The bible’s stories abound with animals—Jonah’s whale, the ram sacrificed in Isaac’s place, the serpent who tempted Eve. Some fill minor roles, while some are central to their stories. But God watched over all of them, delighted in their creation, and used them for great purposes and important lessons. All of them bear witness to God’s wisdom and love.
This colorful book, with text that is brief and simple enough for young readers, presents a survey of the menagerie of creatures that populates the pages of the bible. These diverse creatures offer an excellent way to help children discover God’s world and its profound messages.
