God is full of love for your children, and This Special Blessing for You empowers them to live out who God wants them to be in the world. Encourage the kids in your life to spread love and kindness with this engaging rhyming picture book.
Today is the day the world gets to see,
the beautiful person God made you to be.
Wherever you go, it’s God’s love you’re expressing,
so God sends you out with this special blessing.
This Special Blessing for You uses words and phrases that help children better understand what God wants to communicate to them. Each promise and declaration is based on the Aaronic Blessing found in Numbers 6:23–27: “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
Children ages 4–8 will delight in these spiritual takeaways:
- God loves you so much and delights in your presence
- Every child is God’s beautiful creation.
- God fills you with power and strength to be who God calls you to be.
- You carry God’s name wherever you go.
- You show the world what God is like by how you love and serve one another.
This Special Blessing for You is for:
- Reading first thing in the morning during family breakfast, or at the end of the day during nightly bedtime routines
- Sunday school and Christian school classes, to prepare children for who God is calling them to be and what God is calling them to do each day as they go out into the world.
- Parents and grandparents who want to share God’s blessing with the children in their lives.
- Baptism, Easter, birthday, and any other gift-giving events

What a charming book.
I read it with my grandson who loved every page. It is based on the blessing I speak over him each time he stays overnight with me and so he describes this book as being " about me"!
The illustrations are very sweet and the children depicted are very inclusive and the warmth and love on each page is captured and enhanced by the accompanying text.
Many Christian books suffer from a lack of professionalism in words and illustrations, but this one is very well produced and a joy to share
I am truly indebted to NetGalley and Zonderkidz for this eARC copy to review honestly.
Thank you NetGalley and Zonderkidz for this eCopy to review
What a beautiful picture book the illustrations are gorgeous. I love the book's message that God's love and blessing is there to help each child and person through out their life and that they should spread his love and kindness to others.
This was a truly joyous and uplifting book to read especially if you are having a bad day
Really sweet book! I love reading uplifting books to my kids...and this was just perfect! The words flow easily and it has an upbeat cadence to it! I read it to each of my kids (ages 8 and 10) and they enjoyed it! Beautifully written and illustrated!
This beautiful children’s book is a full adaption of some of the most precious Bible verses - Numbers 6:22-27. It is illustrated with a cast of diverse characters acting out these verses in gorgeous full color drawings. It perfectly aligns with God’s message and is a beautiful addition to any child’s library. I can NOT wait to share this with my grandmuffin!!! This Special Blessing for You was kindly provided in digital copy by Netgalley and Eric & Meredith Schrotenboer in exchange for an honest review.
This Special Blessing for You is a reminder to spread love and kindness everywhere you go. The illustrations in this book are beautiful. I love the diversity shown in all the kids and others that we come across. It is truly a reminder to show love and kindness to everyone! Wonderful message for our kids to hear. This can be used daily as a reminder to kids that they are special and they can do wonderful things!
Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this advanced review copy (ARC) in exchange for my honest review on the book!
This book really touched my heart as my grandson starts kindergarten in a couple of days. I got a little teary eyed. Thank you for such a beautiful book and message. The world can be a scary place for children and adults. Nice to see God's love take center stage.
Such a sweet book! This would be a good gift for a baptism, first Communion, etc. Wonderful illustrations!
Thank you NetGalley and Zonderkidz for this ARC. All opinions are my own.
A beautiful book perfect for every faith classroom and church!
This beautiful picture book makes God's message of love very clear and it helps children understand that God will love them throughout their life.
A great way to build positive affirmations in children.
Very uplifting! A real gift of a book.
