I loved this book. The illustrations by Cornelius Van Wright and his wife, Ying-Hwa Hu are delightful. Author Dorena Williamson presents her theme (we are all fearfully and wonderfully made) in a way that is winsome, realistic and easily understandable to young children. God must love color! It is part of the wonder of His creation: in plants, food, the world around us, and people. We shouldn’t strive to be “color blind.” Instead we should notice and admire the different colors of our skin, hair and eyes. Is your hair red, brown or blonde? Are your eyes brown or green? Is your skin chocolate, vanilla or caramel? God made us ColorFull, not ColorLess. All of our colors are beautiful and good. That’s the way God made us to be and everything He created is good.
At the end of the book the author has included a Bible verse with suggested Scripture readings and thought questions that will be useful for parents and teachers who want to further explore and reinforce the topic.
Verdict: Five stars! This book will definitely go in our church’s Little Free Library collection. To order, follow the link below:
