God's Amazing World! Book Review & Giveaway

I want to tell you about a sweet children's book, God's Amazing World by Eileen Spinelli and illustrated by Melanie Florian.  It tells the story of God creating the world in seven days through the eyes of Gracie and her cousin Bo.  I love the way they explore everything right in front of their eyes and share in the joy of God's creation.  They watch clouds, play in the water and mud, pick and eat peaches, pretend to be birds and so much more.  Children can appreciate the story along with the children's fun actions.  And if your children are like mine, they will probably be asking to play in the mud, go look at the clouds, pretend to be animals and so much more.  I love that this story encourages play and exploration while also teaching about the process of God creating the world.  The illustrations are fun, whimsical and will keep the attention of little ones!

When we went to the Thinkery last week (Children's Museum in Austin) there was so much to discover and explore.  They had an amazing water exhibit and it was fun to remind E of when God made the seas.  Above you can see her enjoying the ducks!  So if you are looking for an explorative and fun way to share about God's creation with your children I highly recommend this book.  What are you waiting for?  Go #ShareAMoment with your little ones now!

About God's Amazing World!
Gracie and her cousin Bo explore the seven days of Creation, all without leaving the backyard!  As Gracie tells the story of how God made the world, she and Bo find evidence of each day's work right there around them.  When they get to Day 2, the day God created the sky, they take a moment to cloud watch.  Day 3 leads them to play in the water, and on Day 6, they imitate the cows and pigs and lions God made.

This sweet, clever picture book by Eileen Spinelli overflows with enthusiasm for God's Creation, and children will catch the excitement and will begin to view their own surroundings as a tour of God's lovely world.  Parents can use this beautiful book to introduce children to the concept of God's work in the world and to encourage appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of the world around us.
