We received a sample in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.
We had the opportunity to facilitate
a review for the book Universe Verse
by James Lu Dunbar.
As I thought about about writing my
review about this book, I wondered
if it should be mentioned that if
you come from a strong religious
point of view, maybe you should read
this before giving it to your child.
Some people get controversial when it
comes to God and the "Big Bang Theory".
I have my own beliefs in God and of
course believe science is a big part of
our world, but sometimes people get
aggravated when the two are combined.
We certainly try to keep debate away from our
blog, because every person has their own
right to their thoughts and feelings,
there should never be a need to argue that
point. I say I have the up most respect for the
individual beliefs of everyone. The opinions
here are my own and honest.
Universe Verse written by James Lu Dunbar is a
98 page verse about the history of our universe.
Yes, 98 pages of nicely written verse,
expressing his thoughts of every major
scientific milestone in the history of
existence. This book is really one of book
of a series of three. The book introduces
things such as energy, space, time,
matter, particles, solar systems and so
An elderly couple, the man reminding me
of Einstein, humorously guide you through
the book. The illustrations are beautifully
impressive. I think it was a fun read and
can certainly broaden a child's thinking,
and challenge them to want to learn more
about the universe around them. It is an
interesting and fun read, not only for
children but I think some adults would
also find that this book takes science
and makes it interesting.
