Dinosaurs for Kids by Ken Ham {Review}

Dinosaurs for Kids by Ken Ham {Review} - jenniferajanes.com

We downloaded the enhanced eBook of Dinosaurs for Kids by Ken Ham from iTunes before  Christmas. We began reading the book immediately, but it is so full of information that it has taken us a long time to get through the entire book. The book is full of pictures, videos, text, and audio that is completely interactive. It is fun and educational. I learned a lot from it myself!

Dinosaurs for Kids attempts to answer the questions kids have about dinosaurs and relate them to the Bible. I have had my children ask me a lot of questions that I wasn’t sure how to answer because I had never been taught. This book helped all of us and showed us the answers in the Bible.

The girls enjoyed the peek inside a dinosaur egg, learning what dinosaurs really ate, the extensive information provided about fossils and how they were made, and the pronunciations by Ken Ham so that we know how to correctly say the dinosaurs’ names.

I liked the way Dinosaurs for Kids laid out everything in a way that was both scientifically sound and easy for everyone (adults included 😉 ) to understand. Ken Ham provided both scientific and biblical evidence to support the information in the book. There was even a timeline of events presented for “evolutionary belief” and one for “biblical truth.” I was glad to see them explained so clearly.

The graphics are wonderful, and for every dinosaur that’s mentioned, you can tap the screen to learn more about that dinosaur—and hear its name pronounced.

We kept referring back to The True Account of Adam & Eve as we read Dinosaurs for Kids. There was a lot we read about in that book that related to this one, and having both really added to our discussions.

Henry Morris Study Bible - jenniferajanes.comWe studied this book during our science time for several weeks, and we kept another great resource with us, referring to it often. The Henry Morris Study Bible was invaluable, since the focus of its notes is apologetics and creationism. We found some great explanations about passages from Genesis and Job that were referenced in Dinosaurs for Kids.

I have wanted to use the Bible as the core text in our homeschool for a long time, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it. Using it as we went through Dinosaurs for Kids has really shown me how to do that. The Henry Morris Study Bible is King James Version, and we usually read the NIV or NLT with the kids, but it didn’t seem to throw them off. As we studied together, I explained words they didn’t understand and we read and discussed the notes together. It was a great experience, and we will be using this Bible as a resource in our home for a long time!

If you’re looking for great resources to use as you teach your children a biblical worldview, I highly recommend both Dinosaurs for Kids and The Henry Morris Study Bible.

  1. I had no idea there was a creationist Bible. That’s great! I love Answers in Genesis. My favorite resource for teaching apologetics is the Answers for Kids curriculum (not the books). It includes a CD of colorful slides for the kids while you’re studying. I thought I knew it all, but I even learned something from this curriculum.

  2. Jennifer, thank you for posting this to NextGen Homeschool’s What’s Working Wednesday Link-up! I have only seen a few of Ken Ham’s resources (and was surprised to find them at our public library!) and I have definitely been interested in using more. This gives me some great places to start. I didn’t know about the creationist bible either. We’re always learning something new, one of the reasons I love blog hopping! :)

    • You’re welcome! They’re both wonderful resources. The Bible is amazing!

      Blog hopping is great for learning new things. I’m glad I was able to share “what’s working” for us! 😉

    Since I don’t have kids, I don’t keep up as much as I should with what’s out there in the world of learning; however, the resources you shared in this post sound really interesting to ME, especially the Creationist Bible. Thanks for sharing. :)
