Daniel in the Lions' Den

By Jean Marzollo
In Daniel in the Lions' Den, young readers learn Daniel's qualities of faith, loyalty, courage, and heroism are as important today as they were in biblical times. Jean Marzollo's innovative approach to these stories is sure to be welcomed by families looking for appealing ways to introduce the timeless lessons of the Bible to young children.

Description from Publisher

This story is more than a typical Bible picture book. Jean Marzollo created a book in which children will find something new each time they read it (and they will want to read it over and over again)! Daniel is a respected servent to both King Darius and to God. When the King is tricked into signing a law making it illegal to pray to anybody other than the king, Daniel was arrested for continuing to pray to God. King Darius grudgingly sent Daniel into a den of lions, but God sent an angel to protect him. The angel told all the lions to close their mouths and sang a lullaby to them to make them fall asleep. When King Darius went to rescue Daniel from the lions, he was happy to find that his friend was safe. This book features a conversational narrative, comic-book style conversations, poems to be sung to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", and a series of ants' commentary at the bottom of each page encouraging children to think further about the story. An excellent choice for elementary school readers.

The Story of Daniel the Lion's Den

By Michael McCarthy
The biblical story of Daniel does not easily lend itself to telling for children, so this version is all the more remarkable for relating the story in verse. Young Daniel is taken from his home in Jerusalem to Nabuchadnezzar's court. An interpreter of dreams, Daniel wins the confidence of the king and the enmity of other advisors, who trick the monarch into sending Daniel to the lions' den. But instead of devouring Daniel, the lions respond to his steadfast faith, and he is saved. Rather surprisingly, the text's aa / bb rhyme scheme doesn't get boring and moves the tale at an impressive clip. Also noteworthy are the watercolor-and-colored pencil illustrations, executed on watercolor paper. Ferri's interesting mix of geometric shapes and soft edges give the pictures a distinctive look. The author's note explains the story's message.
