We had the opportunity to review an eBook written by a fellow homeschooler. Amazing Animals by Design by Debra Haagen is a well written and illustrated book that explains why God created some animals the way they are. This book introduces the concept of Creation and Intelligent Design.
Quote from Debra Haagen’s website: “Why is a giraffe’s neck so tall? Why do zebras have stripes? Did all of these things happen by accident? When John and Sarah visit the zoo, they ask these questions and many more. Their parents and the zookeepers keep using the word design, but what does that mean? With its relevant message and exciting presentation, this is the perfect book to help introduce children to intelligent design. Come find out in Amazing Animals by Design by Debra Haagen!”
I read this book with my Kindergartener, David. He really enjoyed learning about the animals in this book. It is recommended for PreK to 3rd grade. Amazing Animals by Design has 24 pages and can be purchased as an eBook (pdf $7.99- compatible with most ereaders including, Sony, Nook, Kindle 2, iPad, and iPhone 4) or a paperback ($8.99).
We enjoyed reading about each animal this family saw at the zoo. The text of some pages was a little long for my busy boy, but we regained his attention with the next picture. We learned about animals we knew and some we didn’t know anything about. We would love to see other books like this! This just touched on a huge subject that we would love to learn more about!
