Wonderfully Made: God’s Story of Life from Conception to Birth, by Danika Cooley, is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces children the miracle of God’s creation through the story of a baby’s journey in the womb until birth. The story allows children to see the miracle of birth through the beginning stages of conception through the amazing nine months of pregnancy. Children will learn and discover all about the beauty of life. The books shows the importance of every little baby’s life from the moment of conception.

Wonderfully Made is a hardback book. It is geared for children of all ages. The book can easily be read to younger children, while children ages 6-11 could read it themselves. This story would be a great read aloud for families expecting a new baby. The story would clearly explain to children all that is going to happen over the next few months to the baby growing inside mommy’s womb.

Wonderfully Made is done beautifully. The illustrations are very well. The book follows a new baby’s journey week by week. I loved how the books stressed the importance of marriage. The book focuses on how each baby is a gift from God that should be loved, cared for, and longed for. A new baby is a blessing and should be met with lots of excitement. I loved how a Bible verse was included on each page. The pictures, details of the baby’s growth, and the cute little happenings of the baby make the story a charming book to read with children.

I really liked this book. It was extremely well done. Wonderfully Made is an excellent book to help children learn how a baby grows and develops. It would make a great addition to every family’s library.

A Note from TOS’ Publisher:

I just finished reading this wonderfully written book, Wonderfully Made: God's Story of Life from Conception to Birth, by Danika Cooley, to my six year old daughter, Chloe. Very well authored, Wonderfully Made takes what some may consider a difficult and awkward subject and explains it in a straightforward and wholesome way. Specifically, its contents illustrate the subjects of conception and childbirth from a biblical perspective, yet in a simple way even a young child can understand, giving God all the glory and praise He deserves. The best part is that the book concludes with giving the reader the gospel message, and points out the need for each one of us to be "born again." I enjoyed my reading time with Chloe today. The material made it all the more special.
