God’s Wildest Wonderment of All by Paul Thigpen, with beautiful illustrations by John Folley, is a wonderful book exploring the uniqueness and gifts of all of God’s creatures and especially the dignity of the person.
It was a pleasure to receive this book and share the illustrations and discuss with my son the amazing creatures God has created and most importantly, human dignity. Weaving a love and curiosity for animals with solid theology, this was a book my family enjoyed.
My son enjoyed the book and all the animals it discussed, it arrived in perfect time for him to share with his class prior to a field trip to the zoo. Especially as a veterinarian, I enjoyed the appreciation of all of God’s creation.
With beautiful rhymes and illustrations, it is an engaging book and is pleasant to read. With words like “Yet every beast, like girl or boy, makes some small gift to God’s own joy,” the book is full of enthusiasm and shares in the joy of God’s creation. It would make a great gift for a teacher or family member, especially those who love animals!
