There is a precious little boy that I know who through no fault of his own has been abandoned by his parents. That fact has left a visible scar on him that just begs to be healed. That sweet boy desperately needs to know that he is special.

That little boy isn't alone. Every child needs to know that they are special. They are special to the One that made them regardless of their circumstances. They are special because God Himself made them that way.

Little One, God Made You Special is a cute little board book that affirms that fact. The darling little animal mommas and babies take the reader through an account of just why they are special. Everyone is special because they were made unique by God. From their tiny nose clear down to their wiggly, squiggly toes each person is perfectly made.

I am loving these adorable books based on The Purpose Driven Life. That book made a large impact on my life and I think these books will set a foundation for your little one to build upon. If you've not yet read the first book, Little One, God Loves You, you should. It's never too early to begin teaching your children how special and how loved they are by God.

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 7/27/2016)

Little One, God Made You Special is a sweet board book written by Rick Warren's daughter, Amy Warren Hilliker. The cute, warm illustrations are by Polona Lovsin.

Little One, God Made You Special is short and to the point - a book written in rhyme, reminding them that God made them special, not like anyone else. It is a good length for babies and toddlers, who generally have short attention spans.

One thing I do want to point out is that the book does reference the child's toes, and as the friend of a mom who has a child who had a leg amputation, I just wanted to state that for the if your little one does not have toes, you may want to choose to go with a different book. I know that may seem odd to point out, but I just wanted to be clear for anyone who might be curious.

Little One, God Made You Special is a cute little book and I look forward to reading it many times with my little one.

Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book to review as part of the Blog Z Blog Squad Review team. I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

As a mom and educator I value reading at every age group... yes even those new born babies! So much happens in those little heads when they hear books being read to them.

I love board books that have animals and rhyme so this was a winner. As you turn each page you see a different animal baby with their mama. The pictures and rhymes are sure to make you and your little one smile.

My biggest thing I enjoy is the message which speaks so much truth, God Made US Special! God has made each of us with a purpose and we each have unique abilities. This book is a great one to add to your library to help your kids learn at a young age that they are loved by God and are SPECIAL! (Posted on 4/27/2016)

I am a very big proponent of reading aloud to children from the time they are babies. There's just something about cuddling up in a rocking chair, a sofa, or even on the bed and reading together.
One of our favorite things, when my kids were little, was cuddle snuggle love time. I would randomly yell, "It's cuddle snuggle love time!" Then everyone would hurry to my bed as fast as their little feet could take them. It was a race.
No matter what, I always said, "I'm the winner!"
I was. I got to hold little ones close to my heart as all four piled all over me.

This book brought sweet memories of reading with my little ones.
I love books that highlight how God made each child precious and unique.

Little One, God Made You Special has adorable illustrations that made me want to hold a little one and read aloud again... pointing out the words, the colors, the flowers, the leaves... all the things we do when we share a book with a loved little one.

It's a sturdy little board book with thick pages that a toddler can turn easily. Turning the page is one of the skills little ones must learn in order to read. Is it not?

The book is filled with loving parents and babies— bears, rabbits, ducks, deer, and squirrels.

I like this little book a lot.
My babies are teens and young adults now.
This book will one day find its way to a beloved grandbaby or a new mama.
It would make a lovely shower gift, and it's quite reasonable at just $6.99 retail.

Thank you Zonderkidz for this review copy. (Posted on 4/25/2016)

As most parents, I believed my babies were perfect even when they made messes. In Little One, God Made You Special the mama and papa animals talk to their little ones in an adoring way. They show them how they're special from their tiny chins to their big hearts. I like books like this one because I believe children are a special gift and need to know that God created them for a reason. We can't encourage our children too early or too often. Polona Lovsin's illustrations are lovely and add joy to this sweet book.
I received Little One, God Made You Special in exchange for a fair review.

“Little One, God Made You Special” was sent to me by Zonderkidz – a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.
“Little One, God Made You Special” is a Christian children’s board book. It was written by Amy Warren Hiliker and illustrated by Polona Lovsin.
I like the way Amy Warren Hiliker uses rhythm and rhyme to hold attention, as does Polona Lovsin with her colorful and playful pictures. In this little board book, we see baby animals hearing from their mommies and daddies how they are so special to God.
I would recommend this book to tiny tots, early readers, teachers, librarians, parents, grandparents, and all others who read to little ones.

I love these sweet little board books that I have been reviewing, lately. They each remind me of springtime. Great little books with the most beautiful illustrations! Little One, God Made You Special is a sweet book about a family of different types of animals making it known to their little ones how special indeed they are and who made it all possible. With beautiful times rhyming prose the author does a great job reinforcing the illustrations. Sweet book geared for ages 4-8.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.

I have long been a fan of books for children . . . what could be better than a story which is well-told with colorful pictures??? So, when Zonderkidz invited me to review one of their new books for children, I was very happy to say, "Yes!". Today I'm sharing the book Little One, God Made You Special . . . just the title alone is enough to make me like this book.

I love how Little One, God Made You Special is available in a sturdy board-book format . . . great book for little ones to enjoy!
Illustrations are warm, cute, full of fun and love . . . and I LOVE all the different animals with their babies! My two-year old grandson loves this, too!
Simple message about how God created each child perfect from the start!
Zonderkidz says; "Little One, God Made You Special, written by Amy Warren Hilliker and inspired by the New York Times #1bestseller, The Purpose-Driven Life, is a cute and cuddly board book which lets children know God made each one of us very special."

I am happy to see a simple story for little ones which combines wonderful illustrations of animals with a message even the youngest will enjoy, understand and remember. Great book to give grandparents a starting place to build upon about how their grandchildren are special and created by God! Fun text . . . "No one has your silly laugh when you splash in bubble baths. No one has your perfect chin that sits below your perfect grin." (Of course the splashing portion is illustrated with a momma duck splashing with a duckling and bunnies and mice parents/children are illustrated with the perfect chin and grin.) Cute book, cute story . . . great for snuggling at bedtime - or any time! (Posted on 4/12/2016)
