This updated and revised edition of the 2003 children’s picture book, You Are So Wonderful, begins with the words of Psalm 139:13-14a: “You are the one who put me together inside my mother’s body, and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me.”
With a focus on God’s creativity and boundless love for his creation, author Jacqueline Lewis’s exuberant, rhyming text and illustrator Jeremy Tugeau’s joyful, vivacious artwork celebrate the diversity evident amongst God’s people as they enjoy life in a verdant city park. Children of all ages from varying ethnic groups and with different abilities run, swing, laugh, play, eat, smile, enjoy ice cream, and more as loving parents and caregivers keep watch over each of them, each a gift from God: “You are so wonderful. This is true. / God made no one else like you…. / Precious child, there’s just one you. / To learn, to love, and have fun too!”
