Frog's Rainy-Day Story and Other Fables

WORLD Magazine designated Frog's Rainy-Day Story and Other Fables as one of the 6 most outstanding Christian-themed picture books of the 21st century for good reason. 

A husband and wife team, Michael James Dowling (author) and Sarah Buell Dowling (illustrator), have co-created an award-winning book we want you all to know about.

This is not just a fun book of entertaining "kid's stories," although these stories are indeed entertaining. Here are eight fables for the whole family, that show how crazy things can get when any culture or social group departs from Truth, with a capital T. If we ever needed to be reminded of this, and to remind our kids of this, it is now.  

Frog’s Rainy-Day Story and Other Fables is a book rich in content that provides opportunities for the most important conversations parents, grandparents and teachers can have with children today. These creative fables contain essential, biblically-informed Truth necessary for knowing how to live as God intends. 

These fables were created with the goal of teaching the next generation what a biblical worldview is, and why it is so important. These tales illustrate True Truths necessary for the thriving of any civilization or society. To put it another way, they illustrate Truths that, when violated, result in the disruption or decay of any social group. 

These fables open up valuable opportunities to talk with the next generation about things that really matter. Jesus taught through parables that got people talking. Here are eight parables that can get significant conversations going in families, church groups and educational groups. 

Michael James Dowling has written more than two dozen books. He worked as a business executive, and spent twelve years on the staff of Trinity Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Charlottesville, VA. He also holds an engineering degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville.

Sarah Buell Dowling has illustrated books and children's toys. One of the toys she illustrated was awarded the Toys of the Year Award from Parenting Magazine. 

Frog’s Rainy-Day Story and Other Fables is a hardcover book, with 72 pages and 56 full-color illustrations. Order your copy here.
