I love Mama, Sing My Song by Amanda Seibert!  Mama, Sing My Song shares a story of not a mother telling her child about the love she has for her child, but also the deep unconditional love that God has for us.  I love the Biblical Truth that is in the book and the message it sends to young children.  It is beautifully written and illustrated.  I highly recommend this book for any type of story time.  Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read this book.  My review is also on Goodreads.

Mama, Sing My Song written by Amanda Seibert with art by Sally Garland is a sweet, lovely, and cheerful children’s picture book. I definitely appreciate its positivity as well as the meaningful messages about both God’s love and motherly love for children. I also love the beautiful art filled with adorable animals!

This book is a sweet celebration of children and love! Each page is filled with heartwarming words and moments that truly bring a smile to my face. This book reminds children of God’s amazing and eternal love for them while also reinforcing the beautiful love and bond between mother and child. The positivity and happiness radiating through this book celebrates the goodness and joy in children while helping to reassure them that they are special and cherished.

The easy-to-follow and loosely rhyming narrative flows well. I do wish the narrative was just a bit more catchy and songlike but each word is really a joy and so comforting to read! This will be a perfect treat for parents to read aloud with their children..

I absolutely adore Garland’s beautiful full-page and full-colour illustrations! The soft but vibrant colours are so pretty and the nature scenes are lovingly rendered. All of the details are just so wonderfully done! I love the super cute depictions of the animal mothers and their children. There are bunnies, giraffes, bears, sloths, foxes, polar bears, and sheep mamas with their babies. I could just stare at these adorably rendered animals with their sweet and loving faces all day!

🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰 out of 5 bunnies!

I was drawn to this book because I love God, music, and a great children's book. I was curious to see how the author would weave the two together and she did it!

The pictures are peaceful yet bright, the words are lyrical, and their placement on the pages in waves instead of straight lines enhanced the flow and rhythm of the book.

Now let's talk about the message.

- You are God's creation
- He loves you with all of His heart
- There's nothing you can't achieve

This book is the antidote to any negativity thrown at your children. In fact, it's a recipe to cover your child in prayer, declare blessings over them, and encourage them to see themselves as beautifully and wonderfully made.

It is also an encouragement for parents to remember that the world was created by the spoken words of God and as His representative in our child's life, we too have the power to shape their world in a positive manner by the words we speak over them. 

Therefore reading books like this to them, pointing out their blessings, and writing a prayer with everything good thing you wish for your child helps create a world in which they may flourish.

I was really pleased with where my curiosity took me in requesting and receiving a copy of this book via JustReads Tours. I have written this review voluntarily.

Mama Sing My Song is the sweetest little picture book with a beautiful message and cute illustrations. What a fun rhyming story showcasing the special love of God and how each of us is special in our own way. The book is fun to read, with lilting rhymes and pictures of adorable mother and child animals. 

What makes this book even more precious is the pages in the front and back of the book with fill-in-the-blank sections for personalized messages for your young one, such as: 
Wonderful qualities I see in you _____ 
My hopes and dreams for your life _____

A Presentation page is also included for gift giving.

As a mama myself, this book hit home for me!  While the illustrations are darling, the sentiment is even more so.  The author shares with the reader (and those being read to) that God has made each of us special, precious to Him and unique!  I like how the book describes how the feeling of love from a parent echos that of God.  Children will recognize how God must truly feel about them when they learn that His love and plans for them are even bigger and better than they could imagine.  The rhyming was perfect and no words were massaged into rhyming with another.  The end of the book contained an area for a parent or guardian to share a message with a child about the special meaning of his or her name, a prayer for the child and a Bible verse.  This can be a treasured book to keep forever!

This is such a sweet book. The illustrations are beautiful. My favorite parts are that God created the child and that God is making them into something new. This reflects the story of sanctification. We tell our children that God loves them more than we do and this book affirms that truth. 

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for this review.

And when you remember God's big love for you, don't forget darling that I love you too! I promise you this, for my whole life long, I'll always be here for you, singing your song.

There is something about remembering with your child all the ways you love them from birth to all that they do and who they are - created in God's image, with God's purpose. This sweet book is for both parent and child to reflect on the truest of love- God. God is love. With affirming words such as treasure, value, and all that is good, your child will be reminded how much you love them and how much God loves both of you!

This is a beautifully illustrated book for children.  Little Rabbit asks her mom to sing her a song.  Mom Bunny sings a song to baby about how how she is loved and one of a kind, perfectly made by God. And then she goes on to sing about the other things that God has done: painted the skies, makes all things new, he is always by our side.  It is a very reassuring book for children about the depth and breadth of God's love for us.

What a sweet book. The illustrations are beautiful, and with the little spaces in the front and back for answering the questions, it would be perfect to gift as baby's first book.

"Mama, Sing My Song" is absolutely beautiful. The art style is gorgeous with the pictures of all the animal mama's with their little babies. My mom passed away a few months ago and I've been having a really hard time with it. This book reminded me that even though she's not here, she still loves me and God loves me even more. This sweet book brought tears to my eyes and a lot of love to my heart. I enjoyed it very much. This book would be perfect as a gift from a mama to a newborn baby or for a first birthday gift. This is the kind of book that you would want to keep forever and maybe pass it down to your grandchildren one day. I highly recommend it. 

Thank you Netgalley, the publisher, and the author Amanda Seibert for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

What a precious book to have for a new child as a keepsake!  I loved this sweet story/song about how a mother’s love will always comfort a child but more so the love of God!   A reminder that a child is precious and special and above all loved by God since the beginning of time. I loved the pages to write in special prayers for your child and wishes as they grow. The illustrations are perfect and would really hold a child’s attention.  This would be a great gift for a new Christian mom!

You got to be soulless if you do not read and love this beautiful book!

Well, for me this book means so much! No matter what moms are awesome. Like human awesome. And this book just presents that in the form of different animals with their young ones. 

The illustrations are outstanding. The writing is lyrical and so, so beautiful.

Thank you, Thomas Nelson: Children's, for the advance review copy.

Thanks to Netgalley and Tommy Nelson for a free digital copy.

What a lovely lovely story for kids to have read over them to remind them of who they are and how they are loved by God! The illustrations are just adorable and sweet, but the message of this book is one that each child of age, no matter what their age, needs to hear.

This is quite possibly the cutest illustrated book I have ever seen. I love Sally Garland's illustrations. 

A cute, rhyming story about how much Mamas love their children. Would be a good one for Christian families to introduce the concept of God's love to young children. 

Will purchase when it releases.

This is a cute story about a Mother’s love for her child. She explains that she loves them forever no matter what and I think it’s a good concept for kids to hear and understand. The beautiful illustrations help to tell the story. The rhyming helped the story flow as well. The story is also about God’s love for children. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Nelson for access to this ARC.
