A Christian, faith-based picture book about why human beings are responsible for fighting climate change and how kids can help.

"This book is a gift not just to the kids who will hear it but to the adults who will read it to them. It is honest about the challenges we face without being scary, it is biblical about our call to action without being preachy, and it is practical about how to respond without being prescriptive. Everyone who encounters this book will be empowered to find the joy of serving and protecting our neighbors and God's good creation!"--Rev Kyle Meyaard-Schaap, VP of Evangelical Environmental Network, author of Following Jesus in a Warming World

"This is a book that will give children a sense of direction to respond faithfully to climate change and answer the call that God gives us to take care of creation!"--Emily Stirewalt, minister, Church of the Resurrection

"God's Earth is Something to Fight For is a wonderful primer to help children and their parents understand our responsibility as good stewards of God's creation. Leviticus 25, Psalm 24, and Colossians 1 remind us God created the earth. As followers of Jesus, we must defend it. Through easily understandable text and beautiful illustrations God's Earth...captures our calling to be creation caretakers. It should be read in every church nursery, Christian preschool, and at home."--Rev. Mitch Hescox, President/C.E.O., Evangelical Environmental Network.

Through Bible verses, author Amy Houts explains to kids that everyone, all human beings, must work together to save the Earth by reversing the effects of hundreds of years of human-created environmental damage.

From organizing peaceful protests and writing letters to elected officials to recycling and saving water at home, kids are encouraged to make change and to ask others to do so as well. And that they should not feel discouraged if they can't convince everyone.

From the book:

Did you know?

"The earth and everything in it belong to the Lord." (Ps. 24:1)

We are thankful we can live, work, and play here.

God didn't ask us to care for the earth--

He commanded us!
