Marvels of Creation by Buddy & Kay Davis

marvels-sea Did You Know?

  • The skin on a walrus can be over three inches thick and the fat under it up to six inches thick, protecting this amazing creature from the 100ยบ below temperatures of the Arctic.
  • A giant squid’s eye can measure up to nine inches across.
  • What an incredible design these animals have! The Master Creator made such wonderful and beautiful animals for our enjoyment!
    Children and adults both will delight in this illustrated guide to birds of the world. Filled with spectacular photographs and “bird brevities”- it is great for any home or school library.

    And God created…every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good (Genesis 1:21).

    8 X 8 • Casebound • 80 pages

    Buddy Davis is a speaker and singer/songwriter for Answers in Genesis (AiG) in Hebron, Kentucky. There he leads the “Creation Adventure” children’s workshop at AiG conferences. His easy-to understand style makes him popular with listeners of all ages and he plays a variety of acoustic and folk-style instruments.

    Heidi Says . . . We love this book.  My 9-year-old has  been studying swimming creatures throughout her 5th grade year, and I thought this book would tie in perfectly.  I was not disappointed. 

    Each 2-page spread of Marvels of Creation – Sensational Sea Creatures contains a full-page picture (in full color) on the left hand side, and an information page on the right.  In addition to the information, each page also contains a box with extra information about each creature, such as scientific name, length, weight, life span, special design features, and a “did you know?” fact.  The color pictures are real photographs, and are bright and eye-catching.  The information is easy to read, yet very informative and interesting. 

    Not only would this book make a great supplement to any marine life study, but it’s also just plain fun.  This is definitely a book that we will pick up and look at over and over again throughout the years.  My youngest (4) loves looking at the pictures, while the rest of us very much enjoy the information gained from this book. 

    One of my favorite aspects of this book is the fact that it is written from a Christian perspective.  I love this quote, taken directly from the introduction:

    “It say in the Bible that God created the sea creatures on day five. In most of the books, films, or programs you see today, God is not even mentioned, but these media are filled with evolutionary theories stated as facts. This book is meant to give God the glory for creating these wonderful creatures of the sea.” [emphasis mine]

    I would highly recommend this book.  If you’re looking for other books where God is the focus, check out New Leaf Publishing.
