Luci Shaw's Genesis for Children

I knew Luci Shaw when I lived in Wheaton, Illinois.  At that time I attended Bethany Chapel, where she and Harold had been members for many years.  Luci's poetry and story telling is always expertly crafted and full of life.  That is the case with her book The Genesis of It All, illustrated by Sr. Huai-Kuang Miao and Sr. Mary Lane.

Here is a review of the book:

In her inimitable style, Luci Shaw presents the Genesis narrative in fresh and contemporary language that sparks the imagination. You will delight in “watching” as God creates, first in black and white, and then bursting into color.

Experience the exhilaration of the Creation and the Creator as work of art and great artist, developed in richness and diversity. Whether you are young or old, you will find yourself in the picture as you reflect on the Creator’s purpose in bringing human beings into the world.

"A luminous and rambunctious book. Shaw imbues the Old Testament account of the Creation with a joyful bounce that will be irresistible to children of all ages. Her God is kindly, imaginative, and mischievous—a father who loves his creation and wants nothing better than to delight his children. Shaw's poetic talents and spiritual wisdom combine to breathe new life into a familiar story." —Suzanne Wolfe, author of The Unveiling.
From here.
