This Is The World That God Built

This Is The World That God Built

By Amy Nichols, Illustrated by Ekaterina Ilina

This Is the World that God Built is a retelling of the biblical creation story. A riff on the familiar nursery rhyme “This Is the House that Jack Built,” the story uses the cumulative tale format to build from Day One of creation, when God split light from the darkness, through Day Seven, when God rested from his work. The book follows the biblical account of creation using simple rhyming verses and vivid illustrations sure to become a treasured keepsake for children of all ages.

This book is also an Award-Winning Finalist in the Children’s Religious category of the 2020 Best Books Awards sponsored by American Book Fest.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A beautiful retelling of the 7 days off creation, told in a wonderful rhyming style. The illustrations are bold and absolutely gorgeous! In the back of the book there is a scripture reference for each day of creation.

This book is a great way to share with your children how God created everything so gloriously. Christian faith based books are some of my absolute favorite books to read to a child. It plants the seeds for a belief that they will hold for a lifetime. This book is one that will be read over and over in our household.
