God Made Us Different by Lindsey Coker is a delightful children’s picture book that tells the story of a group of classmates who all come from diverse backgrounds and enjoy the ways that make them different. It is told through a lovely rhyme narration that is sure to bring a ray of sunshine into the reader’s world. Lora Look, the illustrator, creates a vivid and realistic world of colors that splash across the pages, inviting the reader to stay a moment longer and to take another look at her creation as it imbues the soul. The expressions that the children have on their faces are so happy, with smiles and goodness, that it makes you want to smile as well and make as many new friends as you can.
Lindsey Coker’s God Made Us Different is an essential children’s picture book that truly needs to find a home on every child’s shelf, if not every schoolroom. The last sentence really struck a chord deep within myself. But I’d like those treasured words to be a surprise for readers. In a time when we find ourselves needing and looking for support, friendship, understanding, and love, God Made Us Different will help to be that guiding path to find those vital elements that we all crave and need. The message it provides is one that everyone should hear, not just children, but adults, especially. Hopefully one day the world will be as united as the children in God Made Us Different.
