God Made Me Unique
God Made Me Unique helps Christian parents and caregivers teach children that God creates every person in the image of God and each individual has tremendous value, regardless of his or her appearance or abilities. The story is set in a classroom where a new student is introduced who has a disability and his classmates learn to ask questions and gain an understanding about their new friend.
God Made Me Unique will help eliminate fear and misconceptions about those who have special needs and emphasizes that every person deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. The inviting illustrations and rhyming prose make this a fun and engaging read for even little children to help them understand the complexity of a vast variety of disabilities and that each person was made by God and deserves to be treated with love and respect. Children often have many questions about disabilities thanks to their curious minds so the back of the book has additional information and resources to equip parents to talk with their children about this important subject.
My thoughts: When a new student joins the class, the teacher has an opportunity to talk about how we are all made unique. My children have had questions about those who have to use a wheelchair or crutches, etc., so I thought that this book was an excellent one to read to them about some of the many different ways God has made people unique. It goes over a few examples, like those who are deaf or have to be careful of being over stimulated by noise, to name a few.
Side note, I love the rhyming text! This is an excellent book to read to young children!
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
