Today’s read-aloud is a storybook version of the Days of Creation. I love the short, rhyming text in The Beautiful World that God Made. The illustrations are stunningly beautiful. The narrative doesn’t stray from the Bible story.
Little ones will love this version of the Creation story, and they will be drawn in to the book by the bold colored pictures. This is one they will want to read or hear over and over again.
After reading it (and several other versions I’ve shared below), do some hands-on activities. Enjoy a creation-themed snack, and complete the FREE Days of Creation printable I’ve created just for you!
