GOD’S CREATION WAITS: a free, downloadable PDF, for kids grades 2-5 and their adults, on noticing, appreciating, and protecting God’s Creation.

Written by acclaimed children’s author, Anne E. Neuberger, the 42-page booklet is designed to encourage children to develop an awareness for all of nature and to appreciate it as a gift from God. The activities, stories, and prayers will help them take joy every day in creation. From that awareness, this resource then strives to encourage a child’s curiosity about the natural world, and subsequently, a concern for it. These aspirations are all interwoven with an attitude of joy and thankfulness for a loving God.

It can easily be adjusted for younger children or family use, used as a supplement to a religious education curriculum in parishes and schools, and is a good resource for anyone wanting to observe the Season of Creation (September 1–October 4).
