God Made Me Unique: Helping Children See Value in Every Person by Joni and Friends (Contributor), Trish Mahoney (Illustrator) , Joni Eareckson Tada (Foreword)

God Made Me Unique helps parents and caregivers teach children that God creates every person in the image of God and each individual has tremendous value, regardless of his or her appearance or abilities. The story is set in a classroom where a new student is introduced who has a disability and his classmates learn to ask questions and gain an understanding about their new friend. This book will help eliminate fear and misconceptions about those who have special needs and emphasizes that every person deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. The back of the book has additional information and resources to equip parents to talk with their children about this important subject.


Joni and Friends

Joni and Friends is an organization that accelerates Christian outreach in the disability community. Founded in 1979, their mission is to communicate the gospel and equip Christ-honoring churches worldwide to evangelize and disciple people affected by disability. The organization authors numerous books including titles such as the Beyond Suffering Bible, Real Families, Real Needs, and a series of church resources entitled The Irresistible Church.
My Review


What a wonderful little read for your young one, they are usually accepting of children that are different, and this book helps to show, with beautiful illustrations, examples.
Along with a story, and with Christian values, showing children to treat others with respect and kindness.
I think that every parent should have this book to share with their little ones, if we start early to show differences, children are really accepting, and this is a great resource.
I loved that there is a guidance for parents in the back called Four Ways to Help Your Child, a don’t miss area for guidance.

I received this book through Read With Audra, and was not required to give a positive review.
