44 Animals of the Bible
Each beautifully illustrated animal includes details to help clarify its meaning for children, important cultural information, and connections between the historic world of the Bible and our world today!
God once told Job that animals are important to Him, and that they are a big part of His creation. God watches when the doe gives birth to her fawn. He makes the leopard swift to hunt its prey. He commands eagles to soar. Animals are important to God. He loves them and cares for them, and wants us to do the same. Many of the animals mentioned in the Bible are featured in 44 Animals of the Bible.
This beautiful 48 page hardback, full-color, children's book was amazing. My kids adored reading about each fascinating animal. From the ant, to the majestic eagle all the way to the viper, the author shows us how each animal has a design and purpose laid out by God. There are many animals that you will recognize, but also plenty that are not that familiar such as the asp, pygarg, ibex, and kite.
The illustrations are done in a water color design that brings this book to life and captures the curiosity of children. Each illustration has a short description or paragraph about the animal, its importance in the bible and a scripture verse that correlates with the animal. This is not meant to be an all encompassing book, but a place to get your curiosity peaked. Perfect book for kids ages 4-8 that you can read again and again.
