Book Review for Care of Creation by Christy Baldwin

Care of Creation by Christy Baldwin
Tribute Books

Care of Creation is a children’s view of how to respect and take care of the Earth for a healthier future for all.

Care of Creation is a story of Christian influence, which tells of our obligation to take care of the earth and all that is on it. Each page is filled with ways to protect and take care of the environment while incorporating verses from the bible. Topics discussed include pollution, recycling, cleaning up in our communities, transportation, water conservation, using alternate sources of energy, energy conservation, and much more. The author even includes an interactive guide in the back of the book to further discussion.

This story is an easy way to talk with children about their responsibilities in taking care of the environment. Children will find there are many things that can be done in each state or country; but there is also much that can be done right in our own homes, cities or towns, which can ease our impact on the environment. Every effort, no matter how small, can help the environment in some way. The author shares her passion and love of the earth, teaching the reader much about how we can combat serious environmental concerns and problems that will make our world a safer and healthier place to live, if we do it together.

Children between the ages of 4–8 will especially enjoy the colorful illustrations of this informative and educational story. To learn more about the author and her works or about her publisher, check out the following links:
