The "It" of the title It Couldn't Just Happen is evolution. Richards tackles the creation/evolution debate, addressing theories about the origin of the universe and life, the fossil record, dinosaurs, missing links, and other hot topics. He mixes stories, illustrations, and science facts to shatter evolutionary teaching. You can jump around in the book, reading about topics most interesting or important to your children at the moment. The last section of the book deals with the Bible as the source of truth, the validity of the Bible, and the Bible's teaching about creation. At the end of each chapter is "Just for Fun"—questions, project ideas, and research assignments.
Full-color illustrations and a lively writing style will hold children's interest far better than science textbooks. This book is ideally suited for homeschooling families with children of all ages.
