Reviewer: Marta Aldrighetti
This book is fascinating, both for kids and adults. It explains the different types of animals: amphibians, birds, fish, mammals, reptiles. Then it explains the 4 classes of invertebrates: arachnids, insects, gastropods, worms. Jesus liked to make his point by telling stories or parables with animals.
Readers can learn from each of the 39 animals of the book, a saying and proverbs of the Bible and its meaning, a nice pic, curious info. Such as "Frogs cannot live in the sea or any saltwater," or "Snails can sleep for three years."
I received a copy of this book from the author through Interviews & Reviews.
Reviewer: Jane Mouttet
Kids are interested in animals. Kimberly Payne has done her research. Animals in the Bible looks at over 40 animals that are found in the Bible. For each animal she starts with a Scripture passage that references the animal. She continues with a short synopsis of the story followed by a list of facts regarding the animal. The text is interesting and the information would be useful for primary students doing research about animals. It could also be used by teachers as part of Bible lessons or classroom devotions.
I was disappointed by the illustrations in Animals in the Bible. Janis Cox used black and white sketches to illustrate the text. They are fairly well done, but kids look for brightly colored and generally reject books with black and white illustrations.
Animals in the Bible could find a place in K-12 Christian school library. It could be a useful resource book.
This book was provided courtesy of the author through Interviews & Reviews. This is my honest review.
