In Our Image: God's First Creatures
Before creating humans, God said, "Let us make humans in Our image, after Our likeness." In this playful new twist to the Genesis story, God asks all of nature to offer gifts to humankind--with a promise that the humans would care for creation in return. Then, woman and man were formed from the dust of the earth, in the image of God, and in the image of all of nature. And it was very good, indeed. Whether you're large like the whale, small like the ant, lazy like the lizard, or busy like the bee, this spirited story with its lively illustrations celebrates the interconnectedness of nature and the harmony of all living things.
