Seven Special Days, written by Henrietta D. Gambil, is a short picture book about the creation of the universe. Like most books about creation, this one starts with the beginning, when there was nothing at all, and ends with the seventh day, when God rested. Then, the author adds this paragraph:Im glad that God created Everything we can see.But most of all Im gladThat he loves even me!Thank you, God.As you can see, the text is in rhyme. Parts of it are fine (like this verse), but there are many parts where the rhyme scheme is forced or the rhythm is off. Although this is true, the text also includes repetition at the end of most of the verses, making it more readable and enjoyable for kids.The mostly bright illustrations by Hallie Gillett are cute, cartoon-like and very kid-friendly.What I Like: The illustrations are my favorite part, especially the depiction of the creation of Eve!What I Dislike: Ive said it before, and Ill probably say it again, books written in rhyme are very difficult to do well. Unfortunately, this is another example of the when the rhyme just doesnt work well.Overall Rating: Good.Christian Children's Book Review
