Animals Of The Bible/Angels Of The Bible/Children Of The Bible (Combo)Wendy Maartens
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.
“What are angels?” “What do they do?” “Do they have names?” In Angels of the Bible, renowned children’s author Wendy Maartens answers these questions and more about God’s angels. Children will be introduced to special angels from 18 different Bible stories like Jacob’s dream, Balaam’s talking donkey, the angel who gave food to Elijah, and the angel who brought good news to Mary. Angels of the Bible includes colorful illustrations by Catherine Groenewald that bring to life the angels and the Bible stories they appear in. Also included are instructions for folding your very own pop-up angel card.
Angels of the Bible will help children to discover that angels are real and they are everywhere – they’re God’s loving servants and they are our friends!
The children of the Bible were ordinary children. Some of them were obedient and brave. Others were scared and lonely. But God had a special plan for each of them. God has a special plan for your children too.
