ColorFULL by Dorena Williamson | Book Review

“Celebrating Colors God Gave Us.”

One thing I hear often is “I’m colorblind, I don’t see color.” While I understand the intent and desire, it shouldn’t be our response. Why do I say this? Because God made color and He made people look different. And He did because He is creative and loves diversity. I’m so thankful to follow a God who creates that way. If everyone were the same, the world would be so boring.

I love finding books for children that show them this beautiful truth. The truth that, though they may look different from each other, they are all God’s children. This book is fun, the illustrations adorable and I love that it celebrates this.

Finally, not only is this a cute and important story, there’s also “Parent Connection” in the back, which comes with a verse, short discussion and questions that will help parents talk more with their kids. I love that idea and that it’s rooted in Scripture!

I highly recommend reading this to the littles in your life! Any recent children’s books you’re loving?

Why be colorblind when we can be colorFULL instead?

Imani and Kayla are the best of friends who are learning to celebrate their different skin colors. As they look around them at the amazing colors in nature, they can see that their skin is another example of God’s creativity! This joyful story takes a new approach to discussing race: instead of being colorblind, we can choose to celebrate each color God gave us and be colorFULL instead.
