30 well-known Bible stories and fun animal facts teach eager beavers all about the animals of the Bible.

 When you think of animals in the Bible, what animal comes to mind first? Is it one of the animals from Noah’s ark? Or maybe the sheep the shep­herds looked after on the night Jesus was born? Well-known children’s author Wendy Maartens has created an educational and fun-filled book for eager beav­ers who wish to learn more about the amazing animals found in the Bible.

Animals of the Bible explores 30 stories from the Old and New Testaments, and the special animals featured in them. Children will learn more about the part each animal play­ed in the Bible and how each animal can still be found living among us today. Each of the Bible stories contains interesting animal facts and a fun idiom with its meaning to teach children in a playful way more about the beautiful animals God created.

Catherine Groenewald’s brightly colored illus­trations will set children’s imaginations alight as they read about donkeys, lions, fish, eagles, and more, and learn valuable life lessons from our animal friends. Young readers will be amazed by God’s creativity and the wonder of creation.
