When God Made Light by Matthew Paul Turner



Back of Book:


‘Let there be light!’ that’s what God said. And light began shining and then started to spread.” Wild and creative illustrations from top children’s illustrator David Catrow pair with Matthew Paul Turner’s lyrical verse in this message of a God-made light that cuts through darkness to bring vision and hope to all young readers. This light radiates, chasing away the shadows, providing the wonder and fun of stargazing or firefly chasing. Most important, this light appears in each child–an inner God-given spark that grows and will be used to change the world.


My Review:


This is a beautiful poetic book that tells readers all the ways that light can affect their lives. Each page describes a different way that Gods light spreads throughout the earth. The figurative language that is weaved within the pages of this book is truly stunning! The illustrations are a beautiful blend of bright and soft color. This book is a perfect gift to give for a baby shower or a graduation. The message is uplifting and a breath of fresh air.
