Customer Reviews for New Leaf Press My Creation Bible

New Leaf Press My Creation Bible

With delightful illustrations, this board book is uniquely written to explain the Bible for today's children who are often confused by the conflict between the Bible and evolutionary beliefs that try to dismiss it. Ken Ham, in a powerful series of rhymes, summarizes the main events of the Bible and gives answers that not only help children be secure in their beliefs but also prepares them to defend their faith. It covers the Bible's history of Creation and sin; details the flood of Noah, the Tower of Babel, and more; and connects sin that begin in the Garden of Eden to the need for Christ to offer us salvation. Inside, you'll also find a music CD. Recommended for ages 6 and under.

This is a wonderful book for toddlers and young children. So thankful for the ministry Ken Ham serves with. This book is based on the truth of Gods Word. We each have a choice whether to believe the Bible as absolute authority and truth or not. We don't however have the choice to change it or take some of it as true and leave other parts that we don't like out.
This book is a great way to teach children from a very young age to believe in Gods truth from His Word. It is child friendly and well done! Just bought this recently for our Sunday school children for Christmas gifts.

"Children need to know that the history in the Bible is real and explains today's world. Fossils, death, moral issues, and even the question of different people groups are all answered in the Bible - and it is this vital biblical foundation that children need as they grow up in a world increasingly hostile to God's truth." - Ken Ham
My Creation Bible is another wonderful creation resource from Ken Ham. This time, it's for the youngest creationists...toddlers and preschoolers.
This sweet book is written in factual, clever rhyme and beautifully illustrated. It contains the account of the Creation week until the Tower of Babel - PLUS God's plan of redemption. Salvation through Jesus Christ.
My 1 year old enjoyed looking at the pages and loved the accompanying music cd with the text of the book sung by Buddy Davis. I loved the truth contained within it's VERY sturdy and strong pages which will hold up long after cuddle time is over!

My Creation Bible, by Ken Ham includes fascinating illustrations, lots of truth from God’s Word, and a few rhymes that were really a stretch.
I like it, but I feel like this book is misnamed. It isn’t really a bible, as it goes from creation to Noah to the tower of Babel and then skips to Jesus rising from the grave. (Oh yeah, and there is one picture of the nativity scene right after Adam and Eve sin that I feel would be confusing to children. The point is to say that because of the sin they committed, we now needed a Savior and Jesus was born to fulfill that purpose. I get that, but skipping right back to Noah working on the ark on the next page is a bit confusing since Jesus didn’t actually arrive in human form for several thousand years!) So, though the stories in it are true, I don’t feel that it’s complete enough to truly be considered a bible.
The book covers the topics of the order of creation, the Garden of Eden and sin, dinosaurs, Noah and the flood (and subsequent fossil creation), the Tower of Babel and people groups, and Jesus being the door to heaven. In typical New Leaf fashion, there are lots of dinosaurs scattered throughout the book, which I mostly liked. Most bibles/children’s story books act like they never existed, but Ken Ham has them boarding the ark with the rest of God’s creation, which is much more likely what happened.
I hated that it seemed a little subpar in terms of being professionally published. I feel like this happens fairly often in Christian publishing and it’s a shame. The entire book rhymes and some of them were pretty hokey. Also, it felt like they were desperate to put as many dinosaurs as possible in the book just to prove a point and it just ended up being distracting.
The final test: My 20-month old LOVES it. She is constantly asking for, “Bye-Bul?? BIIIIBLE?” , wants to see the “Way-uhl” (one picture on one page and we must always find it!), and loves carrying it around with its little handle (a nice touch). I’m all for getting this little girl to love the bible (well, at least a few of it’s stories) at a young age, so of course I always oblige. I hope this book will mean even more to her as she grows up and can understand the stories in it more fully.

I received this book as a gift for my one-year-old daughter. It has beautifully illustrated pages and she has really enjoyed flipping through them. We had not gotten to actually read the book until tonight, however, since she just wanted to look at pictures. The book is written in rhyme, and we were really enjoying the flow of the poetry until we got to the part that says, "A man and a woman, that's what marriage should be." We are fully supportive of marriage between people who love one another in my house, so I found this to be offensive. I would not have been upset by that, though, had this book been written for older children. I do understand that many Christians believe that the Bible is against gay marriage, and I would have overlooked that and had a conversation with my daughter about acceptance, HAD SHE BEEN OLDER. However, this book is a board book which are intended for very young children, and whether you are for or against gay marriage, that is not an appropriate conversation to have with a toddler. Christians also believe that it is wrong to murder one another but that wasn't anywhere in this book, nor was there any other mention of the Ten Commandments. How does an author bring up marriage rights in a book meant to emulate the Bible, but then just skip over the cornerstone of the faith entirely? I found this to be so unsettling and offensive that this book is going directly into the trash.

Excellent child's Bible coming from Christain creation perspective. Highly recommend for a great gift idea for any child. Also, I suggest a visit to Creation Museum near Covington, Ky and Bible truths coming from same author Ken Ham and Jonathan Taylor, illustrator. Great adventures to remember.

Nice hardcover book with sturdy cardboard pages. Pictures are nicely done with lots of bright colors. Best of all the message from "Creation to the Cross" is accurate. There is a handle which makes it easy for little ones to carry. My almost 5 yr old & 3 yr old love it! I may need to purchase a 2nd one so, they each can have their own. There is also a CD enclosed (stores inside/between the cover & 1st page) of Buddy singing/reading the words in the book. It would make a great gift for any child.
