Absotively Posilutely Best Evidence for Creation {Review & Twitter Party}

Are you looking for ways to point out evidence for Creation to your little ones?

We received Absotively Posilutely Best Evidence for Creation by Carl Kerby as part of the Moms of MasterBooks review team.

In this book, a young boy named Denny learns what the BEST evidence for Creation is and rushes off to tell his friends.  Each of the three friends that he encounters has a different piece of evidence to share.

One of the things that I love about the children’s books published by MasterBooks and New Leaf Publishing Group is that there always seem to be neat facts about nature that we didn’t know about.

For instance, did you know that the bull giraffe’s heart is 2.5 FEET long?  We had fun measuring the length of our torsos to see if a 2.5 foot long heart would fit very well in our own bodies.  (not so much!)

We also learned that the giraffe’s skin is very tight which helps force the blood back up to the heart from the lower body.  They also have the SAME number of neck bones as humans – 7!
What’s interesting about this is that it takes almost 500 lbs of muscles and tendons to work their necks.  If they had more neck bones, then they would need MORE muscles and neck bones, meaning that they would have more weight in their neck.   If they had many more neck bones, they wouldn’t be able to drink without falling over!

We knew that frogs can bury themselves in the mud to survive the cold winters, but did you know that the Eastern Wood frog can survive even after more than 60 percent of their body freezes during the winter?

How about meeting a frog that weighs almost 10 pounds with 12-inch legs and a 12-inch body?  That would be the Goliath frog – I wouldn’t want to encounter one of those!

One of my favorite parts is when they talk about worldview.  “The Bible is like a pair of glasses that we look through to understand the world……The Bible takes blurry things and makes them clear!”
