This is the story of a boy who saved all his money to buy his mother a special gift.  a week's worth of food for their poor family. But he was heartbroken to find out it was only enough money to buy two fish and five loaves of bread.  not even enough food for a whole dinner!

As he trudged home, he saw a huge crowd of people gathered around a man from Nazareth who was healing the sick and teaching about God.  But there was a problem.  The people were getting hungry.  

The teacher met the boy and asked him a strange question.  "Little boy, will you give Me your bread and fish so I can feed these people?"

The boy was confused at first, but then he said yes, and that's when a miracle happened!

Roxy the Ritzy Camel

Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano brings the vain and possession-loving Roxy the camel to life to demonstrate the familiar Bible verse: It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Little ones ages three and older will learn that possessions are only things...and definitely NOT the most important things. Brightly illustrated by Richard Cowdrey and written in engaging, funny rhyme, this storybook follows Roxy's journey from her waterless home in the desert to a great city of beauty she's heard about but never seen. Along the way she learns that the only way to attain true happiness is to share—or even give away—what she possesses.

DeStefano finds a fresh take on the events that lead to Easter. Using a small scriptural reference to the unridden donkey that Jesus rides in triumph into Jerusalem, DeStefano imagines a transformative relationship between a small, weak donkey and a figure who gives him strength and asks him to have faith. The text’s rhymes (“No matter how much he tried or he cried/ This was a donkey no one could ride”) make for easy read-aloud. Cowdrey’s illustrations focus on the donkey, conveying the development from initial lethargy to the donkey’s energetic and confident strength. It’s a welcome change from Easter chicks and bunnies. Ages 5–up. - Publishers Weekly
