This is the Earth that God made. This is the rolling, rocking sea that drinks from the fountains that flow from the mountains that rise from the dirt that covers the Earth that God madeBorrowing the build-on style of This Is the House That Jack Built, Lynn Downey adds rhyme and unfolds a wonderfully visual tapestry of God's marvelous creation. This book begs to be shared aloud by families. Parents will delight in reading the verses again and again; and young listeners will find themselves repeating the lines along with the reader. Beautiful full-color illustrations complement the text and cue the listener to each new verse.Plus, at the end of the story are pages of unique ideas for family explorations of The Earth the God Made activities designed to bring families together and build new understandings of and appreciation for their world and their place in God's world.
