Mokey’s New Friends by Connie Arnold

mokey

Who says friends have to be alike? When Mokey skips out an open door at the zoo, he wanders off to find some friends to play with. He doesn’t discover any monkeys, but he does find some new friends who are just as fun to play with, no matter how different they are.

Mokey’s New Friendsย by Connie Arnold is a wonderful story that celebrates diversity. Though sometimes we are drawn to people who are similar to us, we also find friendship with those who have different likes and abilities than we do. With this charming book, Arnold encourages kids to accept the differences and enjoy the time spent with friends.

Artist Marina Movshina lends her impressive talents to beautifully illustrate this story. From the minute the reader meets Mokey, they will be captivated by the pictures Movshina has painted to bring this story to life.

Kids will enjoy this delightful story over and over again.

Olive and the Great Flood by Connie Arnold

Olive and the Great Flood Olive and the Great Flood by Connie Arnold is a sweet story of how Olive the dove helped Noah and his passengers while they awaited the end of the flood.

This rhyming story shares the Biblical account of Noah’s Ark from the perspective of the tiny dove sent out after the rain had stopped to check for dry land. She helps calm everyone’s fears with her gentle coos and peaceful songs until the day when it is safe for all the passengers to disembark. What a charming and unique way to share a beloved Bible story.

Part of Guardian Angel Publishing’s Wings of Faith line, the beautiful illustrations are provided by artist Kathleen Bullock. She manages to capture meaningful expressions not only onย Moses, but also the animals’ faces. I will be on the lookout for more of her work.

A perfect way to remind children of God’s promise,ย Olive and the Great Floodย will show children how God can use even a tiny dove to reveal His greatness.

Animal Sound Mix-up by Connie Arnold

Wouldn’t it be confusing if you heard a donkey say bow-wow? Would you scratch your head if a monkey said moo? How about some squawking pigs? Seen any of those lately? In this silly, rhyming story, Connie Arnold asks readers what it would be like if all the animal sounds got mixed up.

I like books that can be zany, but still have an excellent message. Animal Sound Mix-up is definitely one of those books. While it’s light-hearted, by the time the reader gets to the end, they realize God’s hand in creation is quite evident. Animals speak the way they do because He made them each to speak in their own unique way. It’s a nice message. A different take on the power of the Creator thanย I’ve seen before.

Arnold’s rhymes are perfectly matched by the lovely artwork of Kit Grady. All types of animals come alive with Grady’s colorful images. Any of these illustrations would make lovely murals for a child’s room. I only wish she didn’t live so far away from me.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Animal Sound Mix-up is a fun book with a great message.ย Christian homes with youngsters will enjoy this book.
