A lesson in hope for every child who has worried about what comes next. Now a board book based on Adam & Eve's First Sunset!
Adam and Eve were enjoying their first day on Earth when they noticed the sky growing darker, the sun drifting toward the ground. Without the sun's heat and light, the night grew cold and dark. Adam and Eve were frightened. What was God doing? Was God taking away the sun?
With the first sunset, Adam and Eve learn how to get through the night and not be afraid of the dark. And when the new day dawns, they bless God for creating the day and the night.
