7 Days of Awesome is a hard cover children's book, written in rhyme. (There is also a dust jacket. Both the dust jacket and the hard cover feature the same cover image.)

The rhyming text in 7 Days of Awesome feels Dr. Seuss-ish. It is very fun to read and the colorful pictures are great, too.

I have read many children's books about creation, and I feel like 7 Days of Awesome is definitely one of the most (if not the most) entertaining. I'll definitely be reading this one with my kids again and again. Five stars, for sure!

I personally believe that our children should be taught about creation and our Creator as soon as they are able to understand. For my children that started at about age one or a little after. Creation is the one thing that you can start off with and it's pretty easy to do. Mainly because they are extremely interested in the world around them at that age. This book is a great one to start out with because like it says in the summary above it has a Dr. Suess type feel and I loved the illustrations, as well.

A very sweet, tenderhearted book appropriate for ages 4-8. Such a sweet loving book that explores not only the world around them but also the creation of 'them". I loved the rhyming pattern on this one. Very funny and precious all at one time. Definitely awesome overload!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 3/5/2016)

I have to post this review on Dr. Suess's birthday! He sure paved the way for rhyming books and getting silly! This book is sure to do the same thing that Dr. Suess books did to you... make you laugh! So good job Shawn Byous on the awesome rhyming to retell Genesis 1, creation.

The pictures are delightful as well as the retelling of creation. Make sure you add this one to your library so your little ones can beg you to read it over and over again which will be a win win as they will remember the events of creation!

We all love a book that gets a good belly laugh! Go get your copy today from Zondervan. Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine. (Posted on 3/4/2016)

This is truly the most unique book I've ever seen on the story of creation. 7 Days of Awesome takes the story of creation to a whole new level and makes it interesting and light hearted for the young.

I think it's tricky to make any Bible story humorous while keeping it authentic and respectful and Shawn Byous does an outstanding job of both. I love that everything rhymes. It makes it whimsical and easy to follow along. I've noticed that my early readers in first and second grade really like things that rhyme when they are reading outloud.

My toddler really enjoys this story as well and since he's just learning to talk, he liked to point out the picture of all the things he knew in the wonderful illustrations by Colin Jack.

This book has been likened to the style of Dr. Seuss and I definitely agree with that. It has that whimsy and style to it. While the illustrations aren't so Seuss like, the writing style definitely is.

The only downside is the price. I don't like when books are overpriced. Reading should be affordable for everyone and this one is a little steep!

The story of creation has been told over and over in many different ways but 7 Days of Awesome is a truly unique version that kids and parents will love. (Posted on 3/3/2016)

Who doesn't love a good rhyming book? Finding one that also delivers a message of the 7 days of Creation is pretty unique. 7 Days of Awesome is just that...AWESOME! This whimsical read-aloud has a Dr. Seuss feel and is sure to capture your child's attention.

While most of us are familiar with Genesis 1, this is the only one I have ran across that rhymes it's way through the 7 days of creation. Rhyming is a great way to remember facts, and this book takes the cake. My five-year old loved this book so much, we read it three times straight. I can't blame him really. I have to say that I had a blast reading it.

Not only is this book fun to read, but the illustrations are pretty awesome too!

Highly recommend this book for all ages!!
