In the beginning, God created the Garden of Eden. But it was so lonely and he decided to create Adam too. Adam was the only human being in the garden. But Adam was sad even though the garden God had made for him was the most beautiful place in the world.
Adam needed someone to talk to and walk around the garden with. So God reached out his hand and created other animals. God told Adam to name them, so he named all the animals, birds and sea creatures as he pleased.
If it were you, what would you name them?
Luckily, he didn’t give then weird name like nunu and loo loo. He gave them names like rabbit, hen, cow, lion, fish etc. How amazing!
However, even with all these funny animals, monkeys inclusive, he was still bored.
So God made Adam fall asleep and took one of his ribs and from it made a woman called Eve. When Adam woke up, God brought Eve to him.
At last Adam was happy.
And so Adam and Eve lived together in God’s garden. And do you know what? They walked, talked to animals and most of all talked with God all the time—he was their best friend. Wow, it must have been fun living in the Garden of Eden. Just like Adam and Eve, God always makes sure that we have friends.
