3 Golden minutes with Award -winning Author and Blogger, Kimberley Payne,
Hi Kimberley, so nice to have you with us again! By way of introduction friends, Kimberley Payne is an award-winning author who combines her teaching experience and love of writing to create educational materials for children about family, fitness, science and faith.
Q. Now, please tell us about any major project(s) you have completed or embarked upon, since our last interview? A. I completed Adam’s Animals – Fun Facts about God’s Creation along with Super Simple Animal Crafts – a supplemental book on crafts for the kids.
Q. Wow! Give me three new skills/experience/knowledge/wisdom you would like to share with our followers? A.
- I learned that I’m not a craft-klutz but that there are crafts out there that even I can do!
- I learned a ton of information about animals. There’s so much cool stuff that it was hard to limit it to only 5 facts.
- I learned that if a door is closed (the Kickstarter campaign was not successful) I needed to look for an open window (published through CreateSpace)
Q. Finally, what are your goals for the next 6 months? A. I plan to continue writing for my blogs and start work on a third book in the Science & Faith Matters series.
Great! We wish every success with that. So friends, is your church running a Vacation Bible School (VBS) program this summer based on the Weird Animals curriculum (http://www.group.com/vbs/weird-animals)? Then consider using Adam’s Animals along with the accompanying craft book, Super Simple Animal Crafts http://bit.ly/SuperSimpleAnimalCrafts in your Sunday School program leading up VBS. It’s a great resource for your church to generate interest in your summer programs. Adam’s Animals is an entertaining and educational book that offers children loads of fun while they learn about the Bible. Inside you’ll find:
- Bible stories about the animal
- Fascinating facts about each animal
- Whimsical illustrations for creative colouring fun
- Word search puzzles to learn new words and improve spelling

Kimberley looks at the creatures found in the Bible and gives children some incredible scientific facts about them. She then follows those facts up with Scripture references from the Bible on what God has to say about the many animals she has listed in this book. If your child is one who likes “Did you know…?” books, they’ll love this one. Included in the book are word search activities and pictures to colour. – Laura Davis
Author Kimberly Payne has done a thorough job of researching the animal kingdom and combining it with scripture and biblical stories. This book has many fascinating facts about animals and is laid our in a very organized manner with pictures to color and word puzzles. – Carol Stratton
From ants to worms, children will not only find the facts interesting, some will even make them giggle. At the same time, they are learning how creative God is that he would make so many animals with distinct characteristics. – Carol Round
I plan to use this book in our home school program as it integrates faith, science, language and art. My kids love it – there is much information in it, our 12 year old couldn’t get through it in one sitting. – Michelle Evans
This is a delightful book filled with (as promised) fun facts about God’s creatures. I appreciated the focus on scripture and how Kimberley aligns God’s word with God’s creatures. The word challenges are a wonderful way to hone other skills such as spelling and reading, too, so this is a great activity to go along with the information. – Glynis Belec
This children’s activity book cleverly ties in scripture, so not only does it teach the inquisitive child about God’s creations, but also about God’s word. —Melanie Fischer
