Publishers Description

In "The Creation Story, " Deacon John P. Audia provides children with a simple version of the classic story of Creation illustrated in word and sign. Through engaging full-color images and rhyming verses he captures the attention of children, both deaf and hearing, and reminds them that God is living in them and that they are a special part of God's creation.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Creation Story: In Words and Sign Language?

Children will enjoy this book  May 24, 2007
Deacon John P. Audia is a hearing Deacon from the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York. He is very involved with deaf ministry, however, serving as Chaplain for the Deaf Community. In "The Creation Story: In Words and Sign Language," he has worked with illustrator David Spohn to create a simple, beautiful book designed to introduce children to both the Biblical creation story as well as the American Sign Language needed to tell the story.

The creation story is retold in poetic form, with each of the seven days having its own page. For example, on the first day,

God created Heaven and Earth
for you and me.
Earth began in nothing
but darkness, wind, and sea.
Then Earth became bright
as "God created light."

On the facing page is a simple illustration of what was created that day. The colors used are very calming, predominantly blues, which make this a very relaxing book to look at. Children will love to look at the pictures and to learn the signs while at the same time gaining a deeper appreciation for God's act of creation.
