From the Church Times 20 September 2013

From the same stable comes Wow! Our Amazing Planet: A cross-curricular conservation resource by D. Chandler. If you buy only one book related to schools and the environment, this is the one. Everything about it is exciting. Its great strength is its focus on the local environment: bees, butterflies, blackbirds, snails, slugs, and spiders. Children will love the titles of these sections, such as "The birdy bits" and "The wriggly bits".

The more serious stuff is covered as well, in the same buzzy style. We have troubled species, troubled climate, and troubled places. There are colouring-in templates, word searches, and a strong Christian emphasis that the world is merely loaned to us to look after. A brilliant resource, and excellent value.

From Going for Growth - August 2013

Genesis 1 tells us that humankind has a responsibility for caring for creation. Wow! Our Amazing Planet has been written as a cross-curricular RE resource for schools to help children explore the theme of responsibility for our amazing planet. Although designed for schools, many of the ideas could be easily adapted for use in Sunday groups, or as part of a Green Day, bringing the church community together to think how it can best care for the natural world.
