Book Review: Mommy, who made Earth?


Book Review: Mommy, who made Earth? by Carroll Harrison Kehne Jr.


This is such an adorable book. This book retells the story of creation in Genesis through pictures. This book kept my 4 year old entertained with the illustrations & colors. It also made this story easy to understand for him. As for me, it gave me a whole new view of the creation. 

About the book…

This picture book retells Genesis from the Old Testament is a children’s picture book stimulating enlightenment and creative responses for children. The written word inspires Carroll Harrison Kehne’s original silkscreen illustrations with expressionistic images that illustrate how the Earth was born in seven days. These expressionistic visuals shall stimulate children’s creative thought, questioning, and imagination. These color pictures retell the the story of creation to help children understand how I visualized the beginning of Earth, Heaven and all of God’s creations. Ages 4-8
