Booklist*, School Library Journal

School Library Journal

The content is exactly what the title implies. This is a picture book version of the creation story as told in Genesis. It has minimal text taken from the King James Bible. It begins with God separating the light and darkness and ends with the seventh day of rest. There is no additional text or information. Each simple, childlike acrylic painting corresponds directly to the text, but this version does not stand out in an already crowded field of excellent options. VERDICT A pleasing addition for fans of Rylant and church libraries looking for multiple versions of Bible tales.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH
