Author Amy Nichols’ children’s book This is the World That God Built is a beautiful, whimsical, and memorable Creation Story. The story uses rhyme and repetition to describe each of the seven days that God took to create the world.
The cumulative nature of the story is delightful to read, similar to There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly or The House that Jack Built. Illustrator Ekaterina Ilina’s brilliant, full spreads are paired beautifully with the story.
This is the World That God Built would easily become a family favorite and a wonderful conversation-starter about creation for little Christians. It’s available in ebook, softcover, and hardcover formats. A hardcover would make a fabulous gift for a little Christian or be suitable for a home, school, or church library.
Reference material at the end of the book includes ‘creation’ Bible verses that can be used for classroom lessons or one-on-one discussions.
