Sadly, no. This is a very non-scientific book. It looks Gorgeous, but actually reading the content is such a letdown. Some of the information is just wrong--the most famous Creationist example is here: the implication that dinosaurs and man co-existed. But beyond a few things that are just plain incorrect, nothing about this book is very scientific. The "facts" are things like 'Wow, stars exist!" or "Your body is so amazing!" Well, yeah, but that's not really science. It would be generous to even call this book educational. There is no discussion of how or why--just pointing out neat things about the natural world. Even if the all the information in this book was accurate, this is educationally no higher than about kindergarten level in terms of scientific concepts.
I wanted a new devotional that had science facts and a picture on every page - we had used a younger version of this previously and our older kids loved it.
- one verse
- one or two pictures
- a science section called "Be amazed"
- the lesson combining all of the above
- a short prayer.
It's one of those books that never make it on the shelf. As soon as someone puts it down someone else picks it up to read, it is that captivating.
The 3 star reviews criticizing the author's views regarding the Genesis account of creation and dinosaurs helped me decide to buy this book. I believe in a young Earth and agree with Giglio's ideologies.
Attached are several pages that will hopefully be of use to uncertain consumers.
Each entry has scriptures & a learning piece that is tandem with a cool "did you know" fact that my kids love.
This effectively ties together the story of God in a physical way that my kids can immediately look around & experience, rather than just another thought of guys wearing robes in Biblical times.
Huge win with this book. Will be purchasing more for gifts & for teachers at church & the Christian school.

We have a lot of bibles and devotionals, so I was a little concerned this would just be a repeat of previous purchases but it's not. Every thought is written with great heart and sound theology and they are very purposeful, thoughtful and meaningful without being wishy-washy or samey. The style of writing reminds me a lot of the Jesus Story Book Bible.
As evangelical Anglican Christians we are pleased with this book for our children. I will be buying it as a gift for other kids in the aged 7-10 bracket. Highly reccomended.
Encourage discussion and exploration. I can highly recommend this to any child and parent to read together
