An artist creates things, and this one is no different. From a young child to his elder years, he draws and creates things.

I love Eric Carle’s books since they are always so cute and almost fun, even now, even though I am an adult.

Even though I like his picture books, this one seems to touch the legend of creation and God, so it kind of turns me off from that point. It kind of makes it simple, but most parents will not like one of the illustrations. The illustration is of a naked man and woman, which is why this book is banned/challenged. If that kind of image/picture is a problem, find a piece a paper or something and cover the whole picture before you read the book to your kid. Or, you can just cover from the head down before reading it. Just so you know, it is AFTER the sun page.

The illustrations are really very simple, but they are also kind of boring at the same time. However, I think it is creative how he can illustrate his own books with tissue paper, but it is still a little bleh for me. Also, the text is very easy to see/read because it is either on a black or white background with text being either white or black as well.

Anyways, I found this book kind of average and not really worth reading, but it is up to you if you think it is worth reading to your child.
