Children's Book Review--Care for Creation

Care for Creation by Christy Baldwin, is my November Book Review.  This children’s book, published by Tribute Books, gives a Christian perspective on our environment.  The illustrations, by Shelly Draven, compliment the author’s message positively. 

Each page gives an environmental message, and then, underneath, it gives a scriptural reference.  For example, accompanying a picture of our planet taken from space is the message:

We are called to care for God’s creation.
He wants us to love the land…
And underneath we are referred to Genesis 1:1
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

I can see this book used for several age groups.  The pre-school groups can look at the beautiful pictures.  The early grades can read the book because the words and font are simple.  Then up to middle school kids, the scripture can be a teaching tool.  I’m also thinking of parents taking the opportunity to teach children how to look up the scripture references.  Look at the book’s web-site to get an idea.

Care for Creation may be purchased on-line here, or purchased at your local book store. 
Santa Claus would be happy to deliver it because of its timely subject.
