RE- The Garden of Eden
The Bible says that God created the whole world. He created the clouds, the rivers, the trees, the fish, and the animals. He even created the first man and woman, named Adam and Eve. God placed them in a beautiful garden called the Garden of Eden.
We have a picture of a garden. It looks like a nice place doesn't it? However, some things are missing. Some of the characters are lonely. Maybe we can complete the picture by adding some characters in the places where they belong. When we finish, we will have a better idea of what the whole Garden of Eden was like, just like in the Bible.
