Creative Children's Book
Sun does a nice job of not trying to stretch numbers to mean something they do not. Instead, she points to places of Scripture where these numbers show up, not trying to super spiritualize some meaning into them. I enjoyed reading this book to my sons and they really enjoyed it as well.
The illustrations are by Alex Foster and are very well done. They do a great job of illustrating the point that the author is making on each page. The only complaint I have is the portrayal of Noah's ark. All of the people and many animals are out on an observation deck (of sorts) while the flood is taking place. Scripture speaks of God shutting Noah in the ark and that he opened a window after the flood waters decreased and "the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat." While maybe not as visually appealing it would have been nice to see an ark that was to scale (even if no animals and people would have been visible).
Overall, I felt that Irene Sun communicated some good truths in a very readable manner for young children. I received a copy of this book from New Growth Press in exchange for an honest review.
