“Mama, what IS light?” Join Mila and mama as they explore the answer to this question in Holy Scripture and in the world around them through science. The first book in the, “Genesis: His word and His works” series builds a much needed bridge for youth between the science they learn in school and the Orthodox Christian faith through which their lives are lived. With important mid elementary science standards embedded in the story, Mila and mama make observations, conduct experiments, draw conclusions and engage in other elements of the scientific process all of which lead them to greater appreciation for and glorification of God’s gift of creation.
