Care for Creation: A Children's Book Review

Christy Baldwin, author of Nine Things Nathan Noticed at Night and Remembering Wilma, has a new children’s book out called Care for Creation, published by Tribute Books.

Care for Creation is a sweetly illustrated children’s book that combines common sense lessons about the environment with Bible verses (NIV).

In simple language Baldwin explains that God has called us to care for the rest of creation and that He wants us to love the Earth that He created and enjoy its beauty. From giving general instructions to keep the planet clean to more specific activities like recycling and picking up trash, walking instead of driving and cutting down on water use, Baldwin conveys the message that we are responsible for passing on a clean Earth to our children and gives a number of ideas on just how to do that.

If you’re looking for a book to teach children of any age about responsible stewardship of the Earth this book is a good place to start. It even includes a list of suggested activities in the back to get you involved in keeping the Earth a little greener (My favorite activity was #2: Start a garden!).

  1. Aww, thanks for the review, Cammie. I agree with you - on these cold, bleak November days - you can't wait for spring to roll around again and get back in the garden.

    Thanks for sharing CARE FOR CREATION with the readers of A Woman's Place. We appreciate your support of the book and we're proud to have you as a stop on the blog tour.

    I love your blog's header photo of you and your daughter by the way - very cute!

    Best wishes,

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
