In her newest children's story, beloved author Allia Zobel Nolan treats her young audience to an unforgettable look at how God created the world. Imagine that day when God smiled and His love and light filled the Earth! Set to rhyme and accompanied by Linda Clearwater's colorful and engaging illustrations, this story inspires 3- to 6-year-olds to imagine how fun it would be to dance through fields of brand new red poppies, spy on freshly created pink flamingos, and climb up just-made mountain peaks.
Best of all, children come to understand that God is the source of all life and that His Son, Jesus, came to live in their hearts and light up their lives.

"Nolan employs a beautiful blend of poetic artistry and Biblical authenticity to simply show how God extends that love in sending another light, His Son Jesus, to save the children of the world. When God Turned On the Light is a book many children's authors may wish they had written, and one which many children will desire to read."
L. Jerome Jones, Fruit Of Righteousness Abounding Grace And Truth Ministry Inc.

none5 Stars Out Of 5When God Turned On the Light by Allia Zobel NolanMarch 26, 2015noneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am honored to have been asked to review a children's book, When God Turned On the Light by Allia Zobel Nolan!! Thought I'd share it with you.
The new children's book about Creation, When God Turned on the Light is a heart-warming and
bright presentation of Creation as well as an exemplary introduction to Jesus -God's Son, the
Light of the World. The author, Allia Zobel, Nolan uses poetry on each page to pique a child's
curiosity, thus begging excitement to see what lies ahead.
Mrs. Nolan enlists Linda Clearwater to blend in the vibrant color-splashes of illustrations. She
personifies, i.e., "mountains tipped their caps to the light" and "the cotton cloud kissed thier peaks,"
both realistic and familiar pictures a child can absorb. Effortlessly, she incorporates alliteration
with words a child, ages three to six years old, can visualize. The author culminates by highlighting
the Light of the World, Jesus, making it clear that God is Creator, in language a child can
understand. When God Turned On the Light! every child's treasure!
