TOS Review: Amazing Animals by Design

Why is a giraffe's neck so tall? 

Why do zebras have stripes?

Did all of these things happen by accident? 

When John and Sarah visit the zoo, they ask these questions and many more. Their parents and the zookeepers keep using the word design, but what does that mean? With its relevant message and exciting presentation, this is the perfect book to help introduce children to intelligent design.

You've read books that answer these questions before.  Usually the reason given is due to their 'environment.' Or maybe and old legend or tale.  Worse yet, part of their 'ever evolving features.'  Not this time!!  

My children and I loved this adorable book!  It has a great story line that kept their attention through the entire book.   The dialog is perfect.  I don't like books that feel like the story line was forced to make a point.  Amazing Animals by Design is not that way at all, it flows wonderfully and entertained old and young alike!  The pictures are vibrant and eye-pleasing.  Just  perfect.  

The best part, though, is that author Debra Haagen gives the correct answer to these questions!  Crediting an intelligent, purposeful creation made by an amazing God!  

She chooses 7 different animals (pictured on the front of the book) and explains how they were specially created to be able to survive in their chosen homes.  I loved reading these facts, some of which even I hadn't ever heard about before.  

Simply one of the VERY BEST books I have read.  I HIGHLY recommend Amazing Animals by Design!!!!

Amazing Animals by Design by Debra Haagen is available in print ($8.99)  or eBook format ($7.99), and is available from Tate Publishing and Enterprises.
