By drawing parallels between the familiar realm of nature and animals, which intrigue and appeal to children everywhere, this book is designed to shed light on concepts from the unseen, spiritual realm that can be difficult for young children to grasp.
Tell a young child that God is a “rock” without any further explanation and it’s hard to know what conclusions he’ll draw. Illustrate the idea with an animal seeking refuge from perilous waves on a large, solid rock, and he will begin to see what God offers him.
In addition to the rhyme that accompanies each illustration, at the back you’ll find factual information about each animal and a thought-provoking question regarding each concept presented (and a colored sticker of each animal?).
We hope this book will be a tool to enhance your child’s understanding of God and His Word as well as increase his sense of awe and appreciation for the wisdom and love of God displayed in each of His creatures (all of creation).
“But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you; and the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you. Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you; and let the fish of the sea declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.” Job 12:7-10
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made…” Romans 1:20
