It's fun to learn about animals but while teaching children about animals but how often do we forget to credit the God who made them?God Made Them All by Melody Carlson is a fun book about all the animals God made. Not only to I appreciate the durability of this board book but it rhymes too! This book is great way to start telling your kids about all the animals that GOD made! I love these lines:
I saw the desert, vast and dry.
But what lives in that sand?
Amazing creatures can survive
Just the way God planned.
If I could have it my way I'd put an exclamation mark at the end of that last line (at least that's how I'd read it anyways). Yes, God planned that the animals that live in the desert, are able to live there in the dry heat. Does anybody hear a bit sovereignty in that line like I do? ;) I love it. The last page ends like this with a mouse sitting on an elephant:
By now you've met some animals-
Some big ones and some small.
But each of them is special,
For God has made them all.
God is the sovereign creator of all things. There are value to things in this world because God made them, what a simple book to share hints of those truths!
