Children’s Corner: God Made The Sun & God Made The Moon

7 Sep

God Made the Sun is a celebration of God’s gift of daytime to the world. Beginning with the first rays of sunlight and moving through the day, this book reminds little ones that God’s love shines on us just as the sun shines on the earth. With its lyrical rhythm, sweet illustrations, and novelty die-cut feature, the book will serve as a welcome reminder of God’s presence in our lives.

God Made the Moon is a celebration of God’s gift of nighttime to the world. Beginning with the first sleepy yawn and ending with a bedtime prayer, this book reminds little ones that God’s love shines on us just as the moon shines on the earth. With its lyrical rhythm, sweet illustrations, and novelty die-cut feature, the book will be a welcome addition to any child’s bedtime rituals.

My Impressions:

God Made The Sun and God Made The Moon written by Mary Manz Simon and illustrated by Lizzie Walkley are two books perfect for introducing your toddler to the concepts of day and night with the Sun and the Moon as reminders of what each part of the day holds for them. These two books also reinforce the truth that God has made everything and it is good! With rhymes and colorfully detailed illustrations, these books will soon become favorites with your child. Read God Made The Sun in the morning to welcome all the fun the day holds and read God Made The Moon at bedtime or snuggle and prayer time. These two books are cute, cute, cute editions for the preschool set!

Recommended.

Audience: children ages 2-5.
