When God Made the World by Matthew Paul Turner; illustrated by Gillian Gamble

When God Made the WorldABOUT THE BOOK

From the author of the bestselling children's book When God Made You comes a rhythmic, whimsical journey through creation--for little readers who love science and wonder and the beginnings of all things.

For spiritual parents who are looking for a different kind of creation book, Matthew Paul Turner's When God Made the World focuses on the complex way that God created our vast and scientifically operating universe, including the biodiversity of life on our planet and the intricacies of a vast solar system. Scottish illustrator Gillian Gamble brings the natural world to vibrant life with rich colors and poignant detail certain to stretch young minds and engage imaginations.


And just like a star might showcase God's light or a waterfall give us a sign of God's might, the same could be said of me and of you---how we live, how we love, tells God's story too.

This is just a sampling of the beautiful words that children's author Matthew Paul Turner shares in his newest book When God Made the World. Once again he is able to captivate children as he teaches them and, this time, it is God's Creation story that he explores in this 48-page book. Turner's rhyming text and the beautiful illustrations by Gillian Gamble make this a book that young people will find irresistable and being able to read it with your children and grandchildren offers a wonderful opportunity to talk about our Heavenly Father and to learn just how our world began.

I believe this would be a wonderful addition to home, church, and school libraries and I highly recommend When God Made the World.

I received a complimentary copy of this book but there was no obligation to write a positive review. These are my honest thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
