This book is an extremely good resource

Australian born Ken Ham is the President of Answers in Genesis and The Creation Museum. He's a well-known apologist in his defense of a young earth. His book series The New Answers takes on tough questions concerning Creation/Evolution and the Bible.
In Book 4 of The New Answers Series, Ken Ham tackles bold subjects, such as the peppered moth debate, dragons as dinosaurs, Charles Darwin's soul, cavemen, abortion, living fossils, the big bang, climate change, Noah's ark, environmentalism, mutations, and more. Each chapter is carefully answered by numerous scientists in a precise and fact-filled manner. Diagrams, scales, and examples help visualize every factor presented by following recognizable data.
Being both a Christian and a believer in a young earth, I found The New Answers Book 4 to be an extremely good resource. The information gathered by Ken Ham strengthened my knowledge and answered a few of my own personal questions. How Noah's Ark was built, the canopy model theory, the dispersion from the tower of Babel, the Dasha Solution, and the ancient depictions of dragons, all of which were mentioned in these chapters: "Dragons... Were They Real?," "Cavemen... Really?," "What Are Some of the Best Evidences in Science of a Young Creation?," "What Is the State of the Canopy Model?," "Could Noah's Ark Have Been Made of Wood?," What about Creation, Flood, and Language Division Legends?," "What about Distant Starlight Models?," and "What about Design Arguments Like 'Irreducible Complexity?'"
Certain facts from the book amazed me with their fascinating points:
-The drawings of dragons by ancient civilizations around the world closely resemble certain dinosaurs.
-The fact that Neanderthals aren't always found in caves.
-Findings through genetics show Neanderthals and Denisovans were completely human.
-There's very little sediment on the seafloor.
-Bent rock layers in the Grand Canyon.
-Soft tissue discovered in fossils.
Ultimately, the book left me in awe of our Creator. God's designs are full of complexity, diversity, and creativity. You can see His handiwork everywhere you explore and in everything you discover.
I highly recommend The New Answers Book 4 to creationists, theistic evolutionists, and to some curious-minded evolutionists. It's an excellent book for teaching science to older homeschoolers.
