Most children’s books are perfectly lovely and have stories that are interesting, fun or educational. I am always looking for children’s books though, that have that extra dynamic of building faith in God or encouraging godly hearts and behaviors. A few years ago, the early children’s Christian books just didn’t have the same quality standards as secular children’s publishing.
That has changed with the team of Paul Turner and David Catrow. I was excited when offered the opportunity to review their newest book, When God Made Light. They previously teamed up for the picture book When God Made You. The books have a very similar feel and look to them. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. In fact, Catrow is becoming one of my favorite illustrators.
