When the world was new, the animals gathered around Adam and he gave them their names and the roles they would play in their brand-new home
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Kindergarten-Grade 2-A brown-skinned Adam undertakes the task of naming the animals with humor and enthusiasm, taking each creature's special characteristics into consideration. Finally, satisfied with his work, he falls asleep. Unlike some Creation retellings that are elegant and solemn, McFall's version emphasizes the delight of the world's beginnings. Guarnaccia uses blocks of color and flattened perspective in his illustrations, reinforcing the essential natures of the animals being named. Text and pictures together evoke a sense of playfulness, and the brevity and clarity of the prose make the story accessible to young children.
