The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows his handiwork (Psalm 19:1). The first six verses of Psalm 19 explain that God’s creation shows His glory. Melanie Burgess shares this viewpoint in her children’s book, Fingerprints of God. This book is excellent for teaching your children Bible verses reflecting God’s glory and control in nature. Melanie shows that the sky, mountains, plants, and animals show God exists and has left His signature for all to see. As you read this book to or with your child, ask questions about noticing God’s hand at work in the world. For example, science says a bumblebee should not be able to fly, but it does. Is this not part of God’s fingerprint with some humor? In addition, this book shares many different species of animals that your child may not be familiar with. Use this as an opportunity to learn more about nature and the God of nature.
Not only is Melanie Burgess an outstanding creative writer, but she is also a talented illustrator. She writes about seeing God in nature and then illustrates her points. Your child will enjoy seeing the different animals and scenery. You can see the hand of God in all aspects of creation. Share with your child that God shows His existence and it is up to the individual to look for those fingerprints. True science never contradicts the Word of God. Melanie desires to share God and His love for His creation. She does this masterfully, and God will honor her work. Fingerprints of God is one book that needs to be on the shelf of every child who lives in a Christian home. Help your child understand that the God Who created the universe and everything in it is the same God that created and loves them.
