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!).
