CARE FOR CREATION
By Christy Baldwin
Illustrator Shelly Draven
Genisis 1:1 (NIV) says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” God created a beautiful world for us to live in. With our world comes the responsibility to care for God’s creation. Follow along as author Christy Baldwin takes us on a journey through scripture showing how each of us can fulfill God’s plan in her picture book Care for Creation.
After God formed the heavens and the earth, He made man to rule over the earth and all the creatures. The author interprets each Bible verse she quotes in simple terms for young readers to see how it relates to them. Shelby Draven’s illustrations show a boy and girl swimming in clean water, recycling items, and performing other activities as the author gives examples of how to avoid polluting the air, how to conserve fossil fuels, and other ways to keep our planet clean.
When I was teaching fifth-grade science, we studied conservation using information provided by our Soil and Water Conservation District. The students learned that caring for our world is not just for adults, but they can be a part of it too. In Care for Creation the author and illustrator have presented a unique look at ways children can become involved in saving our world for future generations. An interactive guide at the end of the book would be useful for classroom teachers, for families, and for everyone interested in caring for the land God gave us. After all, it’s the only one we have.
