Only God Can Make A Kitten, written by award-winning author Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrated by bestselling artist Laura J. Bryant, follows a conversation between a mother and child as the child repeatedly asks "Mama, who made . . . ?"

 In the end, children learn that God is responsible for everything in creation—including kittens!
Illustrated children's can you not love them! They are the first books you are introduced to and memory makers with your own little ones. I'm always on the lookout for new ones for my kiddo, because they are cherished.

Only God Can Make a Kitten is such a sweet and affirming story of how God loves us and and provides not only for us, but for everything He created in the world. We see this all through a little boy as he and his mom take their walk outside.

The pictures were bright and eye catching and very sweet. My little's couldn't wait for the kitten to make her appearance. The drawings and the story work so well together and make it very easy for littles to understand all that is going on. This book as already been requested to be added to the nightly rotation of stories.

If you have a little ones asking questions about God's creation, or one who just loves picture books in general, this one is one I would suggest.

Too Read!
