For People Who Love: Bible Stories
Book: The Good Book's Guide to Animal Tails, by Nicole Cannella
It has been called many things: The Good Book, The Word, The original history text, and the Bible.
It is full of faith and triumphs; trials and redemption and... animals!
So many animals fill the Greatest Story ever told. From the Old Testament to the New Testament, animals weave through the tales of nobles and lowly; of kings, queens, and commoners.
The great storyteller C. S. Lewis stated he wished he had penned a book through the eyes of the biblical animals. That inspired us to do just that and to do it for children. To imagine what the world of the Bible and its people would have looked like through the eyes of the animals who that were present.
From the ram beside Abraham to the donkey that carried Jesus, Good Book's Guide to Animal Tails brings the stories of the Bible to a endearing and unique new life.
