My Review:
 With brilliant photography the Galapagos Islands come alive like never before. A landscape untouched by human hands that displays God's beautiful handiwork---this is the Galapagos Islands---such breathtaking majestic beauty. The Galapagos Islands are islands in the Pacific Ocean just off the coast of Ecuador. They are a chain of islands that are a direct result of volcanic activity. Some still active and some that lay dormant. We also learn more about Darwin--the man so famously known for his rejection of God and His Word.

 This book on the beloved islands takes a commentary from several different experts and combines them all into one book for us all to learn from. It also helped my children and I to learn the difference between observational or operational science, science that happens in the here and now. And historical science which is science that encompasses origins, events from the past and the age of the earth. We are able to observe not only the beautiful landscapes from the islands but also the different living creatures that make their homes there.

 This book is available for purchase at this link and is priced at $18.99. It is a book full of gorgeous pictures published by Master Books. I read the book to my children and we enjoyed the pictures together.
