Synopses & Reviews
A generation of children grew up loving Marjorie Parker’s devotions in Jellyfish Can’t Swim, which feature the interesting habits and behavior of animals. Now those children have their own families, and they want to share her accessible understanding of God with their little ones. Since publication of the original volume, she has received so many requests for more devotions to help children know God through his amazing creatures that she has written a new volume. As they show young readers God’s ability to work wonders in the animal kingdom and in their own lives, these devotions and charming illustrations suggest ways children can conduct themselves at home, at school, and at church in order to glorify God. With scriptures and prayers perfectly suited to a child’s developing faith, Jellyfish Still Can’t Swim will become a beloved family devotional for the next generation of believers.
