When God Made Light by Matthew Paul Turner

This is a nice little story that explains simply that God is the creator and one of his creations is light. Some of it reads more like a tongue twister, but children will enjoy the lighthearted story.  I didn’t, however, care for the illustrations.  The pictures are water color style, but the children were just too odd looking. Large heads, and large bellies with an overly thin neck. It wasn’t a cute cartoon image. One picture looks like the child has had her eye ripped out.  It was just an okay book for me.

A copy of this book was provided to me for an honest review.

Lullaby Road by James Anderson

While this book is a bit of a rambler, the interesting characters made this book an interesting read. A bit quirky, but definitely unique characters you would expect to meet in a hideaway rural area. Don’t expect too realistic of a story and just be entertained by where the story goes. The main character of Ben is a warm, generous and caring person, although he would never admit to it. The strong characters are enhanced by the beautifully described locations.

The author has one previous book, The Never-Open Diner, that would best be read first. I received a copy of Lullaby Road from the Blogging For Books program in exchange for an honest review.
