Character Sketches, Volume 1
The very nature and character of God is seen all throughout His created universe. Job remarked, “But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee” (Job 12:7-8).
Each section of this Character Sketches volume begins with a captivating “read-aloud” nature story that introduces the character quality being taught and continues with interesting facts on the featured animal’s characteristics and physical features. This is followed by a story from Scripture that illustrates the character quality, along with background information on the individual or situation in the story, which is then summed up in a “character sketch.” Generously illustrated with stunning lifelike watercolor and pencil drawings, this oversized book (9 1/2” by 12 3/4”) will be treasured and enjoyed for generations.
The series is designed to be a tool that fathers can use to teach their children basic concepts of Scripture that are illustrated in the world of nature. Among our best-loved publications, hundreds of thousands have enjoyed the gripping stories and beautiful illustrations that the volumes contain.
In Character Sketches, Volume I, you will learn about animals such as the Great Horned Owl and how it demonstrates loyalty, and the Raccoon and how it displays initiative. You will also discover from Scripture how people like Daniel showed decisiveness and Stephen exhibited determination.
