If Animals Could Talk – Creation Speaks for Itself

If Animals Could Talk – Creation Speaks for Itself
Written by Dr. Werner Gitt
Published at Master Books

About the book
“If animals could tell us about themselves, using our scientific knowledge, if they could tell us about the way they live, the special way they are made and many details about their individual design – what they would say would be unique praise to the Creator.”

Did you know that while in flight, the sparrow’s heart can beat up to 760 times per minute?

Or that a baby blue whale grows at a rate of 7.28 pounds an hour while it’s nursing, a grand total of 17 tons by the end of the nursing stage?

How about that glow worms have a light output efficiency of 100% as compared to only 4% for our incandescent bulbs?

Dr. Werner Gitt, one of the foremost creationist speakers in the world, uses his scientific expertise in this book to show the unique design features of some of God’s most captivating creations. All people, young and old, layperson or expert, will be able to understand and enjoy this straightforward book. Told from the perspective of the animals being described, If Animals Could Talk clearly shows the impossibility of life without design. Dr. Gitt uses simple language to provoke a sense of wonder and awe at the marvelous design of the Creator.

My Thoughts
This book is quite interesting as it gives the perspective of specific animals or human organs – LITERALLY! When you read the various chapters it is written in such a way that it is as though the animal is speaking to you. I find that it makes it more interesting to learn about a specific animal when it is written that way.

Throughout the book, you will learn more information about the field sparrow, the whales, the platypus, the swallow, the glowworm, the dragonfly (my second best creature I think after the ladybug *grin*), the human eye, the earthworm, the intestinal bacterium, and the golden plover. Then there is a chapter about the animals that did talk in the Bible. Do you know which ones? If so, please comment at the bottom of this review.

I learned a lot from the chapters I have read and I know I am not done yet with this wonderful little book. While I read one of the chapters once, I was reading to my oldest son about some of the things I was learning. He was very interested in learning more and asked to read the book when I am done. Since homeschool permits us to include new books in our day-to-day life, I don’t see why not. I am certain he will enjoy the information that is included in this book very instructive. This child of mine has an incredible memory and will bring up the information whenever it will be necessary and appropriate. I can’t wait to see when he will pull out some interesting fact from this book and tell us about it. You should see him telling out loud about how wrong the museum is when he sees information about millions of years old. I'm so proud of him to be able to voice this information out loud.

I strongly recommend If Animals Could Talk for anyone who wants to learn interesting facts about certains animals/human organs. Let it WoW you…

If Animals Could Talk is available everywhere even at amazon.ca and indigo.ca.
