Illustrations and poetic beauty this books displays. I also adored the diversity of the characters portrayed and the honest look at how God creates us. Such a timely and beautiful message to have children know and understand early on their lives: They are loved, thought about, seen, dreamt about and adored by God! That we are made in the image of God and shouldn't be afraid to Glorify Him with our creativity or imagination! " said.

"I wanted to read this book because David Catrow is my FAVORITE illustrator. He can even make the preamble to the Constitution entertaining. Normally I would not pick up this book because I do not read religious books. That being said, yes God is mentioned, but no other religious stuff. And God shows up in multiple religions. This book tells a kid that they were thought out. That someone picked the personality, the likes and dislikes, etc. That it is okay to be you. The rhyming is great and has a sing song pattern that is fun and matches the wonderful illustrations by Catrow. Overall, a book I am happy to add to my collection.
