Some 6th grade students and I had the opportunity to read When God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner and submit a review for Blogging for Books. The students enjoyed doing this activity because they liked the sense of giving their honest feedback to a publisher and author. 

The students loved the inspirational message of the story. They said it made them feel special and important. Henry said, "It makes you feel like you can make a difference in the world." Elena said, "It was so truthful, about how God loves you and made you unique." Students enjoyed the vibrant illustrations and the whimsical animals and birds. 

The students found parts of the story to be a bit repetitive, and said that this would make a good bedtime story because it is rhyming and soothing. They said that it seemed to be for an audience younger than them. They said they'd recommend for toddlers through early elementary school. 

We thought the book was uplifting with a good message and fun artwork.
