It was the longest drought that anyone in the county had ever seen. Everyone was praying for rain. The fields were dry, the animals were thirsty and everyone was really hot. But only one little girl really believed that God would answer and she taught her minister a lesson. Find out how she did this by reading the rest of the story and others in this book. Read about the drought, the poor man who was made rich and the shepherd boy who lost his sheep. You will also read about people and lots of children who faithfully stood up for Jesus. Scriptural references are taken from the King James Version of the Bible and the questions are based on this.

"There are introductions to the world of the imagination in which everything seems new, painted with bright, delicious, and painful colors. No enjoyment can compare to they craving for a story being satisfied. When such tales are joined to eternal truths and winsome lessons, never to be forgotten, what family delights are displayed." - Geoff Thomas
