First — this excellent book, The Day the World Went Wacky, is a creative telling of the Fall and then redemption found through Jesus. It starts off with a little boy at the dentist wondering why bad things happen. And, let me tell you, I get that question. There have been times in my own life where, I too, have pondered the hard parts of life. In fact, just this morning Caleb, who is reading the book above, asked us why Samuel had to have Celiac. We both told him to remember the book The Day the World Went Wacky and how this world is not perfect, and that there is sin, and because of that there are hard things. Like Celiac Disease.
It goes on to retell the story of the Fall but then leads to Jesus and why we need Jesus in our lives. My kids greatly enjoyed the book and I love how it begins with the simple question of why there is bad in the world and ends with how Jesus saved us. Praise to Him!
Second — this globe. Which my kids begged and begged and begged to put together. Chloe finally won, after, of course, I was able to snap some obligatory pictures of the box. This is a heavy duty globe. I was concerned because it was a puzzle, but let me tell you it is DURABLE. My boys just might have played catch in the living room in the middle of winter with that globe.
Isn’t that puzzle awesome? Love the precision in which it’s to be created — which is a beautiful example of how our world was created by the Lord. Now, it takes a bit of work to put it together, but once it’s done — amazing!
