The text for the book comes directly from the first few chapters of Genesis as it relates the story of the Creation.
What I Like: I like, no I love (!), the illustrations. They are beautiful and captivating and the pages are illustrated in a manner unlike any I’ve seen in any children’s book - truly a feast for the eyes.
What I Dislike: The only thing I don’t like about the illustrations is the artist’s visual rendition of God. It reminds me too much of a wizard, albeit a kind and gentle one.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
Age Appeal: The publisher’s suggested age level for this book is 4-7. I’m sure children in this age group would enjoy this book, as the text is simply written. But even though it is a picture book, I also think its artwork would speak to a much larger audience, one that encompasses children, as well as teens and adults.
