Number of Pages: 
40 p.
Note: 
A pairing of luscious acrylic illustrations with an adapted version of Genesis 1 and 2 from the King James Bible. The text has not been simplified (words like void and firmament remain) and creative details such as “And God created the great whales” have been added. The masculine pronoun “he” is used and only the sixth and seventh day are identified. Picture books depicting the creation story are plentiful in most Jewish libraries and several adhere more strictly to the biblical text from a Jewish perspective.
