The world suggests that color blindness is required to appreciate those different from us; still, God created the world in full color, and we can't pretend not to see what God has chosen to make so completely obvious. The spirited narrator of He Chose a Coat for Me! uses descriptions of her own colorful coat collection and of the useful coats of her animal friends to help readers appreciate the truth about the purposeful coloring of our outer coverings-skin. Kids will enjoy this rhyming treasure-no color blindness required!
The insightful storyteller points out the onset of color differences in biblical history and describes the role of melanin and its miraculous relationship with the sun. This narrative, beautifully illustrated and told from a child's perspective, makes clear that skin color differences are the workmanship of an intelligent designer with an expressed value for all human life. The message is clear: skin color differences are one more expression of God's amazing love and care for us-another reason to worship Him!
