Angels Whisper the Story of Creation Revised - Second Edition
About the Book
A ngels Whisper the Story of Creation is a faithful retelling of the account of creation in Genesis 1, written so small children will fall in love with the story. It is a story that describes the love of a Heavenly Father who created children in his image and gave them a home and a purpose in life. The author, father of four and grandfather of three, wanted to make Genesis 1 fun and easy for small children to read and understand. Whimsically written rhyme and elegant watercolor illustrations by Russell Oliviera make this a story to be read and enjoyed over and over again.
“I want children to learn and to know that God created because God loves,” states the author. “This is why hearts figure so prominently in the illustrations and why Psalm 136:1–9 is included at the end of the book. Everything we see around us and every form of life exists because God is love.”
