About the Book

This four-color, Gold Medallion Book Award winner is a perfect tool that offers solid, biblical answers to some of the tough questions kids ask about evolution and our world.

“Did Earth begin with a ‘Big Bang’ cosmic explosion?”

“Does science contradict the Bible?”

“What happened to dinosaurs?”

“Is there life on other planets?”

“Did we evolve from apes?”

“What makes my body work on its own?”

Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. It’s not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. It’s up to us as parents and Christian leaders to make sure our children know the truth about the creation of the world. With thousands of evidences to prove He created and sustains the universe, It Couldn’t Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of God’s marvelous works.

Ages 9-12

My Thoughts

First and foremost, I consider that this book should be read by every Christians out there – not only the age group to whom it is intended.   This book is very helpful to understand the difference between creation and evolution and will help you to face others who might have a different view than yours.    I am totally going to let my kids read this specific book but to be honest the terms included in this book might be sometimes a bit heavy for younger kids.   My oldest son would understand most of what it is mentioned in here but there are scientific terminologies that might be more difficult to comprehend.   I would use this book more when he would be 12-14 years old.

Needless to say, this book is very interesting to read and will highlights the differences between to two theories.   I was raised thinking that evolution is what happened but since I became a Christian I am discovering every day that God is behind everything in life.   This book has flipped my thinking processes and will help me to solidified the creation point of view in my kids for the future.   Like it or not they will be faced with evolution teaching eventually.   I want them to be prepared and be able to defend their beliefs on the subject.   This book will help any parent to prepare their children to discover the truth and be able to voice their thoughts intelligently.  

I would highly recommend this book for all homeschoolers who believe in creation and want to prepare their kids for when they will go to college/university!

It Couldn’t Just Happen is available at your favourite bookstore, even amazon.ca.
