Kids Books on the Antediluvian Age

Biblical History topics: Creation to Noah’s Flood

What is “Antediluvian”?

This word comes from Bible history and literally means “before the deluge.” Of course, in this context it means the Flood of Noah found in Genesis.

For pre-history books that are more general and would appeal to viewpoints outside the biblical realm, please visit that page. We are diligently searching for additional appealing books to publish there.

For books on pre-Flood and Creation topics, here are a few of the best for you.
