Thank-you ZonderKidz for sending me a copy of "Let There Be Light" to review. All opinions expressed are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.
The first thing I want to talk about in this book are the beautiful pictures. When you turn a page in this book you see a huge wonderful picture that is jumping off the page.
Creation is a fun topic to discuss with children and this book makes it even more special with the bright pictures and the easy to read and understand text. My 6 year old and 2 year old both love paging through the pages of this book .
This book is available for purchase on January 7th!! Add this book to your personal library or your kids church library!
