Book Review: Care for Creation

Care for Creation

by Christy Baldwin
Illustrated by Shelly Draven
Tribute Books, 2010

"Care for Creation" by Christy Baldwin is a short book for children designed to foster environmental responsibility. Combining instructional text, quotes from the Bible with charming illustrations of a boy and girl both appreciating and caring for the earth, "Care for Creation" will help foster conversation about what it means to be responsible stewards of God's creation. Ideas promoted include conserving electricity and water, using alternative energy, recycling, walking or biking instead of using a car, keeping our water clean, caring for animals, and planting trees. A brief interactive guide is included at the end of the book. It offers suggested activities and discussion questions.
