In the beginning, the earth was empty. Darkness covered everything. But God was there, and He had a plan.

“Let there be light,” He said. And suddenly, golden light shone all around. God called it “day.” He called the darkness “night.” With the light and the darkness, the first day passed.

On the second day, God said, “Let there be a great space.” So the space was formed, deep and high. God called the space “sky.”

God made rivers and seas on the third day. He formed the mountains and deserts, the islands and beaches. He planted tall trees, swaying grasses, and flowers of every color.

When the fourth day came, God put lights in the sky: the fiery sun for daytime, the sparkling moon and dancing stars for night.

On the fifth day, God filled the water with fishes of all shapes and sizes. He made the birds to glide across the sky.

God made animals on the sixth day: furry animals, scaly animals, smooth, sleek animals. And on that day, God made man. When He was finished, God saw that everything He had made was very good. And on the seventh day He rested.
