Kids appreciate our full-color world with In the Beginning

God's creation is full of color. To help kids appreciate our world, why not go back to In the Beginning (Augsburg Books, 2002)?

Written by Steve Turner, In the Beginning introduces kids to the creation story. This is a great read-aloud book for kids ages 4 to 8. The rhyming, rolling words are fun to say and hear. And the artwork is beautiful. Colorful and bright, the pictures bring the story to life and do justice to God's creation.

For another look at Old Testament stories, try Noah, Build Your Boat (Augsburg Books, 2002). Learn about Adam, Moses, Noah, David and other Old Testament stories from a kid's perspective. Jeff Kunkel gathered kids, ages 5 to 12, and read them a "juicy" Old Testament story. He then invited them to rewrite the story in their own words and draw or paint it. Both adults and youth will enjoy the final result — a fun and unique look at these stories.

Order both books at www.augsburgfortress.org or (800) 328-4648.

For the chunky book crowd, there's Noah and the Ark and Noah's Ark (Candle Books, 2001). Both have bright, colorful artwork that's sure to entertain toddlers. And the text is easy for little minds to understand. Noah and the Ark even has a cardboard boat that kids can push along as each page is turned. These sturdy books travel well and can keep kids entertained during worship. Order from Kregel Publications at www.kregel.com; (616) 451-4775.
