MY NOVEL THOUGHTS:
Made for a purpose by Kristie Wilde teaches young children the whys of things in life. Or at least it was supposed to. This book mainly just focused the whys of animals in the wild. I mean don't get me wrong this book was cute and all and my kid brother loved it but I thought it was going to be something more.
"God made you for a purpose too-"
I was hoping this book was going to be more about the children who read this book-why God made us a people- our purpose in life. I get why Wilde talked about animals, it was so kids could see that God has a plan for everything including us. I think I would have liked this book more if I hadn't been under the impression it would be solely about people (I mean I guess I should have figured based on the turtle on the cover haha). But I mean this book was cute though.
My kid brother's only complaint was that he wished this book would have been longer, other than that he liked it. My favorite thing about this book is the pictures, they were beautiful. It kinda reminded me of that cartoon, Little bear, a little bit.
MY OVERALL RATING:
Although this book was cute it wasn't my favorite but my brother seemed to really enjoy it, so I would recommend this book.

I have been illustrating animals and landscapes for the U.S. forest service and other organizations to communicate their messages through interpretive signage for 14 years! Shifting to Childrens books has been a real treat for me! I hope you enjoy them too!
