YOU, you... God thinks about you. God was thinking of you long before your debut.
From early on, children are looking to discover their place in the world and longing to understand how their personalities, traits, and talents fit in.
Knowing that they are deeply loved and a unique creation in our big universe is certain to help them spread their wings and fly.
Written in playful, charming rhyme and brought to life with vivid, fantastical illustrations, young readers will be encouraged and excited to learn about their own special gifts and how they fit into God's divine plan as they grow, explore, and begin create for themselves.
'Cause when God made YOU, somehow God knew That the world needed someone exactly like you!
Powerful words, especially for children with special needs. This book is so beautifully written and illustrated. The words went straight to my heart. Through this book, I was able to open dialogue with my child about how special she is. God didn’t make a mistake when he made her little body. Even though her body works differently than other children her age, God had a plan and he knew that the world needed her.

That the world needed someone exactly like you!
Sometimes as parents to a special needs child, we question God. We want to know what was His plan and His purpose. Seeing these words, reading them to my child, they were a balm to my soul. God doesn’t make mistakes and He has plans for my beautiful family. God had a plan when he chose to give me a child that was differently-abled.
This is a delightful book that your child will love. The illustrations by David Catrow are absolutely stunning, imaginative and quirky…exactly like my little one.
If you’re looking for a Children’s book that has a good message and more substance to it, I would strongly suggest this one.
It is so important that our children know that they are loved by God and that they are special to Him.
This book is well suited for children ages 3-8. Important to note for children’s books, that the book is hardcover with paper pages. I would love to see a board book edition for the younger audiences in the future as I can see this being a well-worn and loved addition to a child’s library.
