Beginner's Bible: Wild About Creation
What you see here is the cover, but inside is very much like the cover. Very friendly, cheerful, easy-to-do for children on their own. "Stocking stuffer" is so over-used, but it could be that or a party favour or better still? A travelling book. Something to keep a little person occupied and learning at the same time.
No deep or controversial theology is included in the text of the book. It's pretty much about how God made everything, things were happy and great, and in the last two pages? Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit (pictured as a pomegranate!) and were banished. I'd recommend this series as a small gift for children. Woodjie loves his and has yet to do any of the activities. He's still looking at the pictures and admiring the animals.
Incidentally, this has been a hard book to review. Woodjie wants his book back. I always want to weigh what the target audience thinks of the book, so I can't hide it before the review. This one's a mega-hit.
