“Explore the wonders of Creation in this first book from the Wizzy Gizmo children’s Bible Adventure series.

It all began when Wizzy Gizmo places the Bible on his incredible Gizmovision invention. The machine whirls and hums, the room begins to vibrate and shake, lights flicker on and off. The invention is surrounded by tiny arcs of electricity, as a sphere of blue-green light emerges and begins to grow bigger and bigger. There is a flash, and then things really begin to happen…”

Wizzy Gizmo Review

In the first book in the Wizzy Gizmo series, Wizzy and the kids get to experience what creation was like first hand thanks to the Bible being placed on the Gizmovision. Creation happens right around, above, and below them. A section of scripture is read aloud by the gizmovision, and than it unfolds before their eyes.

To be honest guys, I haven’t done a review that I haven’t liked, but this has been the one my girls have been most enthusiastic about! They were excited when it arrived in the mail, they were excited when I told them we would be reading it for school, and they couldn’t wait until the next day when we would read a couple more chapters. They were bummed when we finished the book, and excited again when I told them I had the digital copy of the second  book on my computer we could read (for review purposes only).

It was so great to sit with my girls and read a book to them that painted such an amazing picture of what Creation may have looked like, taking it verse by verse, and day by day. I didn’t have to change the story or make things up because there was some evolution junk in it because it was all straight from the Word. The authors, Chris Del Aguila and Justin Cummins did an excellent job creating a storyline that could support the weight of Creation as recorded in the book of Genesis.

So here are some fun facts about the books.

  • In the front you will find a list of the characters in the book with their picture and a brief description. I love this because there are several characters to keep track of and knowing a little about them ahead of time makes for a better connection with the story (yes, I’m a book junkie and always have been, so I was uber thrilled about this!)
  • Throughout the book you will find words in bold. These are vocabulary words. In the back you can find the list of vocabulary words and their definitions. As a homeschool mom, I jump at any opportunity for my children to expand their vocabulary so I like this added learning opportunity.
  • At the end of the book is a list of review questions to help your children solidify the knowledge they just learned.

Wizzy Gizmo Who Created Everything? ($12.99) is the first in the Wizzy Gizmo series. The second is In His Image ($12.99). And if you’re looking for audio books for kids Who Created Everything? ($9.99-$14.99) is also available as an audio book as well.

Another wonderful training resource for your kids is their Fast Track Bible Pack ($14.99). It’s a set of cards, one for each of the books in the New Testament. On each card you have The book Title, Theme, Author, outline, key chapters, key passages, key doctrines, and key people. Basically, what I paid big bucks in college for, you can have as part of your homeschool resources. I would have LOVED to have learned this stuff in school. It’s so much easier to retain this kind of information when you’re younger than when you’re in college (not to mention, WAY cheaper!)

If you’re a think ahead type of person, any of these products would make great Christmas presents. And shipping is always free on orders of $25 or more!
