You Are Too Small, Little Eli!

Judy Yoder / Christian Light Publications

"You are too little to go along, Eli," his sisters would say when they left for the hills to pick blackberries.

"You are too young to go this year," Dad said when Eli's sisters and big brother Sanford hurried off to the Diamond Point School.

Even Grossmommy said he must wait to do bigger things. It seemed no matter how long he waited, Little Eli could never grow big enough to do the things he wanted to do.

He was just the little errand boy—always pumping buckets of water from the well and gathering corncobs for Mom to light the stove.

Still, lots of exciting adventures await a shy little Amish boy on the wide Oklahoma prairies during the dry years from 1939 to 1942—a train trip to Iowa, entertaining some strangers during a blizzard, and watching cowboys working near his family's faded little farmhouse.

When Grossdoddy dies, leaving the Amish people without a bishop, Eli is surprised by some dreadful news. Is he big enough to face a new challenge in his life? More info...

Amazing Insects Around the World
Coloring Book

Anthony Hurst / Hurst Publications

What is so fascinating about insects? First of all, they show the amazing creativity of God, our Creator. Scientists have identified around one million species of insects. But they estimate that there may be a few million more to discover and identify! The Amazon region of South America and the Congo region of Africa are just full of these unidentified critters.

Second, consider the immense variety of instincts in insects. Take, for example, just bees and wasps—so many types of nests that they build, and so many different foods that they eat. How do they know what kind of nests their species should build? Do they ever get mixed up and try to build one like their neighbor's? No, of course not. God gave them the natural ability to build the nest just like they are supposed to.

As you color these pictures, I hope you are amazed and thrilled with the greatness of God. More info...
