About this project

Did you know that a badger can eat up to 200 earthworms in one day? 

In Psalm 108:14 the psalmist wrote a poem praising God for how He cares for even creatures like badgers. 

Adam’s Animals is a children’s activity book that features more than 40 animals mentioned in the Bible and little-known facts about each. 

It’s ideal for 6 to 9 year olds, for home or school use and classroom sharing in grades 1-3 to supplement the Life Sciences Curriculum on Animal Life. 

It is the second book in the Science and Faith Matters series. The first book, Trees of the Book – Learning from God’s Creation, is a colourful introduction to trees, leaves and their corresponding Bible stories.

Please support the creation of Adam's Animals with a donation of any amount.

The first book in the series, Trees of the Book - Learning from God's Creation, was released in the spring 2013. Esther Haug provided the illustrations and Diane Roblin-Lee of byDesign Media published the book.

If you back Adam's Animals you will be supporting not only the author, but the publisher and illustrator as well! 

I would like to use the same publisher to create this next book in the series.

Janis says, "I love drawing pictures of animals and it will be a joy to create the illustrations for Kimberley’s new book. Plus working with Kimberley has always been exciting. Her enthusiasm always brings joy to my heart."

"This series focuses on learning through the Bible in new and exciting ways. Her new book in the series, Adam’s Animals, is unique not only because there is a scripture reference for each animal but because there are interesting and sometimes obscure facts that Kimberley has researched to fascinate both young and old. 

"One fact I did not know is that lions can go for 4-5 days without drinking water. That made me thirsty just to think about it. 

"We hope you will consider supporting this project so that we can have this well researched delightful book brought to life. Would you please help bring Adam's Animals to fruition? Join us today by donating to Adam’s Animals."

A look inside:

Ant

Proverbs 6:6 “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!”

See also: Proverbs 30:25

The wisest man who ever lived, Solomon, wrote the Book of Proverbs – a book of wise sayings to help us live godly lives. In this verse, Solomon points out that it is foolish to be idle and lazy. He says that we should learn from the example of the ant who doesn’t laze around and wait to be told what to do, but is willing to work hard and do what needs to be done. 

Did you know?

• Ants are from the insect family

• Ants can lift 20 times their body weight

• Ants have two stomachs – one to hold the food for itself and one to hold food to be shared with other ants

• There are 3 kinds of ants in a colony: the queen, the female workers, and males

• Ants communicate by using chemicals called pheromones

• Ants don’t have ears but they “hear” by feeling vibrations in the ground

Risks and challenges

Risks include:
1) artwork not being completed in time to submit to the publisher.
I've asked the illustrator to start some of the illustrations early so as not to be in a crunch at the end.
2) printing of the book delayed
The books will be shipped as soon as printing is completed
