God’s Beloved Community: A Picture Book by Michelle T. Sanchez and Illustrated by Camila Carrossine from a Waterbook Hardcover / Penguin Random House Publishing. This children's book from the author of Color-Courageous Discipleship makes the God-inspired dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., accessible to all, helping kids and parents answer God's call to move from being color-blind to color-brave.
God created a world filled with vibrant variety and called it good! From flamingos and crows to shooting stars and rainbows to all our different shades of hair, eyes, and skin God declared it all very good. Now God calls us to resist racism and proclaim with him how precious all people really are. With lively rhyming text, this book takes young readers on a biblical and historical journey to discover more about their beloved community.
Drawing on the biblical vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it explores how we can create communities filled with God’s love as we delight in our differences, stand up to bullying and unfair rules, and declare with our lives and our love that everyone matters to God.
My Opinion: I love how this book reminds you of the beauty around you as you rarely look at it and notice how the clouds look, the sunrise, the colors in the sky, the sunset, and more. It also lets you fight for what is right and stand up and let others know everyone matters to God.
