Care for Creation book review


I was at first a little skeptical when asked to review "Care for Creation" by Christy Baldwin, as I think the whole "environment thing" has been blown way out of proportion and terms like "climate change" or "globalisation" have been misused and misunderstood.

I'm glad to say this book takes a commonsense and, very importantly, a biblical approach to environmental care and every day living. Christy writes about caring for God's creation - reminding us that the world is not ours to own. 

The well illustrated book is a common sense guide for children (and perhaps parents?) and introduces ways to make a difference each day. Every page includes a bible reference. At the end of the book are suggested activities and discussion questions.


Christy is a stay at home Mum from Ohio. She holds a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a master's degree in Special Education.

You can also win a copy of the book here for a limited time.

Kelly - I'm always glad to hear when a reviewer is initially skeptical of a book. You can't take things at face value and it is always good to question things.

That's why it's great to hear that you heartily enjoyed CARE FOR CREATION. I'm glad that you appreciated the common sense approach of the book.

Thanks for sharing it with the readers of The Handmaden. We appreciate your support and were glad to have you as part of the blog tour.

Best wishes,
