Blog Tour : Care for Creation

Title: Care for Creation


Author:  Christy Baldwin


Illustrator: Shelly Draven


Published: Tribute Books, 2010


Pages: 32


First Line: "We are called to care for God's creation."


Summary: Children learn to protect the environment and respect nature through recycling, home energy conservation and neighborhood clean-ups. Through accompanying Bible verses, they are encouraged to be responsible stewards of God's creation.


Review:  Care for Creation is a nice little book that uses bible quotes to teach children the ideas about creation.  I think that the illustrations were truly amazing too.  Some of them were so beautiful that I kept going back to look at them.
I really liked Care for Creation as it was nice and simple and a good way of teaching children about recycling and environmental issues.
It's a short read so if you have the time to read it then you should definitely give it a go.  I think children will love the pictures too.
