God's Great Creation (kids book review)



Book Description: 

"Man and woman had been created in God’s image … that meant people were extra special to God." God spent seven days creating his world. He made the stars and the moon, the plants and the trees, and the birds and the fish. On the last day he made Adam and Eve - people like you! God loved everything that he made. But one day Adam and Eve disobeyed God.
This level 2 I Can Read! book is designed for newly independent readers and is based on the Adventure Bible - the #1 Bible for kids!
My thoughts:
God's Great Creation: An Adventure Bible I can Read book is a wonderful book for kids! God's Great Creation, retells for kids the story of the first 7 days of God creating the world and the eventual fall of Adam and Eve and their exile from the Garden of Eden. I found that the story was very accurate when compared to actual Biblical scripture. Sometimes I find that Bible story books tend to gloss over scripture or don't tell the whole story when they are books that are geared toward children. Not this one.  
The book is illustrated by David Miles and I will have to say that personally I found the illustrations to be well done for children, however I was distracted by the cartoonish way that some of the animals were drawn. I like the way that Mr. Miles depicts Adam and Eve without clothes on but makes it a non-issue that kids won't pick up on. 
The book is geared toward ages 4-8 and so what better judges than my 4 and 7 year olds....Rebecca (age 7) enjoyed reading it to her younger brothers (ages 4 and 2). She is a good reader for her age and said that the book was a little easy for her to read, but she enjoyed the story. Jacob (4 years old) liked looking at the pictures and asking questions about the story. He said he liked that "God made everything." He said that the elephant was scary and that he didn't like the snake. 
Overall, I was very pleased with the content of the book and look forward to re-reading it over and over with my children.
