"Timothy: A Little Fish with a Big Purpose!" by Brad Riley

Timothy lived in the Sea of Galilee with his family. He especially loved the stories his grandmother told about the history of their home. Everyday, his job was to clean up the things that didn't belong in their home. What happened the day he found a gold coin?

This is a story of obedience in all things, especially in the little things. Timothy did his job of cleaning up, but the day he found a coin, he also found himself in a net. He also found himself away from his home. Why was he in the net? Had he paid attention to his surroundings enough to get back home? Did he still think obeying was the right thing to do?

This is a wonderful short story for little children. It will keep their attention with the wonderful illustrations by Krystahl Goodale, and interesting words by Brad Riley. Timothy's story can help teach obedience, listening, paying attention, and more. I highly recommend it to parents of small children and workers in Children's ministries. I received my review copy from Cross Focused Media in exchange for an honest review.
