Product Description

Review

"Born With a Bang tells the story of the creation of the universe with bouncy language and magical, stunning conceptual art ... I took it to the home of a friend, an amateur astronomer with three telescopes, and his 4-year-old daughter ... She loved the story, and wanted to look at the pictures as we read to her. With its entrancing illustrations, this book is nearly edible; indeed, the 4-year-old suggested copying an illustration or two and eating it."

I don't like this book. The science is all there, but the idea of the story being related by "the universe", that was apparently sentient before it existed, and made a conscious decision to explode and form, well itself, offends me a bit.
Coupled with stuff like "Now, my dear earthling, make yourself comfortable and let's begin at the very beginning ..." didn't do anything at all for my optimism. And then the pages headed "Discoveries by Earthling scientists" enhanced my gloom.
So it came as no surprise to me to find that the author is "an adjunct staff member at Genesis Farm, teaching the Sacred Universe Story.".
And a review on the back cover says "Our Universe is the great Being expressing itself in many forms. Some call this Being God; others call it something else. Whatever the name, this story shows that the Universe is profoundly alive."
So if you're looking for a book that lets you know that the Big Bang was just the start of a process that enabled humanity to exist because chemicals happened to come together and respond to the environment, I doubt that you'll get much support from this book.
Try "Older Than The Stars", but see my review for that and make your own decision.

With a very literal and inquisitive 6 year old I wanted a book to explain the universe and found this on amazon. It is absolutely wonderful, the theory of the universe's beginning based on current research but pitched in lovely simple language, with a touch of humour and gorgeous illustrations. Perfect. He has already asked for the next 2 books.

Format: Paperback
beautifully written and illustrated with scientific discussion and theories separately at the back so as not to ruin the flow, but be there for inquisitive 7 year olds!
appeals to a wide range of children

This book describes the story of the universe without the idea of a creator. the way the story is told is lovely for children (and adults) who may fear the absence of a god. The story tells us how every atom that makes up every part of us has always existed and always will. It is a beautiful and reassuring story.

Wonderful My Grandson loves the book. He has learned from it and is keen to know more so I will be on the lookout for more interesting books for both him and my other two grandchildren
