I received a free copy of this product as a member of Zondervan's Kidz Review Krew in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

This large and colorful picture book is the perfect example of one that appeals to all ages:

It's full of beautiful illustrations and we really liked how it took the familiar topic of creation and injected all sorts of interesting scientific facts into the mix.

This book should come with a warning, because it's highly likely that the scientific fact boxes will pique your kids' interest and send them scurrying down all sorts of rabbit holes to investigate more about the different topics.

But that just helps make the book more appealing to a wider age range!

The book's final illustration page contains an additional fun feature. The picture depicts the full glory of God's creation along with a list of animals for kids to search for and find.

Additionally, the back of the book has a section where the author/illustrator pulls back the curtain and divulges the reasons behind the illustration choices that go along with each page. This was not only interesting to read, but provided even more discussion points for older readers to engage with.
