About the book:

This four-color, Gold Medallion Book Award winner is a perfect tool that offers solid, biblical answers to some of the tough questions kids ask about evolution and our world.

“Did Earth begin with a ‘Big Bang’ cosmic explosion?”
“Does science contradict the Bible?”

“What happened to dinosaurs?”

“Is there life on other planets?”

“Did we evolve from apes?”

“What makes my body work on its own?”

Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. It’s not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. It’s up to us as parents and Christian leaders to make sure our children know the truth about the creation of the world. With thousands of evidences to prove He created and sustains the universe, It Couldn’t Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of God’s marvelous works.

My Take:
I loved this book...from the title to the pictures to the way it was laid out!  It is full of reasons why evolution can't work and why other theories fail and how the Bible can fill in some of those blanks.  It is a great fit for the 9-12 year old who is questioning why their teacher teaches them one thing and they are learning something different in school.   There are many Bible verses that are included to make the point on topic and most would be great memory verses.  The end of the chapters have some great Just For Fun activities to do as a whole family...great family time!  I wouldn't go much younger than 9 or 10 because it can be a little in depth in places.  I did review this as an e-book..but am going to look for the physical copy to share with my kids!
If you have kids who are questioning or are just looking for more reinforcement of faith...pick this up!

I was given a copy of this book by BookSneeze for an honest review.  No other compensation was given and I was not required to even like the book!
