Christopher Award winner Spinelli (Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch) retells the biblical creation story. With colorfully engaging illustrations by French artist Florian (My Real Name is Princess), the story follows two children as they talk about creation and play together outside. The two move around their backyard as the older child, Gracie, tell the younger child, Bo, what God did on each of the seven days when the world was created. The children then relate that day's creation to what they do in their own backyard. In talking about day two, when the sky is created, they lie in the grass watching the clouds pass by; for day three, when water is created, they splash in the sprinkler. Each day is pronounced "good." Spinelli takes the complex idea of creation and breaks it into small enough pieces that it becomes understandable for even the youngest members of its intended audience. The illustrations cheerily expand the text. Ages 4-8. Illustrator's agent: Bright Agency. (Apr.)

Cousins Gracie and Bo are amazed by the world around them. Gracie tells Bo about the 7 Days of Creation. Together the children discover how great and beautiful the world is. This is an extremely cute book! The illustrations are just beautiful and a perfect fit for the story. I love the two little cats in the background of pretty much all the pictures. They are funny. Gracie and Bo are great characters. I like the happy feeling the story has. I like how Gracie explains the 7 Days of Creation to her younger cousin by just playing outside. It is very simple and fun but not “preachy”. Mrs. Spinelli has done it yet again! :D *NOTE I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
