Great children’s books are able to join a sweet story with relatable illustrations. Only God Can Make a Kitten written by Rhonda Gowler Greene and Illustrated by Laura J. Bryant accomplishes both of those things. The simplicity of the idea is based on the Bible verse Genesis 1:31; God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Reading it will help encourage families to step outside into God’s creation to explore and learn about the beauty of the world.
This book explores the natural world that surrounds us. As a little boy and his sister explore the world they live in, their Mama teaches them that only God can make a seed, a bird, the rain, a flower, the ocean, a plum, a tree, a stone, a kitten, the snow, a star, and best of all YOU!
The illustrations are sweet and complete. They span the pages with pleasing colors and uplifting images. Family images of adventure and wonder. The pastel color scheme is pleasing to the eye and calming to the soul.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
