DEBBY ANDERSON is the author and illustrator of over twenty-five books, including the ECPA Gold Medallion nominee God Knows My Name. Debby is a kindergarten teacher, and she and her husband, Gordon, are the proud parents of four children and grandparents of three. They are also active with American Missionary Fellowship, sharing the love of Christ with people from all walks of life.
Each passage in the book that explains the tasty vegetables of a personal garden or the amazing variety of colors amidst butterflies is given a set of biblical references. Thus, the book can be read as a story, or each set of pages can be used as an individual Bible study for youngsters. Additionally, the author has inserted little "teaching balloons" to encourage children to show appreciation for God's planet, including lessons on the importance of recycling, the necessity of planting new plants once current ones are harvested, and the need to treat animals kindly.
This is a wonderful book that features theology, ecology, geography, and sociology, and all on a level that 3- to 6-year-olds can enjoy. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
