God Made the World ~ Review

God Made the World
By Debbie Rivers-Moore
Illustrated by Emma Haines

God Made the World is a book intended for the youngest reader - one who can't yet read but can enjoy the hearing the story and the illustrations. This is a soft fabric book of which the front cover is crinkly and will capture your little one's attention. The story is told over 6 pages in which God's role in the creation of the world is stated. The last page states "And God made me" beneath a small mirror in which the reader can see their own face while reading this statement.

This book is washable and can be air dried which with little fingers is a good feature. The book closes with a velcro closure that secures the back to the front. There is a loop feature at the top so this book can be hung from a hook or secured to your child's stroller or high chair. At 6 inches this is a good size for little hands to hold and turn the pages with ease. The colors which are pastel fabrics with brighter colors for the images will delight children.  Each page has between 3 and 4 words so that early word association is accomplished with this book.

This book would be a perfect gift for the parents-to-be or for a book at grandma and grandpa's house. Highly recommended for church nurseries and any family with young ones. This will be a book older siblings will enjoy sharing with younger ones.

I was provided a review copy of this book by the publisher Kregel with no expectation of a positive review - all opinions expressed are my own.


About the Book:
Charming illustrations help infants and toddlers discover God's natural world, from dolphins to foxes to kittens! This squishy fabric book features crinkle cloth for sensory development and hours of baby fun. God Made the World also includes a child-safety mirror so baby can see herself and know she's a part of God's design.

For parents, a Velcro closure keeps the book shut, and a hanging tab can attach the book to a stroller, purse, or toy so it can go wherever they do. It comes packaged in a bag to keep it clean and includes a header card for easy hanging display.
