Baa! Oink! Moo! God Made the Animals is an adorable children’s book written by Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrated by David Walker, showing how animals are unique creations of God. This is the type of book that would make a great gift for a child! This book has been added to Oak Tree Reviews’ “Recommended Reading” list.
The drawings are darling; they have a cheerful and delicate look to them. The story flows with a nice rhyme scheme and well-chosen words. Even the text is formatted in an aesthetically appealing manner on the pages, with some animal sounds such as “oink,” “moo,” and “cheep” presented in bold, curvy letters for special emphasis. Parents may want to read the main text of the book and encourage their children to insert the animal sounds.
The boy and his mother look like they are having a lot of fun petting and playing with the animals. The mother seems like a kind, attentive parent who takes joy in her child’s joy, as she calmly watches him interact with the animals. The animals shown in the book are lambs and sheep, doves, pigs, a cow, chickens and chicks, puppies and kittens, horses, ducks, a goat, bunnies, and a cricket.
