This book is really too religious for me. While I raise kids with a belief in God, this book is almost like ramming religion down their throats. The book is cute, with nice drawings and the underlying message is a good one - everyone can find a gift to make the world a better place. But mentioning God in every sentence is in my opinion a little bit much for a book that is geared towards very young kids. Religion should be something that kids adopt as part of their life and when growing up, not by being constantly reminded that God is the center of their lives. The target audience, kids aged around 4 years, is too young to fully grasp religion as a concept and outside of church and the nightly prayer, I am not sure that religion should be that central to their lives.
So overall, I am disappointed with this book because the message could be phrased in a much more age appropriate way, which in my opinion would be the more Christian approach.
