Review: Daniel for Lunch: The Tasty Tale of Daniel in the Lions' Den
Daniel for Lunch: The Tasty Tale of Daniel in the Lions' Den by Kelly Pulley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a charming retelling of the Biblical story of Daniel and the lion's den. Kelly Pulley writes the story in rhyming prose that children will enjoy, and her illustrations are cute and captivating as well.
While there is no getting around the possible scariness of people being fed to lions, Kelly manages to tell the story in such a way that little ones can instead focus on the protection of God and Daniel's dedication. The only thing I would have liked to have seen in the story is that Daniel and King Darius were more than just king and servant. Still, this would be a wonderful addition to any children's library.
