While this book tells the story of Expedition 13 from Colonel William's perspective as flight engineer, it also gives us a front-row seat in the Space Station and allows us to look with him through the lens of his camera.
A children's picture book for kids 3-10, The Work of His Hands for Kids offers photographs of Earth and space taken by Colonel Jeffrey Williams during his 534 days in space, juxtaposed with simple sentences that tell the salvation story and highlight God's awesome creation.
During his six months aboard the International Space Station in 2006, Col. Williams orbited the earth more than 2,800 times and took more photographs of earth than any astronaut in history. Each photo contains lessons about God’s creation.
Col. Williams shares some of his photos in his two books, The Work of His Hands and The Work of His Hands for Kids. He has graciously agreed to make himself available for a book signing immediately following the breakfast.
