|Doesn't he look cute!?|
However. The text of this book leaves something to be desired. It's an attempt at a really fun book with a good cadence to the text, but it just falls flat. The text doesn't quite rhyme and in some places, the words they use create a bit of a SoapBox in my opinion (do we really need to be telling kids that boys can't use lipstick?). I could let most of those things slide, but then there's a scripture usage error at the end! As I read through the book, I was thinking "ok, not my favorite, so it's a 'like it' book" and then with the second to the last page, the scripture error made this a "leave it" book.
If Biblical accuracy isn't your thing or important to you, I'm sure it's a fine book. But since the ending is an attempt to make a point based on scripture, it seems like the point should be a correct one, right!?

|God did not say animals were "very good."|
He only said that about people. There is a difference.
