Kids’ Guide to God’s Creation: An illustrated guide to earth, space, the human body – all of God’s creation!

(2010) for ages 8 – 12 (Christian). The strength of this book is its accurate but accessible scientific information about our atmosphere, light, oceans, plants, other galaxies, fish, birds, land animals, and humans. Though the topics are organized within the 6 “days” spoken of in Genesis, the emphasis is the interesting science we’ve learned about various aspects of creation. There is no mention of evolutionary processes, but the authors do include a statement recognizing different views among Christians when it comes to age of the earth: “Even though all Christians agree that God created the earth and everything in and around it, some of them disagree over how long it took God to do it. Some believe the earth is very young- between 6,000 and 10,000 years old-while others believe the earth is very old…maybe billions of years old.”
