    My Thoughts

    Tonight I sat down with three of my kids (the fourth one was on a one-on-one special time with daddy time) and we read through this marvellous book that goes through the story of creation (Genesis 1-2) AND Psalm 139.16707

    The colorful pages were an absolute hit for my kids especially those showing a the plants, fishes, birds and animals.   They each took their time to show me their favourite fish, bird and animal.   I even discovered that my four year old loves bald eagles a fact that was unknown until now.    This fact is written on my heart and I will not forget about it.    The second time we saw the bald  eagle further in the book he joyfully exclaimed “They even put my favourite one there!” *grin*  Gotta love that child of mine.    As much as I love ladybugs I think he loves bald eagles.     I think that a bald eagle from Schleich will find its way in his stocking at Chrismas time… *double grin*

    Needless to say we spent a lovely time reading through the story of creation and also through the facts in Psalm 139.   The kids participated when I asked specific questions regarding creation and enjoyed the beautiful images as much as I did.

    The good news is that this book can also be used in conjunction with either God Made the WORLD & ME or Creation which are two curriculum books that will bring your preschoolers or your grades 1-4 kids to a better understand of creation through science, art, math and more.   

    This book can also be a wonderful gift for new parents as well as for a dedication or baptism.    It is indeed a book that I would recommend any family, church or school to have one their shelves.

    This review was possible because I received a copy of The Creation Story for Children from MasterBooks.
