Topsy Turvy Land

by Donna J. Shepherd

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Donna Shepherd's Topsy Turvy Land is a fun, colorful book about God's creation. Imagining what things would look like with polka dot zebras and green monkeys ultimately concluding God's creation is the best.

Published children's poet, accomplished writer, and budding theologian in her own right, Donna Shepherd's words sing off the pages. The imagery is delightful and sure to make children of all ages smile. Sixteen pages of whimsy and wonder culminate in the proclamation that God's creation is indeed very good.

Consider this passage: "He made the giraffe with his very long neck, / And the toucan with gigantic beak, / God must have had fun, / Creating each one, / And all in just under a week!" Rhymes which are pleasing are coupled with fun images sure to entertain.

Searching the stacks of children's books at libraries and bookstores can be overwhelming for any parent. It is nice to find a book that has a redemptive message for preschoolers. Sure to become a tattered favorite in chubby hands, this book is written with all the skill of Sandra Boynton. I highly recommend this book for children (and adults) of all ages. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book
