Editorial Reviews

The Plans I Have for You is a rhyming picture book by Amy Parker that introduces the Scripture of Jeremiah 29:11. A diverse cast of children learn that God has given everyone unique talents and a purpose for each of them.God Himself is the voice of the story, opening with, "Hey, YOU! I've got big plans for you!" With Amy Parker's lighthearted verse, He motivates children to open their hearts, read the Bible, explore their passions, and discover His path for their lives. "You are my hands and my feet there on Earth," He tells the children, with the comforting message that He has equipped us with all that we need to find our way in the world.Lively illustrations and creative graphics by Vanessa Brantley-Newton show multi-ethnic children engaged in all sorts of professions, suggesting a promise of fulfilling futures that await. The bright scenes are tender and engaging, with a touch of humor (a busy nurse has seven arms) and the constant reminder of a guiding presence.With its sing-song cadence, timeless message, and whimsical artwork, The Plans I Have for You is an entertaining read as well as a teaching tool. Just as the young characters on the cover float contentedly on colorful parachutes, this delightful story will make the heart soar.Nina Ditmar, CLJ
