Children’s Book Series for Sunday School Teachers

The Animals Used By God Series are animal parables filled with stories that we all know and love but with a twist. The animal kingdom has a special part of God’s mission. Prince the Lion is a lion who wants to be used by God, but becomes discouraged after being threw into a dark den. He wonders how can God use him in this dark and lonely place. Sometimes we don’t see anyway out of our circumstances, but God sees us all the time. With God nothing is impossible. It doesn’t matter who we are or where we are, God can make a way. Just when Prince almost gives up hope, he meets Daniel.

Pablo, the Donkey is bullied by other animals. He can not run as fast as the horses, he is not tall like the camels, he doesn’t have beautiful coats of fur like the sheep, he does not give milk like the cow, or eggs like the chickens, yet he is made just right for what God will need him for, and Pablo learns that not once, but twice in history he is used to carry the Lord of Lord’s, Jesus.
