A Few Reviews:
“This delightful picture book continues with the same endearing young sisters featured in When God Made You, which was also illustrated by David Catrow. The whimsical drawings will delight children while the profound message sinks into their hearts. The light itself is like a character, first shown by the sunlight streaming into the room as the girls pursue art on the floor. Their sweet cat and dog participate too. The text talks about when light began and how it expanded and glimmered, making dark stop being dark. It moves from rejoicing in light’s creation to sharing that God put this light inside each person. It explores what we can do in the sun and when the moon shines. Other sources of light are included. The assurance that shadows are no match for God’s light. “The day you were born, God said, ‘Let there be light!’ So beam light the sun; glimmer like a star. And wherever you go, dark will stop being dark.” I enjoyed the book, but some of the rhymes seem forced.”
