Last night I read Timothy: A Little Fish with a Big Purpose! by Brad Riley. This is a very sweet book about a little fish who desires to be obedient to his mom & grandmother. In the middle of being obedient, he discovers an exciting adventure that involves a gold coin, a net & one of Jesus’ disciples. Timothy believed that his obedience to pick up things on the ocean floor that did not belong there was all a part of a larger purpose.
This is a beautiful & simple story that will illustrate to children that obedience is important & that it matters to God. Children will learn that every act of obedience is noticed by our God. They can come to learn that as they put their trust in God & obey Him, He will place their lives where they can make a difference in the lives of others.
The illustrations are colorful & pleasant & beautifully done by Krystahl Goodale. They will draw children into the story before them.
