Easter pick – God’s Amazing World by Eileen Spinelli

13 Apr

Here’s a great book for Easter by one of my favorite authors!



God’s Amazing World
by Eileen Spinelli
Illustrated by Mélanie Florian
32 pages – ages 4+
Published by Ideals Children’s Books, an imprint of Ideals Publications on March 1, 2014

Cousins Gracie and Bo are amazed by the world around them. Gracie tells Bo about the 7 Days of Creation. Together the children discover how great and beautiful the world is.

This is an extremely cute book! The illustrations are just beautiful and a perfect fit for the story. I love the two little cats in the background of  pretty much all the pictures. They are funny. Gracie and Bo are great characters. I like the happy feeling the story has. I like how Gracie explains the 7 Days of Creation to her younger cousin by just playing outside. It is very simple and fun but not “preachy”. Mrs. Spinelli has done it yet again! 😀

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms!fivebooks

    Excellent choice my donut eating friend. I agree about those illustrations. That book is just one of the best books out there. 🙂

    Just may need to purchase this book to share with my preschoolers at St. Michael’s School. A beautiful book that shares about our wonderful world that the Lord created. Happy Easter, Erik.

    I was immediately drawn to the cover—beautiful artwork—but most definitely the title. It’s not often you see books about God or creation. It’s refreshing 🙂

    I love the kitties in the background on the cover. How cute, a little comic relief. Ms. Spinelli is a really good writer and ll her stuff is wonderful. I am not surprised this book is the same quality. But I think the illustrator putting those itties in the background was terrific. How many little kids, besides you 🙂 , will notice them. Very nice choice for an Easter book, Erik. You have great taste.
