Pleasant Valley Farm Series
These animal-themed picture books teach children biblical values in a simple, appealing way. Chester the Rooster is based on Proverbs 16:18, which cautions against pride. In the story, Chester thinks so highly of himself that he challenges Molly, the rabbit, to a duel. Chester realizes he overestimated his own abilities! Danny the Workhorse is based on II Thessalonians 3:10: "The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat." (NIV) Danny slacks off work for a week, and then he regrets it when he misses out on treats. Both stories are based on incidents that actually happened at author Helga Moser's parents' farm. Lovely watercolor illustrations. 44 pgs, hc.
