In Between the Pages! God Made Us Just Right by Allia Zobel Nolan Illustrated by Katy Hudson


"How come puppies get to bark, but kittens can't? Why do elephants have such long trunks when other animals don't risk tripping over their noses? What's the point of all these differences?"

                                                                                                             -From God Made Us Just Right

"God loves diversity," says Zobel Nolan. "And to see it, all you have to do is look around. Everything God made is unique and different-flowers, animals, people. What's more, if, like the animals in GOD MADE US JUST RIGHT, we have a different makeup-we're short or tall, have big feet or small ones-it's all part of God's one-of-a-kind diversity plan. We're created that way on purpose, deliberately."

God Made Us Just Right is geared toward children three to five, but one the whole family will enjoy.
