The Creation is a retelling of earth’s creation from the book of Genesis. It’s a children’s book retold by Janice D. Green made easy for children to understand.
The illustrations are in quilt fashion and are fun, original, and colorful. It was a nice change of pace for a children’s books illustrations.
Janice D. Green does a spectacular job of re-telling Genesis. Not only is it easy for children to understand but each page is followed by a corresponding Bible verse or discussion question.
My oldest son is four years old and in preschool. He not only listened with rapt attention, but enthusiastically answered all the discussion questions as we came to them. I felt this drew him in to understand the creation of things much more clearly. It caused him to think about the questions and come up with his answers, or even other questions if he wanted to delve into the matter more deeply.
It was a really enjoyable read, and I think children ages 4-10 would best enjoy this book. This book would compliment any Christian home either to be used during story time, or in a homeschool setting. It would also make a great addition to a Sunday school class.
Another wonderful aspect about this book is the back of the book holds a letter to parents remind us to hold fast in our teaching our children about God, and to keep them rooted in their faith. In an ever-changing world where answers are demanded for everything we must unite together and hold fast to our faith.
There is a Bible Quilt family activity in the back of the book as well which I can’t wait to try. It explains how to make a Bible quilt with Bible pictures for the blocks. It even explains how the Bible pictures can be traced and how your child can color them with crayons and take a part in the quilt making.
There are much more details in the book, and the author includes a website that has directions for making Bible quilts and a coloring book download @ www.biblequilts.com
