The Lion, the Bear and the Mulberry Tree

In these enchanting stories bears, lions, wallabies, cranes, eagles, wombats, caterpillars and many others come to life to illustrate key biblical teachings, such as resurrection, forgiveness, self-sacrifice and humility. After many years of urging by former students, parents and now-grown children who remember these stories, much-loved teacher and educator Rolph Mayer has produced this collection so that the stories might continue to be told and enjoyed.  While the stories are for children, they are designed to be read to children by parents, teachers, pastors or older siblings. The Lion, the Bear and the Mulberry Tree also includes notes for storytellers that explain some of the imagery and biblical texts that lie behind the stories themselves and which will help the storyteller to discuss the stories with children. The stories have all been delightfully illustrated by young Adelaide artist Emily Bensted.  The many drawings of Grumpy Wombat, Sad Donkey, Lion, Mouse, and Wallaby will help young readers and listeners imagine these delightful characters.
