This book tells the story of the creation of the world with a southern black country style. The illustrations gorgeously capture the details of the seven days of creation. This is great to introduce how stories get passed down from generation to generation. Read full review

This was a great book as soon as I started reading I felt like I was reading the book of Genesis out of the bible. This would be a great book to explain to the younger generation for them to learn how the world was started. Read full review
