The Miracle of you is a beautiful narrative of the unconditional love a parent has for their precious child. And even more so how much God loves us all.


Cleere Cherry Reeve explains in flowing text, the creativity of God as the readers view creatures that swim in the ocean and the spender of the sky. God created this wonderful and majestic world for us to enjoy yet nothing is as wonderful and awesome as the gift of the child God gives to you… a true miracle.

Alejandra Barajas, illustrator, has captured beauty and innocence in the scenes and faces of the children.

This book can install in your little ones that Jesus is the giver of miracles and build a self esteem in children as they learn how loved and special they are.

Beautiful and vivid illustrations describe all of creation. The text in rhyme gave me a chance to really sit and examine the illustrations in detail. I think this would be a lovely book to read to a child.

I’d like to give a big thank you to the author Cleere Cherry Reaves and NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read this book. My children and I absolutely adored this book and its message. It was a rather simple read to allow my daughter to gain her confidence as a reader and we read this a few times over. I high recommend to any parent.

This colourful christian picture book shows children where they fit in the world around them and reminds them that god loves them and all creatures. While it may not fit in my public school classroom, it is a nice story and one that families would probably enjoy sharing together.

Such a sweet book! I loved how it reiterated how special a child is to their parents and highlighted their worth. Giving more weight to what God says about them would be nice, but overall I loved this book. The illustrations are beautiful!

I absolutely always love reading about God and His creations.

However, this talks about the miracle of CHILDREN!
All I could think about when reading it to my daughter, was... well, her!
How beautiful and wonderful she is, all thanks to God.

His creation from the sky to the coral reef in the ocean is absolutely breathtaking.

We must seek beyond what our natural eyes see & see things for how God does.

Can’t wait to read more by this author.

I love the rhyming cadence of this book and the overall message. The pictures are very well done as well. I read this to my 3 year old and she enjoyed it! It is one I will probably purchase for our home library.

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC of this book!

The Miracle of You by Cleere Cherry Reaves is absolutely beautiful! My daughter (5) and son (2) asked me to reread this book several times at bedtime. The illustrations and story line are stunning. My two babies were NICU miracle babies so this book really hit home and brought me to tears. "No other treasure could compare to the miracle of you." We will be keeping this book on our bookshelf and reading it every night!

This is a very sweet little book that I believe every parent will enjoy reading with their young child. It is a perfect gift for a child because it celebrates the never-ending love that a parent has for their child. This book could also be a great gift for a child on the occasion of their adoption.

The book has adorable pictures, which will be very appealing to the age of the intended audience and were delightful to me as an adult. Additionally, it is beautiful that the pictures include children with a wide variety of skin colors and pigments.

The words themselves are creative and include a very pleasing rhyme scheme. This is a book that I would be able to read aloud many times with ease due to it lyrical form.

Well done!

The Miracle of You emphasizes through rhymes and vivid images just how amazing and special you are. Such a sweet book to read to a child.

Thank you, Netgalley and Thomas Nelson: CHILDREN'S, for the ARC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A beautiful children's book emphasizing that children are the greatest of all God's creations, even greater than airplanes, stars, oceans, and animals.

The illustrations are beautiful and I liked how the story rhymed on each page. I loved the message but it got a little boring in the middle with repetitive statements. I loved the ending where the parent is telling the child how much they love them. My son beamed at me when I read that part and told him that's how I feel about him. We also chatted about the creation of the world with him asking lots of questions.

I received a free copy from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.

This is a picture book in the words of a child who's admiring God's creation at every point in life. Be it Oceans, sky, friends and family, animals, stars, ships and their voyages.
Illustrations were so good and in relevance to poem.

One must be thankful for what they already have rather than what they could have.

The depth and breadth of maternal love comes through loud and clear in Cleere Cherry Reaves’ warm and wonderful, The Miracle of You.

This delightful picture book opens with an interrogatory: “Can anything that God has made compare to precious you?” Young readers join the author on a expedition through nature, creation, and the universe searching for answers. This includes a look at the vast oceans and sea creatures, airplanes and sailing ships, the animal kingdom, and the moon and other galaxies.

But none of these – not even “the sparkles of the universe” or all its stars can outshine the Miracle of You. In fact, the lyrical prose and vivid illustrations gently point out that nothing in all creation and beyond outshines a mother’s love for her little miracle.

Marinated in maternal love and brimming with joy and wonder, this heartfelt book is uplifting and inspiring. Indeed, The Miracle of You is the kind of story you’ll want to read to your little’uns over and over. It's wonder-full!

A warm book about miracles from god that are scattered throughout the universe, invites us to reflect on the miracles we receive every day. The illustrations for this book are very colorful with different background illustrations for each page.

Thank you NetGalley and Publisher for accepting me to read and review this book.

This colorful and beautifully illustrated book is a perfect set up in showing kids just how special they are. It shows fun illustrations about some of the things kids love best and reminding them that they are even more special than those things.
It's the perfect book to help instill confidence and self respect for kids in a faith based home.

I could easily see this book being added to a family night time routine.

The Miracle of You is a children’s book written by Cleere Cherry Reaves and illustrated by Alejandra Barajas.

The words in this little book serve as a gentle and beautiful reminder to kids of all ages that God made you and loves you.

There are rich and vivid illustrations as well, that will readily capture any reader’s imagination.

This book would make a great gift for a small child, and I can see it being a great bedtime read, as well as a wonderful discussion starter between caregiver and child.

I would like to thank Thomas Nelson Children’s for providing me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!
