Readers young and old will revel in the extraordinary, layered and artful images Koffsky has created for this lyrical story. It pairs each day of Creation with a color. On the first day, God separated the crisp, strong blacks from the wintry, pale whites. On day two, God poured bubbling blues across the skies and into the watery oceans and seas…. The story continues until the sixth day, which celebrates the diversity of animals and people, and ends with the seventh day when God rested.
With vivid color, sumptuous textures and joyful imagery, the paper-cut artwork engages children and invites them to appreciate to the world around with fresh eyes and wonder.
