My Thoughts and Review:
This is a sweet book about babies born in different coutries/cultures from America, Australia, Africa, Egypt, China, India, Russia, the Amazon rain forest, to the Arctic. It's beautifully illustrated (by Lin Wang). All babies are precious gifts from the Lord. Their lives are celebrated by their families and are so loved by God.
"In celebration of the publication of Just Like You, Zonderkids is donating $10,000 to World Vision, an organization dedicated to helping children and communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty."(quoted from the inside of the book's jacket) I think that's wonderful! I used to work for World Vision in Thailand and I have seen many struggling children and their families living in poverty. They need our financial help and prayers. You can sponsor children through World Vision. If you would like to learn more about World Vision and their children sponsor program, please click the link on my sidebar.
