Too Narrow Focused
This book designed for children from the ages of 4 to 7 is written by Andrew Babick, and illustrated by Bryan Pickens. The book tells a story of a young boy who challenges basically the idea of Darwins Theory of Evolution.
Heavily tinged with religion, this book is written in a way that does not really teach, it more so tell the reader that the Bibles teachings are right and what kids are taught in school about evolution is wrong.
That is fine, however where I feel this book falls short is the way the writer goes about it in the story. Edited in a cohesive and proper manner, well put together book wise, the story just leans to far right for my liking, and may scare some kids who do not have exposure to certain Christian teachings.
So I give it
