Reviews

Brilliant! Wonderfully Made by Danika Cooley captures the wonder of our creation with great accuracy and yet makes it so understandable to young readers. She tells about conception to birth in an amazing captivating journey. By drawing in the young reader, she invites them to experience the best journey of all. This is a great book for an expecting parent to read to their expecting children.

Wonderfully Made: God's Story of life is a new hardback picture book which looks at how a baby is formed and shaped, before birth.
The pregnancy is taken on a week by week basis, including that there isn't a baby in weeks 1 and 2. For each week or in some cases, set of weeks, there is a description of the size of the baby, for example, the size of an apple or a peach. There is also detail about development of organs; what the baby would be doing and a little about what the mother will notice, for example,
"It felt like I had a little butterfly in my belly."

Each page has a relevant Bible text, taken from the English Standard Version and is illustrated by pictures of a child at the relevant stage of development. The pictures are accessible and clear but not scary for the squeamish.

I particularly liked
-there was honesty about conception and a very clear placing of this within marriage.
-the excitement around a new child and that the glory is clearly attributed to God.
-the comparisons of the size of the baby. A baby the size of a pencil sharpener made me laugh.
-the plentiful illustrations related to the text.
-the detail about development which would especially appeal to a family where a baby is expected.
-the lack of gory detail around birth although acknowledging that it is a difficult and painful process.
-referring to the new birth.
I liked this book and highly recommend it. It should be in the library of every Christian family.
