    Animal Stories from the Bible

    The Bible is full of animals that often play a central part in the unfolding of its stories, but that are sometimes overlooked or misunderstood. The eight stories in this illustrated collection are narrated by some of those creatures, each offering
    a unique point of view and fresh insights into their often-told tales. Among the menagerie, you will meet the raven that Noah released from the ark, the lions in Daniel's den, and the lamb at the stable in Bethlehem. True to the Bible yet freshly original, their stories are told with sincerity and simple faith.

    For teachers and parents wanting to get the most from the collection, an "About the Stories" section includes Bible references and notes to help unpack the deeper meaning of each tale. With the addition of Martina Peluso's stylish illustrations, the result is an engaging addition to both children's and library bookshelves.

    Stories include: The Snake's Story (The Garden of Eden); The Raven's Story (Noah and the Flood). The Whale's Story (Jonah); The Lion's Story (Daniel in the Lions' Den); The Lamb's Story (The Birth of Jesus); The Wolf's Story (Parable of the Lost Sheep); The Donkey's Story (Parable of the Good Samaritan); The Cockerel's Story (The First Easter).
