From the bookshelf

For a perfect summer book, try This Is the Earth that God Made. Author Lynn Downey takes youth through the Creation story in a rhyming, rhythmical fashion.

This story has been compared to This Is the House that Jack Built because each page adds to verses that are repeated. Even children who don't read will be able to repeat the lines along with the reader.

With Benrei Huang's warm, colorful illustrations, this book builds appreciation for God's world. It also contains family activities. Some great summer ideas include a fish windsock, clay pot bird-feeder, catching fireflies after dark and visiting a farmers' market.

Order this book from Augsburg Fortress, Publishers, at (800) 328-4648; www.augsburgfortress.org.
