The Animals’ Caravan – adventures through the Bible with Caravan Bear and friends
Book 1: The Journey Begins
Christopher Rabbit stared at the parcel. Someone had sent him a present! He tore open the wrapping and inside was a book with the words ‘The Bible’ on the cover… with a label ‘Read Me’.
As Christopher Rabbit wonders at this odd present, a brightly painted gypsy-style caravan hurtles down the road… and narrowly misses him. He picks up the book and joins the caravan travellers – Hector the horse, Caravan Bear and Whitby the dog – on their adventures.
Enjoy Christopher Rabbit’s storytelling along the way, interrupted with frequent questions from the travellers and other friends they meet. What did Adam and Eve talk about to God? Why didn’t the animals eat each other on Noah’s Ark? How did Jonah come out of the whale?
The Animals’ Caravan has echoes of children’s classics such as Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland, as the caravan travellers form a great friendship on their journey together.
Book 2: Stories Jesus told
‘It’s so good to see you all,’ Christopher Rabbit said. ‘I’ll just get my bag.’
‘And the Bible,’ Caravan Bear called after him… ‘We want some more stories,’ called Whitby.
It’s spring! Caravan Bear once again hitches up Hector the horse to the brightly painted gypsy-style caravan and, with Whitby the dog and Christopher Rabbit, set off in search of new adventures.
Enjoy Christopher Rabbit’s storytelling along the way, interrupted with frequent questions from the travellers and other animals they meet. Why wasn’t Jesus born in a special place, like a palace? If a shepherd already has a big flock, what does it matter if he loses one or two? Was it fair that the father gave a great feast for his younger son, who had spent all his money?
