God's Amazing World! by Eileen Spinelli Book Review + Giveaway 4/4 US/CAN #ShareAMoment

About God's Amazing World!
Gracie and her cousin Bo explore the seven days of Creation, all without leaving the backyard! As Gracie tells the story of how God made the world, she and Bo find evidence of each day’s work right there around them. When they get to Day 2, the day God created the
sky, they take a moment to cloud watch. Day 3 leads them to play in the water, and on Day 6, they imitate the cows and pigs and lions God made.

This sweet, clever picture book by Eileen Spinelli overflows with enthusiasm for God’s Creation, and children will catch the excitement and will begin to view their own surroundings as a tour of God’s lovely world. Parents can use this beautiful book to introduce
children to the concept of God’s work in the world and to encourage appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of the world around us.

My thoughts:

When I received the book, God's Amazing World! by Eileen Spinelli, I can't help getting amazed by the wonderful illustrations and colors. The colors were so vibrant and colorful my daughters jumped up and down asking me to read it to them.  So I did. :)

As much as I loved the illustrations, I loved the story just as much. I grew up in a Catholic family and went to a Catholic school from elementary up to high school and graduated from a Catholic University. I am slowly introducing faith and God to my daughters and this book was perfect.

My 5 year old daughter is the one who asks lots of questions and she would often ask me where water came from, where the fishes came from and a lot more! My 3 year old daughter doesn't ask those kinds of questions yet but I can feel she's going to ask me real soon.

When I read God's Amazing World to my daughters, they were very attentive. My 3 year old daughter noticed the 2 kittens on every page. She would ask me what the cats are doing on every page. LOL. Well at least I know she was listening carefully and looking at the pictures on the book.

I love how Eileen Spinelli simplified the story of Creation through the book God's Amazing World!. I also love the illustrations by Melanie Florian. The book taught my daughters the story of Creation in a simple way which they will surely remember.

This book is great for children ages 4 and up but my 3 year old daughter loved it as well. :)
