The story of creation and Adam and Eve’s fall from grace is shared with young readers in this beautifully illustrated picture book by Janice D. Green. Inspired by Scripture, the author includes questions after each day of creation, making this an interactive reading experience. This opens up the door for parents to further discuss God’s world and to show how an event that took place thousands of years ago still impacts us today.

Roslyn’s take: My granddaughter loved The Creation. She was really charged that almost every page asked her a question, especially the page where she could name fish and birds. I was surprised how many she could name. We took turns sharing names of uncommon birds, fish, and some of the places we encountered them.

What a great interactive book and what better topic is there for an interactive book? This is just what our Creator had in mind when He created the world with men and women to share all of life.

Cheryl’s take:Janice D. Green retells the story of Creation for readers in a new way. Making this an interactive reading experience, adds so much depth to the story that kids and parents will enjoy reading this book together. I especially like the the Bible quilt craft idea found at the end of the book. Providing a fun activity that ties into Bible learning is something we do all the time at Sunday school. Though the kids see this as a fun time, parents and teachers realize this is another opportunity for young people to learn.

Each illustration is created so it appears the reader is seeing the picture through a honeycomb. This is a unique design, and also allows for a multitude of colors to be used. It also means the author’s work will be easily recognizable if she continues this design in future books.

Christian families will be thrilled to have The Creation as part of their library.

Roslyn and I received free electronic copies of this book in exchange for our honest opinions. Neither of us received monetary compensation to provide our reviews.
