Dinosaurs Stars of the Show by Amie Zordel and illustrated by Joanna Borrero is a wonderful addition to the library of any family who believes in Biblical Creationism and not “millions and millions” of years ago. Mrs. Zordel is a wife and mom of three daughters, who was inspired to write this book after her seven-year-old daughter’s exposure to evolution while watching children’s programming. She wanted to provide a way for families to give Biblical answers to questions that children ask.

The beautifully illustrated, eight-by-ten, hardcover book begins with a little girl watching a show, innocently enough, about dinosaurs. On comes the scientist who starts talking about how dinosaurs are millions of years old and they formed out of nothing without a plan. The little girl is stunned and starts out to find out for herself about the truth behind the dinosaurs.

The little girl pulls out her Bible and begins to read about the creation of our earth, by our Heavenly Father. My children all enjoyed this book; with the rhyming of the words, it really keeps their attention as well as driving home what we believe about Biblical Creationism. Also, since it involves dinosaurs, this does appeal to almost all children; all three of mine are enjoying learning more about dinosaurs, although they tire of hearing millions of years. I really recommend that if you want to surround your children with Biblical examples, and they enjoy dinosaurs, this is a good place to start. It counters the evolution based theories in an easy to understand, child like manner.

This is an excellent book, one that can be treasured for years to come. I found myself wrapped up in the story as well and enjoying the pictures. Another good idea would be to request your local library to purchase a copy or two, so families can all have access to the truth about evolution.

    Sounds like a great book to teach creationism!

    Standard geology is wrong as well as carbon dating – but then most people believe what they are told in school and colleges without reading the Truth for themselves.

    For Christians and those who believe in God of The Holy Bible the book is telling the truth.

    Visit the Creation Museum, visit Ken Ham’s website there is great scientific data regarding the millions of years ‘theory’

    Yet, I still don’t see the connection to the book and geology? So I will have to agree to disagree and leave it at that.

  • If the book is telling “the truth behind the dinosaurs” – that dinosaurs didn’t live “millions and millions” of years ago – then standard geology must be wrong. So how come it works so well?

    It’s important to know if the book is telling the truth, right?

    I am not sure what this has to do with the book?

  • Finding oil is a very high-stakes issue for oil companies. Trillions of dollars are riding on it. When they look for the most likely spots to drill, do they use Flood geology, or mainstream? Which one actually delivers the goods?

    If the Earth is only 6,000 years old, where did the oil come from? If created in the ground, is there a way to predict where it might be found? Or perhaps it did form from plankton, but 10,000 times faster than any chemist thinks it could in those conditions? A young Earth and a Flood would imply some interesting questions to ask, some extremely valuable research programs to start. How come nobody’s actually pursuing such research programs?

    Why don’t creationists put together an investment fund, venture capital for things like oil and mineral rights? If “Flood geology” is really a better theory, then it should make better predictions than standard geology does. The profits from such a venture could pay for a lot of evangelism. Why is no one doing this?
