Animals of the Bible, A Picture Book

Helen Dean Fish

When it was initially released in 1937, Dorothy Lathrop’s Animals of the Bible earned the first-ever Caldecott Medal. The award-winning collection of some of the most unusual creatures from the Bible is now available in a special deluxe edition in recognition of the sixty-fifth anniversary of this renowned medal and its initial recipient. The popular creation, Noah’s Ark, the first Christmas, and many other legends are shown in thirty exquisitely realistic black-and-white paintings. This special anniversary edition is a magnificent homage to a long-standing tradition in children’s literature and will be treasured for years to come.
