Gifts from God by Cynthia Reeg
Guardian Angel Publishing, 2007
GIFTS FROM GOD celebrates God’s loving gifts to each child. Glorious color photographs highlighting children and nature accompany each gift.

“Beautiful and spiritually inspiring, Gifts from God is a tribute to God and all the things that are pure in our lives–the innocence and laughter of our children, the tenderness of a newborn, the magnificence of a sunset, the ‘laughter’ of a waterfall. With a few simple lines, some taken from the Bible, some from her imagination, author Cynthia Reeg has created a lovely book for the entire family, one to be read not only at bedtime, but at any hour of the day. The photographs and imagery are, in one word, captivating. This is a must children’s book for your Christian fiction bookshelf.”
Author and Book Reviewer
I think Gifts from God was a very pretty book. The photography was good and the single line insets were thought provoking. I think it could be used as a book for the little one on your lap or for a class discussion.

The book is excellent. It is a wonderful simple story that will appeal to PreK–3rd… It can be a teaching tool for the middle grades in getting them to talk about other examples and life related actions and thoughts…It is a wonderful example for use with the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in getting them to … write their own story.
