When God Made Light, written Matthew Paul Turner and illustrated by David Catrow, is in the same appealing format as When God Made You by the same authors. This book contains delightful illustrations coupled with lyrical verse revealing that God made light that penetrates the darkness to bring hope and joy to life. As I was reading this book to my grandchildren, one of my granddaughters started reading along with me. Here is a sample of the content,

When God made light, a universe lit up, a dazzling display of big, shiny stuff. And all that light – every bright golden hue – is the very same light that God put inside you.

My granddaughters were fascinated with the colorful and creative illustrations,

This is an engaging book giving children an appreciation for God’s gift of light as well as encouraging them to let their light shine,

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

(I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review).
