Kate and I spent last night flipping through her new book.
The Astronomy Book
It is part of the Wonders of Creation line by Master Books and I LOVE it.
It is refreshing to read educational material geared for kids from a creationist perspective. You gotta love an opening like this:
“Who has not looked into the heavens on a starry night with a sense of wonder? We see in the night sky the vastness of the universe. We have the feeling that some awesome power is responsible for it. Did you know that God designed us to respond this way?
The Bible in Psalm 19:1 tells us that “the heavens declare the glory of God.” God made us in His image so we are able to sense His handiwork in the heavens. This makes astronomy one of the most fascinating sciences.”
I absolutely love Kaitlyn’s inquisitive mind. Her gift wish list has included a globe, a telescope, then a bigger telescope [grin], books on astronomy, and maps of all kinds. We read and discuss various opinions on creation, the earth’s age, and what happened to the dinosaurs. She is delightfully curious (yes, I’m bias!) and I am thrilled to have found material that supports our creationism beliefs.
