The Best Reason of All to Get Giant Anteaters, Peacock Mantis Shrimp, Rufous Potoos & More!


You might be wondering why I am posting pretty much each day about the Life on the Goldilocks Planet  books - well, there are a few reasons why . . . first of all, this is a fantastic time to get a book, or two to provide a fun resource for the whole family - especially as children return to school! 

Secondly, it is a fantastic time to get a book, or two, as you think about which gifts to get for the children you love to engage them in learning about the word around them - these books will provide you a fun and engaging way to help the children you love learn whenever you are together. Thirdly, these books are a fantastic tool to help you hand down confident faith as you teach the "whys" - why we are able to believe God is real and God and science DO go together! And, finally, I thought you might enjoy these posts (and the questions/ photos which go with them) as they show you some of the interesting animals and information you will find in the books.

Take this photo as an example - did you know Golden Pheasants, Spiderman Lizards, and Stonefish were actual creatures? Have you heard about thermoregulation before? Do you know which animal lays thermoregulated eggs? (The answer is the Spiderman Lizard!) You will find these animals, along with Giant Anteaters, Binturongs, Mountain Lions, Peacock Mantis Shrimp, Zebras, Star-Nosed Moles, Black-Flanked Rock Wallabies, Northern Quolls & Rufous Potoos in the book - Giant Anteaters, Peacock Mantis Shrimp, Rufous Potoos & More! Which of these have you never heard of before? Do you know which one smells like buttered popcorn? (The answer is Binturongs.)

You will find the Life on the Goldilocks Planet books full of surprising, interesting animals, fun facts, engaging activities children will love, and quotes from scientists - which will all combine to help you have important conversations with the children you love. As you have these conversations you will find you are handing down confident faith - the best reason of all to get these books for the children you love!

You will find all of the Life on the Goldilocks Planet books on Amazon and at this link. Please share this post with the parents and grandparents you know.
