The Creation: The Story of How God Created the World

Shelia Cassidy, Author, Sheila Cassidy, Author, Emma Stubbs-Hunk, Illustrator Crossroad Publishing Company $9.95 (36p) ISBN 978-0-8245-1506-5
In the beginning, God created the world using a lump of clay and a ball of wool. At least, that is how it reads in this wonderfully joyful retelling of the Creation story by Sheila Cassidy. God, who is both a male farmer and an old lady knitting, creates the world, day by day, delighting in his/her creation. Exuberant, full-color illustrations of animals, fish, stars, rain and the first people are a delight. Cassidy's gentle humor--God forgets his own desire for that morning cup of coffee when he realizes his creation is thirsty and he needs to create rain--will captivate children and parents alike, making this a favorite book for reading together. Ages 5-10. (Mar.)
