Strobel, whose apologetics titles The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith have enjoyed strong popularity among evangelicals, approaches creation/evolution issues in the same simple and energetic style. The format will be familiar to readers of previous Case books: Strobel visits with scholars and researchers and works each interview into a topical outline.
Although Strobel does not interview any "hostile" witnesses, he exposes readers to the work of some major origins researchers (including Jonathan Wells, Stephen Meyer and Michael Behe) and theistic philosophers (including William Lane Craig and J. P. Moreland). Strobel claims no expertise in science or metaphysics, but as an interviewer he makes this an asset, prodding his sources to translate jargon and provide illustrations for their arguments.

New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel revisits his arguments for intelligent design in Case for a Creator for Kids, this time using kid-friendly language and illustrations. Working with Rob Suggs and Robert Elmer, Strobel presents the basic reasons to believe in creation, helping kids understand principles such as the Big Bang theory, the complexity of DNA, and the finely-tuned workings of the earth itself, while guiding each child to draw his or her own conclusions from the evidence.
Strobel, best-known for writing Case for Christ, Case for Faith, and Case for a Creator, is well-qualified to write this book. He does an admirable job of explaining difficult scientific concepts in a way that children can understand, and the use of cartoon illustrations engages young readers attention. Kids will also enjoy the four short fiction stories at the end of the book that demonstrate a few of the principles Strobel has earlier explained.
Through this book, Strobel seeks to prove Genesis 1:1that in the beginning God really did create the heavens and the earth. This book will be a valuable tool for parents or teachers seeking to enlighten children who are asking questions about creation or evolution. However, though most concepts are explained well, a few terms may still be difficult for younger kids to grasp. I recommend this book for children in upper elementary or early junior high.
