    Wonderful book on caring for our world!

    Do you teach your children to care for our land? Do you teach them to recycle, to help keep their community clean and to use chemical free cleaning products? This is what Care for Creation is about, teaching young readers the responsibility in keeping our world an environmentally safe place to live. This book is full of ideas and tips to help us do a better job of taking care of our earth. At the end of the book, there are discussion questions to understand better how to do this as well as suggested activities readers can do together to make keeping this earth clean.
    I love this book from cover to cover! The pages with text are a cream color with the font brown making it easy on the eyes to read. And there are so many beautiful pictures to capture the interest of the young reader and also help to better understand the story. And the scripture verse on each page to go along with what the author is teaching is a special bonus to assure young readers the Bible teaches us to keep our earth clean. This cute little book is a must for your child's library, and I recommend it for school, church public and Libraries as well.
    This book was provided by Tribute Books. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The review is my opinion only.

    Great kids' introduction to Christian environmentalism

    This children's book of friendly illustrations in dreamy pastels contains an important message about stewardship. It says that while God gave people the planet Earth, but He also gave them the responsiblity to care for it and keep it clean. To show the connection between Christianity and eco-friendliness, "Care for Creation" includes appropriate Bible verses from the NIV and The Message translations of the Bible on every page. It mentions environmental problems in terms that children can understand, like saying that we can't eat food that has been polluted, or enjoy swimming in polluted water.


    "Care for Creation" covers all the important basics of environmentalism: it mentions recycling, caring for animals and preserving animal habitats, conserving water, conserving electricity, and decreasing our use of fossil fuels, and explains the concepts in such a way that a child of six could understand them.


    The book draws comparisons between keeping our communities clean and living the life of service Jesus calls us to, and also notes that the Earth reflects the Lord's glory, and we should naturally want to protect anything that reveals his goodness. Each page is very aesthetically pleasing, but while the illustrations are pleasantly light-filled and upbeat, the message of the story is serious. It's a good children's introduction to stewardship of the planet, and it ends with some Suggested Activities for caring for creation and some Discussion Questions for parents to continue this important dialgoue with their children.

    Teaching responsibility

    As a Christian, I've always been aware that it's our duty to protect the beautiful gifts that we have been given in nature, and this was brought home to me very poignantly when seeing firsthand the damage done by the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. That incident made me more firmly resolve to do whatever I could to take a more active part in being a wise steward of the earth's resources. In the Christian community in particular, I believe that there is not much encouragement for individuals to act responsibly in this way. That's why I was so excited to review this children's book that has such an important message in such a simple format.

    With beautiful illustrations focusing on a brother and sister and their day-to-day experiences, Care For Creation pinpoints the many things that we can do to take care of the earth and also gives Bible verses to back up each concept/action. Seeing these paired together was a powerful mixture. The factual nature of the text is something that would interesting for young readers, and the illustrations alone are enough to keep a younger child's attention, while being read to by a parent. The book can encourage interesting discussions that will help both parent and child to learn more about the small steps that can be taken. This could even be a good resource for an upper elementary Sunday school class discussing creation.

    How to Take Care of Our Earth

    Genisis 1:1 (NIV) says: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." God created a beautiful world for us to live in. With our world comes the responsibility to care for God's creations. Follow along as author Christy Baldwin takes us on a journey through scripture showing how each of us can fulfill God's plan. After God formed the heavens and the earth, He made man to rule over the earth and all the creatures. The author interprets each Bible verse she quotes in simple terms for young readers to see how it relates to them. Shelby Draven's illustrations show a boy and girl swimming in clean water, recycling items, and performing other activities as the author gives examples of how to avoid polluting the air, to conserve fossil fuels, and other ways to keep our planet clean. When I was teaching fifth-grade science, we studied conservation with information provided by our Soil and Water Conservation District. The students learned that caring for our world is not just for adults, but they can be a part of it too. The author and illustrator have presented a unique look at ways children can become involved in saving our world for future generations. An interactive guide at the end of the book would be useful for classroom teachers, for famiies, and for everyone interested in taking care of the land God gave us. After all, it's the only one we have. Beverly Stowe McClure, author of Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines

    Wonderful Little Book

    I thought this was a sweet book with a really important message that our children need to hear, learn from and follow. Each page explains a reason why the environment is important and how we can do out part to keep it clean and unpolluted. Along with that is an accompanying verse from the Bible. That verse shows children what God said about our environment, animals, living cleanly, etc. It is not preachy in any way but very thoughtful and sweet.


    I especially liked the pictures. I can't give a reason why they struck me as they did but they did. It was like looking at a photograph instead of an illustration. They were very real and lifelike to me.


    I recommended Care for Creation to everyone, child and adult alike especially if you are teaching your children about God and how He wants us to take care of our planet.
