Summary: God could have made us all exactly the same, but He didn’t. And our differences are good! As His children, those called by God to belong to His family, we can actually use our differences to help each other. Here’s some more great news: There are no rules about how we look or sound to be in His family. We have a delightfully different family on purpose. Every person is made by God, in His image, and therefore is equal in value and worth.

Kids, somehow, already know this to be true. This short, colorful book (written with grade-schoolers in mind) will share the truth of God’s Word with them. The truth about how we were made with differences, how we sinned, how God rescued us, and how—if we understand that God’s diverse creation will be together in Heaven—it should motivate us to love one another on earth!

This is a beautifully made book for Christian children ages 8-12 although it could be used as young as 6 if a parent read it in shorter bursts. The point of the book is to share how God created us all as equal and in His own image.

The book is full of colour and easy to understand text. There are What do You Think sections for kids to contemplate what they are learning. There are activity sections with easy things to do to further their understanding.

Each chapter has a Big Idea that is the main takeaway of the chapter. All the text, thinking sections and activities reflect that. An example of some Big Ideas are:

  • Every person is made by God and in the image of God and therefore is equal in value and worth.
  • God loved the world so much that He sent His son Jesus to rescue it, and now we can have a relationship with God forever.
  • Every tribe, tongue, language, and nation will be in heaven together perfectly worshiping, loving and enjoying one another.

This would make a great gift for a 8-12 year old. It’s not specifically meant for girls but I think girls would enjoy it more.
