Name of ProductAmazing Animals by Design

Price:   paperback $8.99; PDF (e-book):$5.99

Age Range: pre-K to 3rd grade

I’ve had the pleasure of reading Debra Haagen’s debut children’s book called Amazing Animals by Design – and as a neat little side note, Debra is also a fellow Crewbie on her first year cruise!  If you’re looking for a book about design from a Creationist point of view then this is a great one to have and the PDF loads great on the Kindle Fire and is very easy to read.  Here is what the book is about from the site:

“Why is a giraffe’s neck so tall? Why do zebras have stripes? Did all of these things happen by accident? When John and Sarah visit the zoo, they ask these questions and many more. Their parents and the zookeepers keep using the word design, but what does that mean? With its relevant message and exciting presentation, this is the perfect book to help introduce children to intelligent design. Come find out in Amazing Animals by Design by Debra Haagen!”

While the age or grade level says pre-K to 3rd my Kindergarten age child didn’t sit still long enough for me to read it all in one sitting, although he did enjoy the beautiful illustrations.  My older two did enjoy it even though my oldest is going into 5th grade.  I enjoyed the way it’s all tied together at the end with mom and dad both discussing how God made us to serve a purpose with the abilities He gave us.

The full page illustrations are so colorful and really make the book come alive with the life-like animals.  It’s enjoyable to have a book that doesn’t think that every child needs a cartoon to enjoy a book and that they can actually comprehend a more life like picture.  Whether you buy a copy for your E-reader, to read on your computer or to have a hard copy in your hand this book is one that will give every child a good basic understanding of intelligent design from the Creator of all!
