God Made Me! He Made You! (with CD)
Bridgeway Books (2007)

Mom’s review / summary:
Wow! Beautiful photographs of animals – close up so kids can really see them well, easy-to-remember rhyming words, and an audio CD with the song that goes with the book. And, of course, it reinforces that God made all of this beauty, including the person reading the book.
I think children respond to simple and bright artwork or photographs, which this book certainly has. Olivia really looked at each picture and asked questions about most of them (or said something silly about the animals).
The chorus part of the song / rhyme is repetitive, which helps with remembering it and saying it along with me when we read. Make this a part of your evening routine with your kids!
