"Did Earth begin with a 'Big Bang' cosmic explosion?"
"Does science contradict the Bible?"
"What happened to dinosaurs?"
"Is there life on other planets?"
"Did we evolve from apes?"
"What makes my body work on its own?"

Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. It's not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. It's up to us as parents and Christian leaders to make sure our children know the truth about the creation of the world. With thousands of evidences to prove He created and sustains the universe, It Couldn't Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of God's marvelous works.

One of the tough topics in parenting is explaining creation versus evolution in a way that makes sense to children.  Children are very inquisitive and want to know facts and reasons behind tough topics.  As a parent who believes in creation, it is my job to present the facts about creation to my children who are only exposed to evolution in the public school system.  One of the hardest parts about this, for me, is explaining hard to understand facts in a way that a child can understand.  This book helped me to do just that. 

It Couldn’t Just Happen has a clear message that enabled my children to understand why things “just don’t happen.” One of the worst answers to give a child is “Just because”, “I don’t know” or “Because I said so.”  Just like adults, children want to make up their own minds based on facts and proof.  Faith is something each person decides for themselves.  This book offers proof and explanation to parents and children in an interesting and dynamic way.  It’s a great book that explains scientific facts, creationism and evolution in a manner that is understandable, fun and interesting.  The book includes great pictures, fun experiments and biblical references along with scientific information that the whole family will enjoy.  My daughter loved the experiments.  It was a great interactive section.  I would recommend this book, especially if you home school or have children in public school.  I don’t suggest the e-book version.  I think you’ll want a physical copy for this one.
