Another lovely children's book from Glenys Nellist. She is quickly becoming a favourite author for toddlers/preschoolers. I look forward to checking out more of her work.

Good News! It's Creation! is such a wonderful book for children, going through the creation story. The illustrations are just so sweet and wonderful, and the story is very good as well.

I loved the images in this book, they were stunning!

I like the rhyming nature of the book and thought it was a great way to tell the story of creation. My daughter is 5 and has been learning about this at school so it was a hit with her, she goes to our local Catholic Primary school and is really enjoying learning the RE side.

It is 5 stars from me for this one, perfect for children right from a very young age.
I thought it was a fab little book! Very highly recommended!

What a cute book about god’s love for everyone and what he has created for all of his children! I loved this one and will be purchasing as gifts for my niece and nephew! Thanks netgalley for the advanced copy.

Good news! This book was absolutely lovely. Not only does it attest to the Creation story, but also shows how creation glorifies God. The illustrations were adorable. They were bright enough to keep my infant son engaged, but have so many animals, etc to keep his interest as he gets older too. The repetition of “Good News!” and rhymes on each page kept his interest and made it fun to read. And I love the idea of him learning these easy worshipful sayings that we can easily use in our everyday lives even as he’s so young. I already have another Good News book on the way because I enjoyed this one so much.

Another delightfully cute little book you would enjoy reading to your kids anytime. It would bring a smile to your child’s face upon seeing the characters. They are quirky and fun, educative and enjoyable. It teaches about creation and how it all came about.

To be quite fair, I'm an atheist, but this is a cute book to gift Christian parents. Religion aside, the illustrations are beautiful. So are the affirmations. I was a little triggered by the jellyfish, but that's another thing entirely.

This is a great book for children. It has beautiful illustrations and tells the story of creation.
This book and any book by Glenys Nellist would make a great gift for any child.
I received a complimentary copy from Our Daily Bread Publishing via NetGalley and was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

While the idea of the book was good and the illustrations are attractive, I was left with the feeling that something was missing. The story presented by the author did not start from the first day of creation. This left me with the feeling that I came in during the middle of the conversation. Therefore, I was disappointed.

As I would have preferred the author to present the entire story of creation, this is not a book I would recommend for personal use with children or even as I gift.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the publisher and Net Galley but the thoughts expressed are my own.

Good News! It's Creation is a beautiful picture book that tells of God creating the Earth and all of its creation in 6 days. The illustrations are eye-catching and the words are easy for young children to understand. This book accurately depicts the Genesis account of creation.
Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book for my honest opinion.

Good News! It's Creation! by Glenys Nellist - Our Daily Bread for Kids Presents Board book
This book has amazing illustrations of God’s creation. I love the beautiful rhyming verses describing the Good News as seen in creation. This series is such a breath of fresh air compared to some of the children’s books I’ve seen recently. Gleny's Good News series should be a part of every child’s library.
I would like to thank NetGalley and Our Daily Bread Publishing for a free eARC of this book.

Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good! Genesis 1:31

It is good to see the goodness of God. This book encourages parents and children to see the goodness of God in creation. It is good news. God cares for us and this world. The illustrations are vivid colors and it is a good reminder to see. Highly recommend.

A special thank you to Our Daily Bread Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review

This Book Will Become a Favorite!

The words will fill their hearts and the illustrations will capture their eyes.

Bedtime at our house was usually when my kids pulled out their favorite books. This would have been one of them. Partly because it is short but meaningful and also visually it would allow them to explore the pages.

Perfect for gift giving!

Thanks to Netgalley and Our Daily Bread Publishing for a free digital copy.

An adorable book about how God created the each facet of the world to show us the good news about who He is. I love the illustrations and the way the message is shared.

I'm quickly becoming an avid fan of Glenys' work. This is the second book of her's I've had the pleasure of reading and I have a third one on deck for the Advent season.

Good News! It's Creation is about the Genesis creation story. Short, sweet, and fun, this is one that I could read to my son at night and quickly memorize. Teaching scripture is frankly overwhelming to me, but Nellist's books make it so accessible. The illustrations in this one are lovely and fun. There's so much detail showing on every page and the art adds fullness to Glenys' words. Bonus: Adam and Eve are accurately depicted in the proper skin tone.

So, if you're a parent looking for a book to add to your library that is accessible for teaching the bible, look no further!

This is a sweet rhyming story about the creation of the earth. The illustrations were the best part, with each page more colorful and fantastic than the last. However, I did feel something was lacking in the narrative.

This is a warm, happy, sweet little book that helps children start on the right spiritual path, as it celebrates the concept of God as a Creator in simple language, and beautiful illustrations. A keeper for Christian families and a gift suggestion for little folks on your gift list.

Great way for younger kids to learn about God's Creation. Brightly colored pages. Eye catching illustrations.. We enjoyed the book & will gladly share it with others.

(I review books & was able to preview this book in exchange for my honest review).

I'm quickly falling in love with these sweet children's and toddler books from Glenys Nellist. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful, for one. But you also can't beat wholesome stories such as the creation story.

I love how this book was based on scripture in a way that was captivating for toddlers. For those who hold a 2CV conviction, this book is also safe for you. The artwork was stunning, as well.

Another really gorgeous, engaging, beautiful children's book from this author. I love the creativity on each page, how every different creation got its own perfect verb. The stars twinkle, the mountains shout, the trees wave - it's just perfect. I really love the artwork, but the message - that everything God made is so, so good - is wonderful for our little ones to learn so young.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the free copy in exchange for this honest review.

A super sweet book for children! Our children absolutely enjoyed reading this book. I would like to give them a hardback copy to hold and read on their own. For those looking for good books to fill the nursery shelves, this would make a great addition to it. The book is full of colorful illustrations, good messages, and set to a child’s understanding levels. It would also make a good gift for baby showers, children or grandchildrens birthdays, or even get a couple copies just to pass on to children in your life.

I received a copy of this book as a gift. I received no financial compensation for reviews.
