Book Review: Only God Can Make a Kitten

Only God Can Make a Kitten
By Rhonda Gowler Greene
Illustrated by Laura J. Bryant

What an adorable book! This 32-page picture book begs to be read to a little one while snuggling on your lap. With sweet rhyming text, the soft and tender illustrations are the perfect compliment! A mother and her two children romp and explore the outdoors. Climbing on rocks, swimming in the sea, and discovering a newly sprouted seed, every step of they way they conclude that only God can make each one. (After reading this, I’m itching to go outside and play with children and worship God in the beauty of his creation.)

What I Like
I like the affirmation of truth this teaches little ones that God is the great designer and creator. I especially like the fun word-play and sense of wonder the text brings. For example: “Mama, look! A tiny sprout! Who made this sprig of spring pop out? He who knows our every need. Only God can make a seed.” A great read-aloud. But even more than this, the beautiful and soft illustrations are filled with joy and discovery. And of course, it includes the fact all cat-lovers will adore…“Mama, look! A little cat! Who makes it purr and curl like that? He loves animals, it is written. Only God can make a kitten.” A treasure I highly recommend for many times of reading together and sharing the truth about Creator God.

-Thanks, BookLook Bloggers for another wonderful free book in exchange for my honest review!
