Always a lover of children's books, I was happy to receive The Creation for review.
This book shares the story of creation.
Are pictures a quilt that someone (I'm assuming the author) made, at first I didn't like them, but they kind of grew on me. They are colorful and simple.
How strong is the book?
This is a hardcover book, and appears to be quite sturdy.
Who the book is for:
This is hard for me to figure out, as it isn't overly simplified, and there are a lot of words on each page, yet it's a children's book... I would say that this book would be appropriate for kindergartners.
What I liked:
This book stays very true to what the Bible actually says.
Includes a note to parents about teaching children about creation.
Has pictures to keep kids interested.
What I didn't like:
Each page has questions on it, and some of them are kind of weird, unrelated.
This is actually a pretty cool Bible book.
I give The Creation 4 out of 5 stars.
I received this book free to review from Bookcrash.com. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
In The Creation, a retelling of the account given in Genesis, Janice D. Green puts it in terms designed for a child to understand. Each phase of creation is given it's own page in the book and explained in a few short easy to understand sentences followed by it's corresponding Bible verse. My 3 kids ages four, two and two, all listened intently through the entire story. I found the follow up questions at the end of each page a very nice way to engage my preschooler. She was more than willing to ponder these questions and come up with answers. She really enjoyed that aspect of the book. Even though my boys are not yet old enough to participate that thoroughly, I found this book to be a great starting point on sharing the story of creation with them. Each page is accompanied with colorful hand appliqued quilt illustrations to help further tell the story.. Green does a great job translating the story of creation into terms a young child, even a preschooler, can understand. This is a great book for any Christian home with younger children. It would also make a teriffic addition to the library of a Sunday School classroom or a Church or Biblically based preschool.
I received this book from the publisher through the bookcrash.com review program in exchange for my honest review.

Janice Green is a quilter. The illustrations she uses are actually quilt blocks she did in colorful fabrics related to the story.Read more
