Sarah Jean Collins' God Made the World (A Tyndale Kids Title) is a wonderful board book depicting the first seven days of the world through clean, simple, and bright illustrations and a rhyming narrative. Young children are introduced to the history of creation as narrated in the the first book of the Bible - Genesis.

I think my favorite part of the book is the easy nature of the text which lends itself to reading aloud. From the very first time my children and I sat down to read God Made the World, I had no trouble reading it aloud. No stumbling over words or sentences which is a blessing for read-aloud books.

The illustrations also provide parents and Sunday School teachers with many opportunities to create crafts to go along with a reading of the book. Children could very easily create their own book to go along with Collins' God Made the World to help reinforce the story.

When I asked my children about their favorite part of the book, they each had different responses. My two-year-old daughter likes the pages with the animals the best - especially the snake. My four-year-old son likes "the part where God made the trees" the best. And this mom likes the whole book!

I recommend God Made the World by Sarah Jean Collins from Tyndale House Publishers to Christian families and Christian organizations with Sunday Schools or nurseries like schools, churches, or outreaches. I am very happy that we are able to have it on our own shelves.


  1. looks like a cute book for the littles.

  2. what a charming book! One I might get for my granddaughter!

  3. Picture books are so fun! Given that my kids are all young adults, I am missing the opportunity to read them regularly but I still have an extensive collection. This one looks so bright and beautiful.
