The Beautiful Garden of Eden
By Gary Bower & Barbara Chotiner(Illustrator) / Tyndale Kids
The Beautiful Garden of Eden tells the story of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, allowing sin to ruin what was perfect and beautiful. The Faith that God Built series by Gary Bower uses the same whimsical style of storytelling as The House that Jack Built, using rhyme to introduce preschoolers through second graders to favorite Bible stories. Gary has a well-developed talent for creating engaging narratives that also teach biblical truths through rhyme.

The Beautiful Garden of Eden is a children’s book; suggested for readers ages 4-8. It tells of the events which took place in the Garden of Eden in a rhyming style. The rhyming style is used in the order of events happening in reverse and stacked upon each other whenever a new event is introduced.This presents a fun way to read the story and another way to remember the events and the order in which they occurred.
The illustrations are done by using bold and bright basic colors in each simple portrayal of the character and event.
