Chapter OneOld Testament
The First Day Genesis 1:1–5
In the beginning God made heaven and earth. At first it was empty and dark. But God gathered up the light and called it day.
Then He gathered up the darkness and called it night. God was watching over everything.
What do you think God did next?
The Second Day Genesis 1:6–8
On day two God divided the air from the water. He put some water above the air and some below it. He named the air sky.
The next day God made something many children like, especially in the summer. Can you guess what it is?
The Third Day Genesis 1:9–13
On day three God was busy. He made puddles and oceans and lakes and waterfalls and rivers. He made the dry ground too.
Next He made plants. He made so many different kinds of trees, flowers, and bushes, that no one could count them all. God said His work was good.
Wow! God made so much on that day. But can you guess what was missing?
The Fourth Day Genesis 1:14–19
On day four God put the sun in the sky to warm the earth. He saw that the night was very dark, so God put the moon and the stars in the sky.
Then God made spring, summer, fall, and winter. All that He made was good.
Next God made flippy, flappy fun things. Let's see what they were.
The Fifth Day Genesis 1:20–23
On day five God made starfishes, octopuses, whales, and turtles. He made fast little fish for rivers and slippery big fish for the ocean.
He made big birds like eagles to soar in the sky and zippy little birds like hummingbirds. He made birds in all shapes, sizes, and colors.
Which bird do you think is the prettiest? Which is the strongest?
The Sixth Day Genesis 1:24–31
On day six God made the animals—puppies, cows, horses, kitties, bears, lizards, mice, worms, and lots more. Everything was good.
But something was still missing. There were no people. So God made some. And when He made them, He made them like Himself. He made them so they could be friends with Him.
Where do you think the first people lived?
Adam and Eve Genesis 2:1–5, 15–22; 3:20
God named the first man Adam. God put Adam in a beautiful garden. He gave him all the animals. He gave him all the fish and the birds too.
Then God gave Adam one more thing. God made a woman to be Adam's wife. Adam named his wife Eve. On day seven God rested from all His work.
Uh-oh. Something bad was about to happen on the earth.
