As a former Parochial elementary school teacher and a current stay-at-home mom, I feel that this book could be an excellent supporting text when discussing the creation story with young children as well as when discussing several science topics such as plants, animals, and the senses. A few verses of The Creation Story are on each page along with a simple illustration followed by discussion questions. I really enjoy the discussion questions because they truly bring to life what the Bible verses are saying in a simple, easy to understand way. I give this text a 4 out of 5, only because the Bible verses are in New King James translation. For this being a children's book, I feel that an easier translation would have been more appropriate. - Katie Courtney
The Creation Story for Children by Helen and David Haidle is a book we'll turn to again and again. I'll use it during devotions, for science education during our preschool homeschool times, and as a welcome addition to our library. The first 25 pages each, in two page spreads, include a couple verses from Genesis 1 or 2, a simple yet attractive illustration, and a paragraph with discussion questions ("Can you find the different fins and tails that help fish [in the picture] swim?") and/or scientific facts ("Clouds are formed when billions of water droplets come together.") The next six pages each include pictures of and paragraphs about specific animals and creatures in God's creation. Finally, the last eight pages focus on God's personal creation of each of us, drawing from Psalm 139 to teach children about God's creation in you. Good stuff, y'all. Good stuff. (I must disclose that I received this from New Leaf Publishers for my review. They only asked for an honest review, though, not a positive one.)
