The Creation Story

Authors: Autumn Ward, Joseph Goode

The Creation Story introduces preschoolers to the truth that God made everything. Told through an engaging, easy-to-understand rhyme, it highlights what God did on each day of creation, including the seventh day.

Beautifully illustrated, this 20-page board book is durable enough for even the youngest of children and was designed to help them remember key truths about the story of creation.

The Creation Story (written by Autumn Ward, illustrated by Joseph Goode) is part of the First Look Devotional Series, a collection of books designed to give young children a first impression of their heavenly Father.


“As a mom and a ministry leader, I know how crucial it is for my preschooler to understand the basic truth that ‘God made me.’ The Creation Story tells the story of the whole of creation in a fun rhyme and beautiful illustrations all the while reminding preschoolers they are God’s greatest, most important creation. This book is a must have for me in my small groups and in my home!”—Kelly Stockdale, Family Director, The Hill

“What a great book for introducing children to the story of creation—they will want to read it over and over it again! It’s captivating, fun to chant aloud, and a great way to begin reading God’s Word with any age.”—Lauren Bowman, writer and mother of five

“Memorable, quotable, and moving. The beautiful illustrations make this epic story come to life, and your child will likely memorize the lovely rhymes—imprinting God’s story on their hearts at an early age. The Creation Story will make your child fall in love with God’s story, and even parents will be happy to read this book over and over again.”—Julie Tiemann, writer and mother of two
