Marvels of Creation.. Breathtaking Birds truly is a breathtaking book by Buddy and Kay Davis. I love in the introduction to the book how it says "This book is different from most nature books in that it seeks to honor God as Creator and give all glory to Him." Several scripture verses are included in the introduction on the creation of the world and how God made the birds unique in their kind, not evolved from 'pond scum' as many nature books tend to discuss.
The book is arranged alphabetically for ease in locating a bird for a report or one you want to learn more about. A variety of birds from all over the globe are included, with bright, colorful photos and interesting facts.
Each bird has its typical statistics with the name origin, size, life span, and some special features. Interesting facts that showcase the nature of God in creating that specific bird are also included.
The last chapter in the book focuses on Intelligent Design and how the bird is perfectly made for flight with it's bone structure and feathers. It discusses all parts of the birds, eyes, bones, brain, systems and how none of these parts of a bird happened by chance, but by the Creator himself.
Great book for elementary age students to read to themselves and use for writing reports on birds, and great pictures for younger children to learn about the variety of species of birds that God created.
Master Books has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review
