Book Review: The Wonder of Creation

 


Hello, My Lovelies!  Are you still looking for a Christmas gift for the little ones in your life?  If so, I'm here to help!  I absolutely adore The Wonder of Creation by Louie Giglio.  


Here's more information about this little devotional that pairs scripture with science:

In this captivating follow-up to the bestselling kids’ devotionals Indescribable and How Great Is Our God, founder of the Passion movement Louie Giglio offers more mind-blowing, faith-building scientific facts and biblical truths about the wonder of God’s creation.

Well-known for his powerful messages about science and the Bible, Louie Giglio has a passion for inspiring kids to notice, enjoy, and be in awe of God’s creation. In The Wonder of Creation, children will find new delight in God’s creativity with 100 devotions that explore:

  • Animals–from honeyguide birds to flying snakes to white rhinos
  • Space–from black holes to volcanic moons to gamma-ray bursts
  • People–from optical illusions to brain freezes to our immune systems
  • Earth–from rainbow rivers to blue lava to flowing glaciers
  • And much, much more!

With engaging illustrations and striking photography, this fun and informative book is ideal for children ages 6–10. Each of the 100 devotions features a scientific fact or an easy activity for exploring faith, a short Bible verse, and a closing prayer. With a brightly embossed cover and a ribbon bookmark, The Wonder of Creation:

  • Is ideal for science-loving kids, Bible-loving kids, and any child ready to go deeper in faith.
  • Continues a well-loved devotional series that has sold more than half a million copies.
  • Makes a great addition to a homeschool STEM curriculum or a bedtime reading routine.

As kids dive into this awe-inspiring devotional, they’ll be amazed at the many wonders God has made!

Check out these other books in the bestselling Indescribable Kids series:
  • Indescribable
  • Indescribable for Little Ones
  • How Great Is Our God

My Review:

I love everything about this adorable book.  There are 100 entries about science, and I think that most children will love each and every single one.  Each entry also includes relevant scripture reminding readers that God intentionally created the universe.  Nicola Anderson's illustrations are whimsical and engaging; children will love them!

From an educational perspective, this book will encourage children to be more curious about STEM.  I learned a lot from the book, and it has encouraged me to check out books from the library, especially about hippos....did you know that they can't swim?  If you already have a child or grandchild who loves STEM, then they will truly appreciate and enjoy this devotional.  I highly recommend it!


This is one of my favorite entries about the weather phenomenon El Niño: 



Did you know that El Niño means the Christ Child because it usually begins around Christmas?

  1. I did not know either of those little factoids you shared! This looks like a great book. Maybe Mimi should get it to get a head start before Baby J can learn from it! ;)

    1. Good question! The publisher says 6-10 years, but I think tweens would also appreciate it, too.
