Adam's Animals. Written by Kimberly Payne. Illustrated by Janis Cox
Did you know that an owl has 3 different eyelids for three different purposes?
How about the fact that a worm can have up to 5 hearts or that a spiders legs fill up with blood? These are just some of the insanely interesting things you and your child can learn from this extraordinary work by Kimberly Payne. Here Payne continues her scripturally based writing, which teaches science and animal facts, while also pointing the reader to the scriptural accounts that the particular animal under discussion can be found. Each animal or species group has an activity that goes with it, with the answers to the activity or games found in the back of the book. As much thought as was put into this book, and the research that it must have demanded, surely warrants an investigation by your family. Especially this is the case if you believe we can learn more about the Creator from his creation, which really to me appears to be the main purpose and thrust of this book. As the Bible says, to the "making of many books there is no end" (Ecclesiastes 12:12) but this does not mean that many of these books are not worth the time and effort needed to involve ourselves with them.
