Review:44 Animals of the Bible by:Nancy Pelander Johnson
About the Book:
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.
About the Author:

Complete with scripture the publishers at Master Books have published a book to help your child get a visible image of 44 Animals of the Bible. Included in this book are several animals that are comparable to modern day animals but you will see a few you don't recognize. Such as an Asp, an Asp is a snake similar to a Cobra or a Gier a large bird similar to an Eagle.With each animals description is a short summary of how they were used during Bible times. Master Books works hard to bring to life each and every creation of God to life for our children. I always find their products God focused and that makes my heart sing.
The author and illustrator have produced a lovely book geared for ages 4-8. The illustrations are colorful and each animal has one. The scripture and wording are simple enough for early elementary and of course, it is a great read-aloud for those unable to read. The price for this book is $9.99 for hardcover or $6.99 for downloadable version---if interested here is the link. Joshua enjoyed reading about "God's" animals!
