The Plans I Have for You by Amy Parker and Illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton
Written by Amy Parker
Illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton
This is a lovely children's book for ages 4-8. It is based on the verse from Jeremiah that says: For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
It is written in rhyme and talks about how God has a plan for your life and He made you just right for the job he has for you. The second to the last page says this:
The whole world will be better,
thanks to little ol' you...
all because you did
what I created YOU to do.
That struck me: if we just do our part, we can make the world a better place even if it is just in our own little corner, in our house just taking care of our six month old baby. If nothing else, we make the world a better place, by contentedly and happily doing what God has called us to instead of whining and fussing.
The illustrations are really good--bright, bright colors and pictures depicting various occupations with a theme that coincides very nicely with the story line.
I love this book and have already read it to Amber twice. She seemed to enjoy the pictures.
