My Review:

How Great is Our God is a wonderful book to explain the science piece of the things God has created. The book is broken down into 4 categories: space, Earth, animals, and people. Each scientific explanation begins with a scripture that coincides with the topic being covered.

For example, Pastor Giglio teaches about anteaters. He uses Psalm 141:3 which talks about controlling the tongue. Pretty appropriate considering the animal. Or there's thunder and lightning. He pairs that with Jeremiah 10:13. He also doesn't use the same version of the Bible for each scripture, which is something to take a small note of.

The topics each have a lovely illustration to go along with it. Most also have a photo that coincides with it. The illustrations are absolutely warm and inviting for the kids to get an idea of what they'll be learning about. I certainly hope to see more of Nicola Anderson's talent in future children's books that I come across.

After Pastor Giglio discusses the topic and infuses how God is involved in it, he gives a small prayer that helps children acknowledge God in what they're learning. Along with that, there's the "How Great!" section which gives a fact that correlates with the subject.

Even having not homeschooled, I think this would be a great book to pair with a science unit that would have the same information your child would cover. Just a quick, Biblical supplement to give a quick insight to what they'll be learning or what they've already learned.

Now you have the chance to win How Great is Our God! Five winners will be selected on 12/1/2019.
