This book beautifully illustrates the seven days of creation described in the book of Genesis. Kudos to artist Nancy Tillman! Paired with the poetic words of Archbishop Tutu, it is a delight to the senses. Preschoolers will be fascinated by the bright colors and realistic animals. It emphasizes the love is part of everything God creates.
The text is personally expressive, but completely biblical. There is an inscription page which makes it perfect for gifting, which includes this verse:
“Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.”
VERDICT: 5 STARS. Beautiful and biblical.
