God Made Boys and Girls
God Made Boys and Girls helps children understand that their gender is a gift from the God who made them and loves them. The story begins as the girls and boys at Grace Christian School are discussing if boys will always be boys and girls will always be girls. Their teacher explains that God gives each of us the gift of being male or female before we are born, and that you continue to be a boy or a girl whether you like to climb trees or play house, play tag or color pictures, cause a ruckus or sit quietly.
In a world where there is so much confusion about gender and identity, pastor and best-selling author Marty Machowski shares the simple, clear truth that all of us are made in God's image as either male or female and what God made is very good! Included at the back of the book is a special section just for parents and caregivers that gives biblical guidance and help as they have this important conversation with their children.
My thoughts: This is a wonderful book to spark conversations with your children on the topic of gender! In a rapidly changing world, young children are exposed to a lot more questions regarding gender than I remember from when I was a young kid. This picture book does an excellent job of outlining God's gift of making male and female. How it is okay to be a girl who is good at sports or to be a boy who likes the arts. There are discussion questions in the back, if parents want to delve into the topic more. The nice thing about this book is that you can use it to introduce the topic and then build on it as your child grows and asks more questions.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. This is my Honest review.
