Book of the Week [Only God Can Make a Kitten]

This is one of those children's books that will forever be on my shelf. It is one of our all-time favorite children's books. It begins with Genesis 1:31, continues with adorable rhyme dialogue between a mother and her son and ends with poetry.

This little boy in the book is curious about the world he explores with his mom and asks lots of questions beginning with, "Mama, look!" But it's the mother's response that amazes me...

"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."

My favorite is the poem at the end when mom explains the world around him,
"God shapes the birds, the plums, and trees. 
He makes the rain and salty seas. 
Ancient stones he molds just right. 
And distant stars that shine so bright. 
God makes seeds to grow and grow. 
He paints the flowers, blows winter's snow. 
God fashions fish. 
Kittens too. 
Yes, God makes wondrous things it's true. 
But best of all, God made YOU!"

It's a wonderful book that I highly recommend adding to your forever library. It teaches. It's thought provoking. The illustrations are wonderful. The theology is biblically sound.
