The Things God Made by Andy McGuire — Book Review

This book artfully combines realistic illustrations and interesting scientific facts with the creation account from the book of Genesis. Best A for older elementary school readers, some of the topics covered are:

What is light?

How were islands created?

Why do plants look green?

How do birds use plants?

At the end there is a list of animals readers are encouraged to find in the book. There is also an author’s note referencing the Genesis verses that apply to each page. Andy McGuire, both illustrator and author has done an excellent job of teaching Biblical truths alongside tidbits of information from a variety of scientific disciplines.

VERDICT: 4 STARS. Homeschoolers will love it!
