In this rhyming adventure book, children discover that no matter where they go or what they do, they are loved. From morning to night, through chaos and challenges, God's unconditional loving care is with them every step of the way. In the end, readers are encouraged to embrace who God made them to be.
One reviewer wrote: “I have an autistic son and wow! I knew this book is geared toward kids and they absolutely need this book (I'll be reading it to my son EVERY DAY FOREVER). What I didn't anticipate is that I NEEDED this book. I needed to hear those words and be reminded that even when the world looks at my son as an oddity, a burden, and someone to be fixed—the Lord created him in His image and loves and accepts him just as he is. I 1000% recommend this book!!!”

5 stars! For me? I read a lot of books, but nothing like this for kids with autism. The author writes a wonderful book for kids with autism and for parents, too. I loved it! It's short, it's a beautiful picture of God's love for all. Do NOT miss this, especially if you've got kids with autism. #autism #autismawareness #parentswithautisticchildren #abilitynotdisability #christianbooksforchildren #booksforautism #readersofinstagram ~ Claire O’Sullivan
