God's Amazing World review & GIVEAWAY



My girls and I got a special treat this week!  A new book to review, God's Amazing World, by Eileen Spinelli.  God's Amazing World is a lovely, hardcover book with dust jacket, intended for children ages 4 to 8.  My reviewers are 3 and 6, and they both enjoyed it, especially finding the two kitties that appear on each page.  God's Amazing World is published by Ideals Books.  


Author Bio
Eileen Spinelli is the author of numerous children’s books, including Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch; The Best Story, and Two to Cuddle. Eileen lives in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Illustrator Bio
Mélanie Florian is an illustrator with dual lifelong passions for storytelling and helping children discover the world. Both passions guide her work today creating vibrant, whimsical illustrations. Mélanie enjoys her inspiring surroundings as she works in the French town of Annecy, in the midst of mountains and a beautiful lake.


This is a sweet little book about a girl named Gracie telling her younger cousin, Bo, the events of each of the 7 days of Creation.  When Gracie talks about God creating light and dark in the story, Bo covers his eyes for the dark, and my girls copied him.


You can keep up with Ideals Books on their website or on Facebook.  A quick glance at their current Facebook cover tells me they've got some cute Easter books out now that would be perfect in your little one's basket!  To win a copy of God's Amazing World, which sells for $15.99, enter using the Rafflecopter below.
