Overview Explains that God loves all creatures and points out the things that can be learned by examining the world's wildlife, including how to emulate the patience of penguins and the perseverance of goats.
Publishers Description A creation devotional for children ages 6-10, which shows detailed, pen and ink illustrations of animals -- mammals, insects, birds -- paired with a description of each, then an application for the youthful reader. In exploring God's awesome nature, it is helpful for children to understand God's design for them. For example, just as the monarch butterfly emerges from a cocoon to soar to heights above the clouds, so too can we all rest in the knowledge that God has made each of us special, and He has great love and a plan for us.

More About Helen Haidle & Paul Haidle
When Helen was growing up, she never planned to be a writer. Twenty years later she's privileged to be an award-winning author of 45 books. Forty of these books were published with major Christian publishing houses such as Multnomah, Zondervan, Thomas Nelson, Baker Books, New Leaf Press, and Harvest House. Total sales number over 1,700,000.
Together with David, her artist husband, she launched out in 1987 on an assignment they felt called to do - working on a picture book of Psalm 23. When the Haidles realized their own three children couldn't understand the meaning of the words of Psalm 23, although they had memorized it, they spent a year writing and illustrating a picture book to help explain the psalm in depth.
When He is My Shepherd was released in 1989, it won a C. S. Lewis Silver Award. This launched a writing career for Helen and she began writing other picture books, chapter books, devotionals and board books for the youngest children. David transitioned from his fine-art career of lithography and painting large nature images on canvases of 4'x5' and 6'x10.' He learned watercolor and began painting on a greatly reduced format - 11"x16."
Helen Haidle currently resides in the state of Oregon.

I Hope They Are Creating Another One Of These... Nov 10, 2006
My son requests one of these every night. The way they tie the animals abilities/features to a portion of scripture is very cool. We are almost done with this one and I will definitely be passing it around to my son's friends. I hope there is another edition in the works.
More than a devotional - this is awesome! Jul 17, 2004
I just bought this to use with my 5 yr. old. She LOVES animals & nature. This devotional is perfect for her.
There are 45 creatures discussed in this book. Each devotion starts off talking about a creature and it's habits. Then, that info is used to correlate it to what the Bible says about that particular behavior. The next section asks about that aspect in the child's life. Lastly, a memory verse accompanies each devotion.
Not only are you learning a memory verse, having self reflection, doing character building, and learning what the Bible has to say about various traits and behaviors, you are also getting a lesson in nature and science. Even I am learning things about God's creatures that I didn't know.
This book wins hands down over any other devotional I've looked at. The reading is easily understood by children; it's not too deep for them. I think it's awesome having a book like this that discusses things readily available in our world/environment, and it seems that children can easily relate to the creatures behaviors/traits being discussed. It uses simple, curious traits of God's creatures to grab everyone's attention.
I'm using this along with several readers I have to accent our science lessons, character building, and Bible study in our homeschool curriculum.
I can't rave enough!
This is the 1st devotional my 7 year old son really enjoys Oct 13, 2003
I have purchased many devotionals for my son that have not reached him. It is usually like pulling teeth to get him to read the bible or do a devotional. God's Amazing Creatures and Me is the devotional I've been searching for. He looks forward to each session and even begs me to read more than 1 a day with him. It takes an interesting fact about an animal and relates it to the Christian walk. I am amazed how he remembers the point from previous days.
