Animals of the Bible

Item Details

Dorothy P. Lathrop's ANIMALS OF THE BIBLE first introduced children to the most memorable animals of the Old and New Testaments over sixty years ago, and her extraordinary book was awarded the very first Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished picture book for children. Now, in honor of the sixtieth anniversary of the Caldecott Medal and of its first recipient, this special edition of ANIMALS OF THE BIBLE celebrates Lathrop's award-winning collection of some of the most beautiful and appealing stories in the Bible. Dorothy Lathrop's richly detailed black-and-white drawings of the creation, Noah's ark, Daniel's lions, Jonah's "great fish", the animals around the Christmas manger, and many others bring the Bible's most fascinating animals vividly to life. A glorious tribute to a great tradition in children's literature, this special anniversary edition will be a keepsake to treasure for years to come. This book was planned by Helen Dean Fish, who selected the accompanying texts from the King James Bible.
