From the Jacket Flap:
Have you ever wondered?
God is so creative! He made the giraffe's long neck and He hung the moon in the sky. God must be strong! Read along as young Jared ask important questions about how God created him and wonders about each answer. 

The Queen's Take:
There's a lot to this little book. Jared takes the reader through several questions about how God made us. As he looks around his world, at such things as cakes mixes, play dough and robots he realizes God didn't mix us together like a cake, nor molded us like clay. And we aren't made of metal either, like robots. 

However, as it says in Psalm 139, God did create our inner most being while we were still in our mother's womb. 

There is so much that can be done with not only this book, but the other I Wonder books as well. 

I'm not sure if a local bookstore carries these books. They can be found on Amazon, but are ordered directly from Mona Hodgson's author's site.  

Discussion Questions:
While reading this book, take time to discuss your child's thoughts about how we are made. 

What if we were made like robots? What would we be like? Would we be better people? If not, why? 
Each page is an opportunity for discussion on why we are created the way we are and what makes us special and unique. 

Come back Wednesday for some fun activities to do with this book. Friday, we'll meet Mona Hodgson and the Illustrator Chris Sharp.
