Beginning with the story of Creation, the Bible teaches us to use and respect the land, conserve natural resources, and save energy. The Bible stories of Noah, Abraham, Joshua and others are retold, and reinforced with activities that will help young readers understand how to nurture and protect the environment.
Did you know that Abraham was the first person to understand the importance of sustainable herding? That Joseph was the first to develop guidelines for natural disaster planning? That Moses performed the first water desalination experiment? Or that Joshua was the first to successfully harness the sun's energy? From starting anew with Noah to the wisdom of a sabbatical year for the earth, Green Bible Stories for Children illustrates how the Bible provides the blueprint for environmental protection. This eye-opening book contains eight engaging stories told in a friendly, entertaining manner, each followed by 2-3 relevant, easy-to-do experiments and projects.
