Book Reiveiw: I Love God's Green Earth - Michael & Caroline Carroll

Michael & Caroline do a great job of making this book interesting for children. The book teaches kids how to take care of the Earth that God had created. The fun facts are interesting along with some of the cool websites and other activities that kids can do. The book is very kid oriented (the pictures, page layouts) and the length of each devotion is the perfect length for kids. However I felt the book was more of of something you would use as a training tool than something as a devotional.

Each page has a new devotional for the day. While I like the layouts of the page, I didn’t care to much for the content in the devotions. Don’t get me wrong some were good, but some were really stretching what the verses were saying. Some I feel didn’t even go a long with the verses at all. The end of the book had some useful resource.

On a whole I would not recommend this book to others as a devotional for children, but as a training tool if this is something you are interested in teaching your children.

Action Steps that we take in our home:
~We use cloth diapers
~We are careful about turning off lights whenever we are finished in a room
~We also have a compost pile which we started last year.

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing for the purpose of reviewing.
