Explore the Bible and learn from God’s creation. This entertaining and educational book offers children loads of fun. At the same time they’ll be learning about the Bible.
Inside its pages you’ll find:
 ·         Bible stories told from the viewpoint of the tree
·         Fast facts to help identify the specific tree
·         An activity to help reinforce the truth in the lesson
·         Challenging questions to support each story
·         Glossary and “People of the Bible” sections at the back of the book define words which are highlighted in bold
·         Project suggestions to enhance your learning
This engaging and instructive book is a colourful introduction to trees, leaves and their corresponding Bible stories. It’s ideal for 7 to 9 year olds, for home or school use and classroom sharing in grades 2/3 to supplement the Life Sciences Curriculum on Plant Life.

What you love about your new book – I love the colours and entertaining nature of the book. Who knew that learning could be so much fun!

A new lesson you learned during the publication of this book – Edit, edit, edit. Although this isn’t new to me, I found it was something I couldn’t go over lightly.

Why people should buy it – It’s a creative way to learn more about the Bible and about God’s creation.



  1. Thank you for featuring my new children's activity book!

  2. Great to see a shot of the book's interior. What an appealing design!

  3. Thanks, Janet, I'm really happy with the illustrations that Esther Haug created and the layout that Diane at byDesign Media produced.

  4. This is a nice book - sometimes its hard for science-minded Christians to find material that isn't lopsided. I'll be doing the official review early next week.
