A Big Momma and Some Squash

I was gonna call this post 'lets get biblical, biblical.. but I was afraid I'd scare you all away!

'So, biblical?' You might be saying.  Yes, actually, biblical.  These are two cute books about the creation of the world.  They are sweet, sometimes a little silly but just plain cute.

Whether you are a creationist or an evolutionist they are have tender little message about getting along, treating each other well, and being loved.
This book shows God creating world and gives us his thought process. It's cute! I'm particularly fond of...   

And how about...squash? I like that name, God said.  I think I'll use it again. Acorn Squash. Butternut squash. Even zucchini squash. I might have a game and call it squash. Or put my hand on something and press down hard and call that squash. 

And when he finishes creating everything:

I'll be around. You may not see me. But I'll be here- and there- wherever you are, whenever you need me. Even in the middle of the night. Think of me. I'll be thinking of you.

This one is a little different and obviously takes some liberties, but it really is sweet. (And has wonderful art by Helen Oxenbury.) I love the end...

Big Momma had one more thing to do, she lined up all those folks and said, 
'This is a real nice world we got here, and you all better take some good care of it. 
I'm taking a day off to rest now, but I'll be keeping an eye on you."

That's what Big Momma said all right. And you better believe she meant it. 

Every once in a while, when she's burping the baby,
or making cookies, or rocking that little baby to sleep, 
Big Momma looks down and says, "Better straighten up down there."

And every so often Big Momma looks down on this nice little world she made
and she nods and she smiles, and she says, "That's good. That's real good." 

I don't know if these are really your kind of books. Sorry if they're not, I kind of love how they present the idea of being cared for and watched over. Happy reading!
