Animals of the Bible from A to Z

(Chicago, IL: ACTA Publications, 2007)

The problem with children's books on religious themes is that they often feel like homework! Not this one. Children will love the book for the fabulous illustrations. Parents will be delighted by the chance to get in some "sneaky catechesis" on matters of faith. Parents and children have an opportunity to learn together by exploring familiar Bible stories as well as some lesser-known and surprising ones. Includes "Pages for Grownups" for easy identification of the Bible stories and suggestions for teaching valuable lessons. A delightful gift for children and a wonderful meditation for anyone who loves Bible stories, animals, and learning.
