Author Biography

God doesn't have a favorite color...
He made fish, bugs, birds, and kids in many different shades. All colors of kids are wonderful, and YOU are one of God's fantastic colorful children! This precious truth was the inspiration for writing, 'When God Made Color'. This dear little picture book was written and gloriously illustrated to remind us all, parent and child alike, that we are uniquely created by GOD and each child is equally precious to Him. God takes enormous joy in each of us and His overflowing, generous love for us is eternal. Through the artists brilliantly colored paintings, 'When God Made Color', immerses you in the wonders of Creation in all their glory...the deep purples and blues of night, the bright yellows of day, and the pinks and oranges of flowers. And of course, the colors of all the creatures...including us! The paintings and text interact visually, creating a heartwarming 'Listen-Look-Locate' experience as you encounter God's joy as He designs this gorgeous world, just for us. We are His most spectacular creation!

When God Made Color by Sheri Carmon is an enchanting book that captures the beauty and allure of colors in a whimsical way. God danced across the waters, carrying all the colors of the rainbow. He stood above the waters and wished there was light and thus day and night came into existence. As the heavens and earth separated at the sound of his voice, color streamed through the entire expanse. Everywhere the colors gave life as they swept down on the earth and the earth burst forth with life. Plants appeared and deep green forests grew and after that God made swimming creatures. Next came the feathered flyers and the animals. Finally, God made his most marvelous creation and blessed them all.

This beautiful book takes readers not only through the world God has created but also introduces them to colors in the most wonderful way. The illustrations are vibrant and vivid and will captivate readers with their radiance. The book is like poetry in motion where every page is awash with bright shades of life. The book highlights God's creations and their beauty and color. The author also celebrates the unity and diversity that exist in the Universe, ranging from humans to animals to plants. It is definitely a good book to make children aware of the beauty, colors, and magnificence of God and his creations in a colorful way. It can be used at home and in schools, teaching about colors and the creations of God in an entertaining way.


I read with great enjoyment the book 'When God Made Color' by Sheri Carmon. What a delightful publication! The Biblical story of Creation is vividly portrayed with superb illustrations and clear textual messages. This is a first-class Children's Picture Book that will both teach and entertain its viewers. Also, the message that all colors of kids are equal in God’s eyes is so true and so important! I think this picture book will stand the test of time. I can see why it was awarded a Literary Medal with Readers' Favorite!

Sheri Carmen leads with her heart in this meaningful and beautiful children's book. I sent the book to all 6 of my great grandchildren ranging in ages between three and eight years old. The older children enjoy reading to the younger siblings. They are captivated by the biblical story and the wonder of all color in God's creation.

Beautifully written and illustrated . It is a great book for our times when we are struggling with accepting all people as being equal not only in the eyes of God, but in the eyes of humanity.
