Ken Ham & Bodie Hodge. Green Forest, Ark.: Master Books, 2013. 48 pp. (Small Hardcover).
These two attractive and colorfully illustrated books, part of a larger set of six, provide answers to questions kids might ask. The focus of each book is an aspect (or two) of biblical, scientific or historical topics. Volume 5 focuses on space and astronomy, while volume 6 fields questions on Babel and the Ice Age.
Since the books are produced by the Answers in Genesis organization, parents can feel assured the answers provided to their children will come from a biblical worldview. Each answer begins with a Bible verse, then goes on to provide information suitable for children between the ages of 5 and 11. Some of us who are a little over 11 might actually learn something from these books too. Did you know that archaeological remains still exist that are widely believed to be the Tower of Babel? Neither did I. Better get a set of these books if you want to be smarter than an 11 year old.
